Missed it by that much! Sorry about that, chief. The Cone of Silence. Shoephones. Ring any bells? Go ask your parents, and they'll bla-bla-bla on about some old brilliant telly show called Get Smart, about an accident prone spy called Maxwell Smart. You'd better listen to them, because the movie adaption is a masterpiece.

If you watch the old series, you'll notice quite a difference between characters. Today's Anne Hathaway in the role of Agent 99 is quite aggresive, admits she is more skilled than Agent 86, and takes the lead, whereas Barbara Feldon, the old 99, is rather in adoration of the bumbling agent. Also, technology is incorporated more into the film, and there's a much wider peek into the previous life of both agents.

Oh, right! The film! I forgot to tell you what it's about...

Hopeful lab analyst Maxwell Smart (the hilarious Steve Carell) is dying to be a CONTROL agent, just like the dashing Agent 23 (played by Dwayne \"The Rock\" Johnson), who seems to have everything just fine. Then, his dream comes true, and he is reluctantly paired with the skilled and mysterious Agent 99. They sneak their way to Moscow, where they seek an enormous supply of yellow radiation. This is being kept by dastardly KAOS villian Siegfried, who plans to bomb CONTROL and take over the government. After run-ins with a surprisingly sensitive hitman, an embarrasing dance scene, an unexpected betrayal, and a rat in the pants, can Max and 99 save CONTROL before it's too late?

Of course, this movie is PG, and for a few reasons. I heard the S word 3 times, the B word twice, the finger shown once, and a few other things, but tweens and younger will quickly forget it and get caught up in the side-splitting gags of the genius Steve Carell. Very much so cringe-worthy, with plenty of ouch and eew, such as harpoons in the face and an overflowing vomit bag, but hey! What did you expect with the mischief that Agent 86 gets into?

Parents will savour the nostalgia, and kids will soon be shoe-phonigly enchanted too.
