Missed Max By That Much...

"I know "The Nude Bomb" is riddled with problems, especially in contrast with the classic show from which it was spawned... but still, for all of us who loved and missed Maxwell Smart, it was quite wonderful to see him on the big screen. The main reason to see the film, perhaps the only one, is to watch Don Adams reprise his Emmy winning portrayal and be reminded as to what a great, strong comic actor he is. Don takes the often substandard material in this film and wrings many, many laughs from it. The final twenty minutes actually recapture some of the original "Get Smart!" magic with a cloning sequence that predates "Austin Powers" as well as Mini-Me. Chalk the whole escapade up to nostalgia for one of TV's most beloved characters: Don Adams as Secret Agent Maxwell Smart, Agent 86 From Control."
Imagine Agent 86 in an alternate universe

"I think the main reason this movie gets so many poor reviews is because it does not stay true to the original series. If you take this movie as a stand-alone film -- not expecting Agent 99 or the same Maxwell Smart as the old TV series -- then you may be able to enjoy it more.
There's a lot of good humor in this movie that just gets overshadowed by the "this isn't the same Get Smart I used to know" sentiment.
Funny but disappopinting

"This is actually kind of a funny film but as a sequel to the classic series "Get Smart" it is really disappointing. I prefer to think of it as a dream and recommend you rent or buy the much better TV movie sequel "Get Smart Again" from 1989. This one is missing most of the original cast and it really hurts the film. By contrast, the 1989 TV movie has most of the cast and is a great and worthy sequel. FOX aired a 7 new episodes of Get Smart in 1995 with the original cast also, but these were not as good as the 1989 movie. I wush they would release them on video anyway. If you like Get Smart, see this but definately get "Get Smart Again!""
NOT The Return of Maxwell Smart

"I don't know who Don Adams was playing in this movie. It sure wasn't Maxwell Smart..more like Austin Powers. Would Max ever say stuff like, "I thought our female agents were young and willing to fool around a lot." None of the original writers or production stuff that created the brilliant original series were involved. Don Adams said that the funniest bits were stuff that was cut from the film. Very painful to watch...doesn't capture the feel of the original show at all. There was no humor whatsoever from the extremely dull KOAS actors. See Get Smart Again another time instead of this. That movie is much better and doesn't mention this movie, even in passing."
