"This should be the standard for which all made for TV reunion movies should follow! "Get Smart, Again" aired on ABC in the early 90's to very high ratings with good reason, It's good! Would you believe, Great! Yes, Great!
CONTROL is back in business to fight the evil forces of KAOS!
The old gang is back Agent 86 (Don Adams), Agent 99 (Barbara Feldon), Hymie (Dick Gautier) to stop the sinister Sigfried (Bernie Kopell) Besides most of the original cast returning many of the series original creative team has returned. Leonard B. Stern, Mark Curtiss & Rod Ash wrote the script and Gary Nelson directed. The movie preserves all of the flavor of the comedy of the Get Smart series yet makes it contempoary enough for today's audiences something the makers of the dreadful 1980 feature film "The Nude Bomb" also starring Don Adams did not do!
The reason my rating is not 5 stars is because of the DVD itself!
The picture quality is very poor. The color is washed out, there is no sharpness or brightness every scene looks as if it were filmed through gauze! The DVD package says "Digitally Mastered" but mastered from what, a VHS tape? Don't let the poor quality of the DVD discourage you. The excellent quality of the movie, the script and all the performances are worth the price! A must have for all "Get Smart" fans! Until we get the complete orginal series on DVD or even a better print of "Get Smart, Again" this will have to do!"
Fans of the show will love this movie

"It's 1989, and the United States government finds itself being blackmailed by that evil organization KAOS. There's only one man that can foil the machinations of KAOS, and that is decommissioned agent 86, Maxwell Smart (played by Don Adams). Once Smart has rounded up all of the old CONTROL agents, he and his wacky crew are in pursuit of KAOS and their old nemesis Conrad Siegfried (Bernie Kopell). But, KAOS has a new and unknown "Mr. Big." Who is he, and what does he want? It is up to Max to get to the bottom of this tangled web!
Well, I must say, it was very nice to see this movie, with so many of the old Get Smart regulars! There's Max, Agent 99 (Barbara Feldon), Siegfried, Hymie (Richard Gautier), Larrabee (Robert Karvelas), Shtarker (King Moody), Agent 13 (the agent who's always hiding in things - David Ketchum), and even Max's car. As for the movie itself, I recognized a lot of the old jokes, but the show itself recycled them all so many times that it was just like old times.
My family and I enjoyed watching this movie, and I loved seeing the old CONTROL crew (minus the Chief, Edward Platt, who passed away in 1974). So, if you were a fan of the old 1965-70 American television show, "Get Smart," then you will love this move. My family and I highly recommend it to you.
Release the original Series Please!!!!

"This is a good movie but I have to echo others that have posted here. The series was perhaps the funniest series ever on tv."
Very good reunion film!

"This is absolutely the best "reunion" movie for a TV comedy I have ever seen. It features most of the original cast, and was written by the original writers. It really works as a sequel (something the 1980 film The Nude Bomb failed at) and is genuinely funny. Anyone who is considering making one of these reunions should wtch this one as a blue print of how to do it right. Later followed by 7 all new Get Smart episodes (aired on FOX in 1995)which were just OK. I would like to see these on video also. See also "the Nude Bomb""
