here are many things that one must do to have a happy and productive life. Avoiding this movie is one of them. If you must torture yourself, there are easier ways. For example, you can remove your toenails with a set of pliers or you can (if you are a man) emasculate yourself. All in all, I am simply saying that this movie is from the pits of hell.
In all fairness, this movie was made ahead of its time. That is, it was based upon the TV series, "Get Smart". Only recently have we been graced by other such works of "art" ("The Brady Bunch Movie" and "The Flintstones"). I hear that the "The A-Team" will become a movie in 1999… oh joy!
Okay, I suppose a brief synopsis is in order (forgive me). Maxwell Smart, played by Don Adams (voice for Inspector Gadget), is called upon to save the world from a horror beyond belief… its own nudity. EGAD! Yes, it is up to the hero to foil the ploy of the accursed evil doers. Stupidity ensues. There is a high speed chase scene between a car and a desk. That is funny, isn't it? Maxwell Smart is told that he doesn't look like his thumb… that is actually the funniest part in the movie.
The antagonist, a scary villain that likes to wear colored panty hose upon his head, is played by Vittorio Gassman ("Sleepers", "Sharky's Machine"). Did I say scary? Oops. I meant idiotic.
Well, this review has been overly kind to the film. After all, this film was nominated for the "Razzie Award" for worst picture in 1981.
