Instead of this high-falutin' fare, I saw "Get Smart" with the last of the AMC coupons (more are on the way).

As a kid, I loved "Get Smart." I haven't watched the TV show recently, so don't know if it aged well. The movie trailer did capture some of that atmosphere. But the movie? I guess I wanted something laugh-a-minute like "Airplane" and this wasn't. It was pretty good, silly at times, used all the tag lines - but just didn't seem completely goofy like the show. I liked the techie guys and see they have a DVD spin-off which I'll have to check out.
