Get Smart is a 2008 American spy-fi comedy film based on Mel Brooks and Buck Henry's 1960s spy parody television series of the same name. The film stars Steve Carell as Maxwell Smart and Anne Hathaway as Agent 99.
Maxwell "Max" Smart (Steve Carell), an analyst for the top secret American intelligence agency CONTROL, yearns to become a field agent like his idol Agent 23 (Dwayne Johnson). Despite scoring extremely well in the acceptance tests, Max is denied the promotion as the Chief (Alan Arkin) of CONTROL feels that Max's analytical skills are best used for his present assignment. When CONTROL headquarters is attacked by the terrorist organization KAOS, led by Siegfried (Terence Stamp) in retaliation for CONTROL's infiltration of KAOS, almost all of CONTROL's agents' identities are exposed, leaving only Max and Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway), whose recent plastic surgery has protected her identity, to pursue the culprits whilst former field operatives such as 23 are demoted to desk jobs. Max is promoted to field agent as Agent 86, but the experienced 99, who views the bumbling but enthusiastic Max as an irritating encumbrance, is reluctant to partner him. Before he leaves HQ, two of Max's friends and lab men give him an unusual Swiss Army Knife which not only has the standard equipment, it also comes with a flamethrower and a crossbow that fires harpoons.
