Excellent rework of the 60's series.

We are often disappointed when a 'classic' is reworked for for a 'modern audience'. I was very surprised by how well elements of the old series were knitted in to the plot of this movie. The original series was a spoof on James Bond/Man from Uncle etc and often got quite silly, thankfully the screen writers did not let sillyness get too out of hand so new viewers and fans of the original will enjoy this thoroughly with plenty of good action and worthy homages.
A few laugh out loud moments

We enjoyed this in the cinema so were looking forward to seeing it again. If you like Steve Carrel he's particularly funny in this one. I laughed out loud many times in this movie which to me, is a rare occurance with modern comedies. If you're looking for silly light hearted movie then this is very entertaining.
Funny and Watchable

Sit back, relax and have a good laugh. Fans of the original series will also like it. There are plenty of visual jokes. It certainly appeared from the film that the cast enjoyed themselves.
Not So Smart

I only rented this as I was a fan of the original series years ago but this unfortunately is terrible...very poor from the start and cant really think of anything good to say about it.
Easy, but not too smart.

Funny, easy to watch film. Carell & Hathaway do a good job. The plot is predictable, and is left open for a sequel.
