Absolute KAOS:Review for “Get Smart’s Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control” DVD

Posted on Updated on

One of my favorite summer films so far is Get Smart. It’s funny, action packed, and all together great. With great acting from Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson, and Alan Alda, it’s probably the funniest film this summer that not only you, but your kids can also enjoy. In a couple scenes, Masi Oka (Heroes) and Nate Torrence make appearances as the geeks behind the cool gadgets worthy of the 007 films. They play Bruce and Lloyd, respectively.   Bruce and Lloyd are working on an invisibility cloak. The cloak, of course, gets stolen. It is stolen by a voluptuous Maraguayan (well, I guess creativity is a plus) “agent”. She needs to rescue her father!!! Apparently, El Presidente captured him fifteen years ago and won’t let him go until he gets the cloak. Meanwhile, the nerds are trying to get dates and beat the CIA to the cloak. A bad excuse for a comedy spin off. The jokes mostly fall flat and the story is extremely predictable. Nate Torrence and Masi Oka manage to be moderately funny. The bland DVD features include a Behind the Scenes Doc on the Gadgets and on the Hair Removing Gadget and “Bruce and Lloyd’s Confessionals”.
