I’ve noticed that all the films I’ve seen in the last few years have some nostalgic value. TransformersIndiana JonesGet Smart… I don’t bother to see films with all-new material any more. If it wasn’t around before I was ten years old, I just don’t care.

Tonight I saw Get Smart. On the up side, it could have been worse. On the down side, it could have been better. I liked some of the early banter between 86 and 99, and some of the music was unexpectedly nice. Unfortunately a good half of the jokes were based around the sort of bodily functions that could never even have been alluded to in the original series.
