Watched it last night on BD and thought it was a really good effort. Carrell is excellent as Max of course and I found myself liking Anne Hathaway as 99 much more than I expected to. There weren't quite enough one-liners from the show in my opinion but a pretty good number of nods to the original overall. I'll be very interested to see if they make a sequel or not.

We watched it on DVD a couple of nights ago. I liked it better than I had anticipated I would. Carrell plays Max more as a "guy in over his head" rather than the always bumbling, self-centered Max of the TV series. So, his character is more likeable, if not quite as funny.

I agree. Much better than I thought it was going to be.

OK...you guys have talked me into at least renting it to see it now.

When it came out - it appeared just too lame from the previews.....but since I respect your opinions...I'll give it a try.

Any sign of Agent 13?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

No doubt about that one - but I can't think of anyone else that could pull it off as well as Carrell! As others have said they play him as more of a guy in over his head as opposed to basically incompetent as he was in the TV series. At first this bothered me but as the movie went on I appreciated it. The bit with Bill Murray in the tree cracked me up and made me wonder what was the last major film that Bill was in anyway??
