So...Roger Moore gives a poor review to a well-received movie per Rotten Tomatoes (Get Smart)...and a good review to a trash movie (Love Guru) per RT. Seems to be the trend with this chap.

I've learned to do pretty much the opposite of whatever Roger recommends.

I think Roger Moore missed the content of the movie. He forgot to mentioned when the audiance clapped during oe sceen. I suggest this provides a lot of humor.
This is a winner.
I suggest that people go to this movie.

Don Adams died in 2005.

Im with the rest of the group that says do the opposite of what Roger says. I saw this movie and thought it was great. It was full of laughs and it kept you in your seat. So yet again i think Roger missed the mark on this one.

Better look over the Yahoo movies website first. The critics crapped all over this, except for Roger Ebert. Hate to see you waste $42.

Instead of the same title of the same name, how about 'Get a Clue'?

Anything this "better than everyone else" critic hates, usually turns out to be pretty good.
He's always been one to "thoughtfully critique" Adam Sandler's acting ability. Adam Sandler blew it off by saying "Hey, I'm a comedian, not an academy award nominee. My movies are funny and you're not!"
I give the same credence to the Sentinel restaurant critics and their attitude on food. Usually, if you try the place they hate, its really good.

Does anyone actually pay attention to these so called movie critics. Every time they had said something was terrible. I went and saw it and it turned out to be excellent.

When I can tell it is a chick flick I always see that he gives it excellent review.

You can usually tell if a movie will be a flop like Epic movie

Saw it this afternoon and the audience laughed throughout the film. Great gags, great slapstick, and just an overall feel-good comedy. This was a fine tribute to the "Get Smart" TV show.

Not sure which movie Roger watched...

I liked it. My family liked it. The audience giggled every few minutes and had belly laughs at least a few times. Go see it.

Have you ever seen Roger Ebert laugh about anything? He's a dolt.

Just saw it and still have tear tracks from laughing. I have just one word to say about this movie - It's Great!

As for Critic Moore, he gave himself away when he panned the TV show in passing. If you didn't like the original, you'll only like a spoof that shreds it. This is an homage to one of the funniest shows ever.

Roger Moore is clearly an immature, sophomoric lightweight to rate Zohan over Get Smart. Zohan is a vulgar boorish piece of trash that relies on the same old crude sex jokes that only appeal to the childish, while Get Smart had some of the truly funniest scenes I've seen in years. Brilliant writing, directing, and comedic acting. Great comedy! I now will rely on Moore's reviews: whatever he likes must be stupid and whatever he doesn't must be Smart.

Let's see, Roger Moore, critic for one of the worst newspapers in the U.S. slams "Get Smart." Roger Ebert gives it a positive review...hmmmmmm I wonder who's opinion I value more.

Does anyone here really take the advice of a Slantinel critic? I don't think so.....

I saw it and I didnt expect much, so was pleasantly surprised to find myself laughing my ass off. I really enjoyed it. I think Roger is way off.

Ignore this review and check it out!
