Good-natured update of 1960s TV series with secret agent Maxwell Smart (a perfectly cast Steve Carell), alternately bungling and clever, and his partner, Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway), dispatched to Russia by their chief (Alan Arkin) to battle the evil KAOS crime syndicate boss (Terence Stamp). Director Peter Segal deftly balances action, comedy and sentiment, with quite a few pearly moments, but though the action sequences are never gory or the comedy gross or mean-spirited, the elements listed below are arguably still strong enough to preclude the youngest viewers. Much comic action violence including killings, light sexual references and innuendo, some crude language and crass expressions, a vulgar gesture and brief rear-male nudity; acceptable for older teens. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
