Overview and Review of Meet Dave Directed by Brian Robbins

A spaceship disguised like a human lands face first on Liberty Island. Its crew are made of intelligent, and unemotional aliens or beings who was looking for an orb that was sent from their planet to extract the oceans' salt, which will ruin Earth but will save their specie.

The orb is accidentally in the possession of Josh Morrison, the son of a single mom named Gina Morrison. The spaceship crew has 48 hours to recover the orb, and throw it in the Atlantic, and leave Earth. Over the course of two days, the ship's crew experiences chaos and emotion in New York. Does the Earth's giants - Josh and his mom - have anything to teach these brainy aliens?

It's an A-Ok entertaining movie.... :) Funny now and then. :) Good for families.

Overview and Review of Get Smart directed by Peter Segal

Maxwell Smart(Steve Carell), works for a Government spy agency. He used to be fat and since he wanted so much to be a field agent and pass it's accreditation he worked hard on his body and was made lean and fit for the job. But, apparently the Chief does not want to lose him in the "desk" since he is so good at it and it disappointed him. But, when the agency's head office is attacked, the Chief decides to assign Maxwell as a spy and partners him with sexy Agent 99(Anne Hathaway), much to her chagrin.

Entertaining and Smart's acting and lines are really funny for me (although others might find it korny). Hehe. :)

Funny Lines:

Agent 99: Max has no experience, and I don't want him as my partner.
Maxwell Smart: Well, that is a sucker punch to the gonads.

Maxwell Smart: I think it's only fair to warn you, this facility is surrounded by a highly trained team of 130 Black Op Snipers.
Siegfried: I don't believe you.
Maxwell Smart: Would you believe two dozen Delta Force Commandos?
Siegfried: No.
Maxwell Smart: How about Chuck Norris with a BB gun?

Agent 23: It's not over Max, I'll take that briefcase.
Maxwell Smart: If you want it, you'll have to take it.
Agent 23: [pause] That's what I just said!
Maxwell Smart: I know, I'm just trying to annoy you!
