    Okay, how funny would it be to see Johnny English team up with Max Smart? I mean, the two movies Johnny English and Get Smart are so similar, I just picture the two of them working together. I think it would be a hilarious movie.

    What do you think? After all, they've done Freddie Vs Jason, and Alien Vs Predator. So why not combine Get Smart with Johnny English? :D

    To be honest, the audience just isn't that sophisticated.

    Plus British humor and American humor tend to go in different directions. Personally, I think idea has potential, but it could end up being two hilarious leading names fighting for screen time and it could end up just being stupid.

    Not sure this could be a winner.

    The other major problem being that the one true Maxwell Smart, Don Adams, is long passed away. I know Steve Carell was in the remake, but I watched and all I got from it was a desire to punch Carell in the face and stomp a box of kittens....

    ....but since Fluttershy would get angry at me, I'll settle for punching Steve Carrell in the face. Hard.

    Yeah Don Adams had much better comedic timing than Steve Carrel. He was very convincing that he really was that stupid and believed all the things he was saying.

    Anyone who was both Maxwell Smart and Inspector Gadget was obviously awesome. Don Adams wins.
