GET SMART’S BRUCE AND LLOYD OUT OF CONTROL is a spin-off of the GET SMART movie that was originally released on DVD to coincide with the theatrical release of the GET SMART movie. The movie takes place concurrently with the events of the GET SMART movie and there are a few cameos from stars of GET SMART, including Anne Hathaway.
Bruce (Masi Oka) and Lloyd (Nate Torrence) are two guys who work in the Research and Development department of CONTROL. They’ve been working on a top secret device: an invisibility cloak. During a wild party (in which KAOS attacks CONTROL), their invisibility cloak is stolen by a female spy from Maraguay who intends to sell the cloak to KAOS. With the only non-compromised agents (Smart/86 and 99) already in the field, Bruce and Lloyd have to leave the confines of CONTROL and get the invisibility cloak back before it’s sold to KAOS.
It should be noted that Jayma Mays is also featured in the movie as Bruce’s love interest. I’m a big fan of hers and seeing her in the movie made it that much more enjoyable for me.
The DVD has a few extras including the “Control Confessionals” featurette which has the characters of the movie talking into a camera, ala reality tv style. There’s also a “real science” featurette about the actual science behind some of the movie’s gadgets. Lastly, there are some trailers.
GET SMART’S BRUCE AND LLOYD OUT OF CONTROL isn’t a gut-busting knee-slapper. However, it does provide some good laughs and is entertaining. It’s provides a nice additional sub-story to the main story of the GET SMART movie.
