Two high profile comedies are facing off this weekend in theaters, pitting two cinematic spies -- the new Maxwell Smart and the former Austin Powers -- against each other for box office supremacy:
- Steve Carell dons the shoe phone of the late Don Adams for another big screen take (remember The Nude Bomb?) of the 60's TV comedy classic Get Smart. Anne Hathaway, Alan Arkin and Dwayne Johnson join him in the fight against KAOS, led by Terence Stamp.
- After a long absence onscreen, Mike Myers trots out a new character with The Love Guru. Jessica Alba, Verne Troyer and a Speedo-ed Justin Timberlake also star in what is already being "hailed" as the worst movie of the year.
- And hoping to catch some of the family audience between Kung Fu Panda and next week's WALL-E is Kit Kittredge: An American Girl. Little Abigail Breslin stars as the title moppet, based on the popular line of dolls; Julia Ormond and Chris O'Donnell play her parents, and the cast (under the direction of Patricia Rozema) also includes Jane Krakowski, Joan Cusack and Stanley Tucci.
