10. Get smart 2: Pushed back from T.B.A. 2011, to T.B.A. 2012.
Maxwell, a comic copy of James Bond, is back with more hilarious action. (I came up with that myself because there’s absolutely no information on the net about the plot or script. Either the producers are keeping their secret smash-hit under tight wraps, or they haven’t come up with a confirmed script yet. I sure hope T.B.A. 2012 won’t be pushed to T.B.A. 2013.)
