In the age-old battle between cats and dogs, one crazed feline has taken things a paw too far.

Steven Russell began his life as a normal family with children and his wife, Debbie, and a job in the police force. To the outside world, it appears that he and Debbie are very much in love with each other; with friends of the family clearly wincing uncomfortably when Steven and Debbie begin kissing in front of them. It soon becomes apparent that Steven is simply a cop to find his birth mother; he successfully manages to locate her; however, she subsequently rejects him which sets off a train of events in Steven’s life. Steven then proceeds to crash his car. He is seriously injured and as he is being taken away on a stretcher, he tells the paramedics that he is going to become openly homosexual and states that he is going to tell his wife. We then see Steven living the ‘high life’ with his new boyfried, Jimmy, of whom he showers with expensive gifts. Jimmy, however, clearly uncomfortable with this. Steven then decides that his job is inadequate to fund his newly found ‘expensive gay lifestyle’, so he declines into criminal activity and eventually is put into prison for insurance fraud – but not before he puts himself into hospital and tries to escape by jumping off the hospital roof; Jimmy then tells Steven he doesn’t want to see him again. Once in prison, Steven meets shy and quiet Phillip Morris in the Law library. He tells him he is a Lawyer and gives him ‘legal’ advice about his sick friend. They then begin corresponding via letters when Morris is transferred over to the Michael Wing until, eventually, Steven gets himself transferred over to that wing of the prison and into the same cell as Morris. They continue their relationship inside the prison, blissfully happy, until Steven is then transferred to a different prison and then is released into the community. He then fraudlently claims himself to be a Lawyer and manages to secure Morris’s early release. They then move in together. Morris asks Steven, thinking he is a Lawyer, to help his friend out with a legal case. He wins this case, and clearly feels so empowered he applies and successfully gets a job as the finance manager with a top firm. He then embezzles the company out of thousands of dollars and is only found out with a colleague of his is reading over the accounts and notices the deficiency. He then attempts to run away with Morris, but Morris declines to leave and drives away, leaving Steven to face his fate alone. Steven then does not see Morris again until the end of the film; however, he tries (and is successful) in escaping from the jail many times; by stealing green marker pens and dying his prison outfit green posing as a nurse and other various surprisingly simple schemes. He is, however, quickly recovered after these schemes and returned to prison. He then attempts one final scheme – he forgives medical documents in order to fool doctors into thinking he has aids and eventually fakes his own death. Morris is then informed by his cell mate that Russell has died; however, 5 minutes after he was told, he was taken to meet his ‘lawyer'(Russell, posing as a Lawyer) and slaps him after realising that Russell faked his own death to get out of prison. The film then ends when one of the directors of the company he embezzled thousands of dollars from bumps into him into the court toilet (where the director was a juror) and he is then arrested whilst he was trying to secure Morris’s release. He is then given an unprecedented jail sentence.

Cameron James (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the new kid at Padua High School, is given a tour of the school by Michael Eckman (David Krumholtz), who is an audio-visual geek and former leader of a clique of future MBAs. Michael provides Cameron with information on the school’s various cliques. During the tour, Cameron spots the beautiful and popular Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik) and is immediately smitten with her. Michael warns that Bianca is shallow, conceited, and worst of all, not allowed to date. Michael does, however, inform Cameron that Bianca is looking for a French tutor.

At the Stratford residence, Bianca’s outcast older sister Kat (Julia Stiles) receives a letter of acceptance to Sarah Lawrence College. Her protective father, Walter (Larry Miller), is distraught by the news, as he wants Kat to attend college nearby. Kat distracts her father by revealing that Bianca was given a ride home from school by Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan). Bianca begs her father to allow her to date, but to no avail. Kat’s aversion to dating prompts the father to come up with a new rule: Bianca can only date if Kat is dating.

Cameron starts tutoring Bianca, and she informs him of her father’s rule after Cameron makes many failed attempts to ask her out. This news motivates Cameron and Michael to set out to find a boy who is willing to date Kat.

The next morning, Bianca thanks Kat for going to prom and the sisters make up. Kat’s father allows her to go to Sarah Lawrence. At school, Kat reads a poem which she wrote for English class, titled “10 Things I Hate About You” (written about Patrick). While reading the poem, she reveals (in front of the entire class) how hurt she was by what Patrick did and how much she really cares about him (“But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all”). Patrick is shown to be touched by her revelation. In the parking lot, Kat finds a guitar Patrick bought her with the money Joey paid him, and he admits that he messed up their deal by falling for her. Kat forgives Patrick and the two kiss and make up.

Maxwell Smart, an analyst for the top secret American intelligence agency CONTROL, yearns to become a field agent like his friend Agent 23 whom he idolizes. Despite scoring extremely well in the acceptance tests, Max is denied the promotion as the Chief of CONTROL feels that Max’s analytical skills are too valuable in his present assignment. This changes when CONTROL headquarters is attacked by its arch-enemy, the terrorist organization KAOS, led by a man known only as Siegfried. As a result, almost all of CONTROL’s agents’ identities are exposed, leaving only Max and Agent 99, whose recent plastic surgery has protected her identity, to pursue the culprits whilst former field operatives such as 23 are demoted to desk jobs. Max is promoted to field agent status with the codename Agent 86, but the experienced 99, viewing the naive and bumbling but overwhelmingly enthusiastic Max as an irritating encumbrance, is reluctant to partner with him.

After a series of mishaps while travelling on a commercial airliner, Max and 99 infiltrate Russia by parachute, hoping to trace KAOS’ recent acquisition of nuclear materials through its chief bombmaker, Krstic. Along the way, they are attacked by Dalip, a formidable henchman of Siegfried’s. Infiltrating a luxurious party hosted by Krstic, they trace the nuclear material (specifically Yellowcake uranium) to a KAOS nuclear weapons factory disguised as a Moscow bakery, but Max is forced to shoot Krstic when he and his men corner them. Infiltrating the bakery, Max meets with Siegfried and his second-in-command, Shtarker, only to learn that Siegfried was expecting him; a double agent has compromised his and 99’s identities. Max manages to escape capture and seal the weapons factory with explosives. During their escape, Max and 99 are confronted by Dalip; realizing that he knows Dalip through hours of listening to him on spy ‘chatter’, Max manages to persuade Dalip to spare their lives by giving him advice on how to repair his failing marriage. The Chief sends 23 to observe the clean-up of the factory, but KAOS manages to sneak the weapons out through the Moskva River, leaving 23 to report that only a bakery has been destroyed. Realizing that Max was alone during his key discoveries, CONTROL believe Max to be the double-agent; 99, who has been gradually falling in love with Max through their shared experiences, is heartbroken but takes Max into custody.

Subsequently, CONTROL becomes a laughing stock in the intelligence community, and their advice is disregarded when Siegfried transmits a threat to the United States government; pay him $200 billion or he will release the missile codes to rogue states. Whilst Max is in a CONTROL holding cell, Dalip sends him a coded message via the radio show American Top 40 revealing Siegfried’s plan; as a ‘demonstration’ he intends to detonate a nuclear device during the President’s visit to a concert performed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Max escapes from CONTROL and flies to Los Angeles to unite with the Chief, 99, and 23, who have flown out to persuade the President to take the KAOS threat seriously. Although 23 is skeptical, Max manages to convince 99 and the Chief that he is not the double agent. As KAOS plants the nuclear bomb in the concert hall, Max discovers trace amounts of radioactivity on Agent 23, exposing that he was lying about the bakery; revealed as the double agent, 23 takes 99 hostage and flees, forcing Max and the Chief to give pursuit. Managing to infiltrate 23’s car, Max rescues 99 and confronts 23, but in the struggle the car is set on fire and forced onto railroad tracks; 23 is killed when the car collides with a freight train. Realizing that the bomb will explode with the final notes of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”, Max, 99, and the Chief manage to reach the concert hall and tackle the conductor with seconds to spare, preventing the bomb from going off. During their escape, Siegfried insults Dalip once too often, previously threatening to kill his wife if he failed. Even though he has no intentions of killing her, he openly states that he would be “doing the sighted world a favor” if he did so. Finally having had enough, Dalip throws Siegfried out of their car over the side of a bridge in response. Max is hailed by the President as a hero, and walks off the stage heroically, with no one mentioning that there is a huge hole in his pants exposing his bare bottom, because it would ruin his moment. As CONTROL celebrates their success, he and 99 begin dating.
