Go-go gadget script rewrite! The popular cartoon character goes live-action with Broderick in the title role. Blown to pieces by the evil Dr. Claw (Everett), a naive security guard is put back together by scientist Brenda Bradford (Fisher) with a vast array of grafted-on gizmos. Gadget becomes the world's top detective and discovers that Claw also murdered Brenda's father. In his battle against Claw, he is forced to fight his evil robot twin in order to clear his own name. The computer generated effects are eye-catching but far too brief, and Broderick is forced to react lamely to them most of the time.

John Brown (Matthew Broderick) is a security guard for a science lab and likes the robotics expert Brenda Bradford (Joely Fisher) who runs the lab. One day an evil man named Sanford Scolex (Rupert Everett), breaks into the lab to steal equipment, and while John is in an intense car chase in his Chevette to retrive the stolen equipment, is blown up by Scolex. Brenda immediately rescues him and he is put back together with electronic parts and this is how he got his nickname, Inspector Gadget. Meanwhile, Scolex got his hand crushed during the chase when John's bowling ball flew out his window and into Scolex's car, so he got a new robotic claw to replace his hand and now goes by the name Dr. Claw who is now on a mission to frame Inspector Gadget and destroy his control chip. This 1999 film is a good movie and you'll love seeing the gadget mobile in full pursuit of the villians.
