There are many clumsy characters because let's face it: Being human we are bound to mess up every now and then. We have all tripped while walking or knocked something over. Though you probably didn't accidentally start World War III. These people have gone the extra mile and deserve our praise. (And mocking scorn.) From clumsy Disney characters to Maxwell Smart, there are plenty of clumsy film characters, and they're all on this list!

Maxwell Smart works for CONTROL. Unfortunately, he mostly lacks it. The only thing keeping him on his feet are his shoes... that are also phones. A master spy, or a master of disaster? You decide.
