I will be the first to admit that I had almost lost faith in director Peter Segal’s (Tommy Boy) upcoming action comedy adaptation Get Smart, which is based on a television show from the 1960s. When I interviewed Pete Segal at Comic Con last year, I was all jazzed for this film. What a premise, right? Steve Carell as Maxwell Smart, the sexy Anne Hathaway as Agent 99, Alan Arkin and all his brilliance as the Chief and even Terrence Stamp (“Kneel Before Zod!”) as the leader of Kaos. I was in.

Then the teaser and the first full trailer were released online, and my hopes were deflated. It looked cheesy, over-the-top and way too goofy. I thought that I was doomed to be disappointed. But now, as you will see from the trailer below, my enthusiasm for this film has been re-inflated. This new domestic trailer has some great action, some funny moments and well, Anne Hathaway in her underwear (pay close attention.)
