As you know, I generally don’t care what anyone else thinks when it comes to certain movies. And Get Smart, the big screen adaptation of the 1960s classic TV show, is one of those films. On top of being a huge fan of Steve Carell — I even liked Dan in Real Life, a lot — I am also a fan of director Peter Segal (Tommy Boy) and of the rest of the cast, which includes Anne Hathaway, Dwayne (Please, don’t call me “The Rock) Johnson, Alan Arkin and Terrence Stamp. The pieces are in place, the source material is a proven winner and I think that if audiences can get past some of the silliness, they will see that Get Smart has a lot of potential. I mean, it is based on characters by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry — last time I checked, they’ve done some good stuff.
In order to assist you in getting yourself into the Get Smart mood, WB has released the following five TV spots. The film itself will be in theaters on June 20th. Enjoy!
