Hey, want to watch something
silly? Sure you do; who doesn’t? Come on, it’s Friday; what else
are you going to do — work? The new trailer for Get Smart was released this week, and it’s
a veritable hodgepodge of silliness, courtesy Steve Carell
and Anne Hathaway.
Ah, the simple, fail-safe humor
of people running into walls. Works every single time. Anyone familiar
with the original 1960s small-screen show should know the film’s premise
already. The good agents of CONTROL are fighting the evil forces of
Leading the good fight are
Steve as the hapless Maxwell Smart and Anne as his cool, kicky partner
Agent 99. Hmm, flip that first “9” around and this could be a whole
different kind of movie. You know, sort of like this.
The trailer reminds me a of
a mashup of The Pink Panther, Austin Powers
and Mission: Impossible. But what I really want to talk about
are the many outfits of Anne.
Catholic schoolgirl Anne:
Dancing With the Stars Anne:
So, which is your favorite?
I’m partial to Catholic schoolgirl Anne. But then, girls in ties are kind of my thing. And, oh yeah,
what do you think of the trailer? Good silly, or just silly silly?
Or, this being a Friday, is there even a difference?
And one more thing, did they
just hire actors from NBC shows for this film or what? Steve from
The Office, Masi Oka from Heroes and Nate Torrence
from Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Now if Tina Fey
pops up, too, I am so there.
