New Get Smart Trailer Is Actually Funny

Published 7 years ago by

get smart trailer2 New Get Smart Trailer Is Actually FunnyNow I don’t know what the heck happened with the first trailer for Get Smart, starring two very funny people: Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway, but I thought it was drop dead not funny. Not even a slight grin crossed my lips while watching it and I thought the movie was going to be a HUGE misfire.

So imagine my surprise when at WonderCon I had the chance to see the second trailer for the film and the damned thing was funny from start to finish.

Now you can see for yourselves right here.

So… funny? Not so much? What do you think?

Get Smart opens on June 20, 2008.

  1. Looking forward to this. I remember watching the show on Nickelodeon years ago.

  2. Two things will dictate the success of this film: The consistency of the writing (which is hard to judge from a trailer) and the sincerity with which the actors take their roles. If there’s any hint of an actor being self-aware, the jokes will fall flat.

    Fortunately for the latter you can get a good hint of this from the trailer as all the actors seem to buy into their roles with no hint of irony (no winks or nods).

    And yes, I was in stitches for most of the trailer myself.

    Count me marginally optimistic.

  3. I grew up on and worshiped this series. I can think of no other actor suited for the role of Agents 86 and 99. Impressive trailer and the guest roles are perfect. I imagined Siegfried as a bit kookier but I think this might work the way he is in this film.

    I’ll GET SMART as soon as I dumb up a bit.

  4. Huge fan of Get Smart even paid big bucks for the complete series on dvd.
    However from what I’ve read on ( I am still very skeptical of the film.
    I’ve read the outline of the script and it didn’t really blow me away. It really blew actually.
    There’s alot of info on this film at that site.

  5. Surpising entertaining. Thank you, Vic for the great title on this article. Had no interest whatsoever to view anything on this film (personally hated the television series).
    Now I may have to see this one with my wife.

  6. I may have to check this out. Probably a matinee on a boring, rainy day. I loved the original series (watched it on re-runs in the 70′s) and I think Steve Carrell is the perfect guy for the part. Let’s just hope they pull this off.

  7. Not that impressed, actually the only part that made me smile was the last joke with the lady and the kid in the car. You know that gag is a one-off. I have a bad sense of humor tho
