So Dan Fellman, the head of WB studio distribution is in essance saying that those under 25, are too stupid to appreciate funny "crisp verbal comedy" and will only like a movie emphasising action? And none of those under 25 could possibly be fans of the tv show that is and has been in reruns on the likes of Nick at Nite and TV Land forever...

Steve Carell's huge hit, The 40 Year Old Virgin, was exactly all verbal comedy and very little if any "action". What a stupid decision. Get Smart could have been so much better if they just let Mel Brooks have more to do with it creatively. Bring in writers that can write.

huh.
