For Father’s Day, Guitar Hero arranged for Gizmo Guy (and by default, me) to have a “dinner and a movie” night out. Originally he’d figured we’d go on Father’s Day itself, but since Gizmo Guy wasn’t feeling up to par then, we delayed it to yesterday. So yesterday we went to see Get Smart.

Now we’re both of the age when we watched that show in first runs. Back in the day when a phone being disguised as a shoe, and was portable, was stuff straight out of James Bond. But I was hesitant about going to the movie. I could only take so much of Don Adams – he could be incredibly grating in his delivery, and since I’m not a huge fan of Steve Carell I was worried we were in for two hours of smarm or a really bad take off. But Gizmo Guy and I both thoroughly enjoyed this version of Get Smart. And one of the reasons I enjoyed it was because of the eye candy they threw my way.

*satisfied sigh* Dwayne Johnson. The Rock himself. He’s got a self-effacing humor, he seems to be really composed and intelligent, and Whoa mama, he is one good looking man. And as I was watching him, and trying not to drool, I thought – Hey, he’s just like Sam. 6’4 (or 6’5 according to who you’re reading), approximately the right weight, and … those pecs, that chest …. that …

Oh, yeah, right, I’m supposed to be writing about my date with Gizmo Guy, not fantasizing. All righty. The movie was funny, and dinner was wonderful. It was nice to have a night out just the two of us.

    You are not kidding, some of my favorite eye candy. I get everything he’s in. And how apt that he is so similar to Sam in build and maybe personality?

    I think it’s time we had a date night!

    I want to see Get Smart.

    I didn’t think anyone could be better than the original (The inspector Gadget voice guy). I can’t remember his name, but I love Steve Carrell!

    Mm, nice eye candy. ^_^

    You know something, I’m probably the last person on the planet to find out about the Get Smart movie. Honestly. I didn’t know there was a movie until yesterday! I saw a picture of actress Anne Hathaway, and said she was from the movie. I really need to poke my head up more often.

    Eye candy INDEED!
    You know, I always thought Mr. Rock would be ideal to play one of the Black Dagger Brothers — would there ever be a movie made…
    What do you think? šŸ˜‰

    My husband is very special, because he actually helps me hunt down stuff on whatever actor I’m using as inspiration. Though I’m sure he saves his eye-rolling for when I’m not looking.

    The Rock is definitely someone I love to both look at and listen to – his sense of humor is hilarious.

    Oh baby, great eye candy!!

    I love the Rock, Dwayne Johnson. He is really funny and seems incredibly smart. Yesterday we watched the Game Plan with my daughter and she fell in love with him because he sings like Elvis.

    I’ve already been to see Get Smart as well – you know I’m such a fan of the old classic TV series. *wink*wink*. *ahem*

    As far as I’m concerned, Dwayne Johnson can play anything he wants to, as long as I get to watch. He is a tremendous pack of eye-candy, but I love that he has a brain and humor as well. What an incredible package.

    and, yes Leah, I agree he’d make an ideal Sam.
