    This is a film that transcends "good" or "bad," "like" or "don't like."

It uses celebrity clout (Katy Perry, I'm looking at you) to sell tickets instead of actually putting work into the things that matter in a film like clever jokes and character development. Instead, a joke that featured heavily in the film was the - take a word and replace it with 'smurf' - gag which made me want to gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon. Sure, it was a big part of the TV show as well, but we as a culture have moved on from that kind of entertainment. Overall, this movie met my expectations - very low quality flick produced solely to entertain little kids and give stressed parents a break from their little demons. Full Review »

The last time these guys were good was back in the 70s and 80s. There is no point in resurrecting these characters and then just completely ruin what made the old cartoon great. Full Review »
