Absolutely hated it! Before seeing the film, I hated that the Smurfs were even being made into a live action film. Was this really needed or necessary? Which movie exec said, “You know what we need, a Smurfs movie!”. No, we didn’t, and we especially did not need them to arrive in New York City.
I hated the way the smurfs looked, acted, and I hated their voices each time one of them failed to be cute or clever. Furthermore, watching Neal Patrick Harris play a doting husband and expectant father was a joke. The man is openly gay, and yes I know he’s an actor, but I could never get over it and he wasn’t convincing.
This movie was stupid, very stupid, and seeing it in 3D was not a plus. There were only a few scenes where outstanding 3D imagery came into play. The kids will love this because they don’t know any better, but you will be begging for it to be over long before the credits roll.
PS: Gargamel sucks too!
