I think there's a paid version where they give you a $5 Starbucks gift card to help get through it.

Well, if they had a free alcoholic beverage, I think that would actually persuade me. What's Starbucks going to do but, hype you up so you can't sit still? LOL

Yeah, I don't have any children of my own so I don't have to see this one, thankfully. It looked really bad.

I was a big fan of the cartoon but, they didn't translate well to CGI. Sorry you had to waste some time and mula!

As a kid I never really got into them but did occasionally catch a TV show or two so wasn’t flying completely into the unknown like some of the more recent comic book characters that I have reviewed. Upon entering the world of the Smurfs we find the blue critters relaxing …

Star Rating:         Raja Gosnell’s 3D film adaptation of The Smurfs is interesting in that it actually improves some of the cartoon series’ more annoying elements. First and foremost, the filmmakers did not electronically alter the actors’ voices; in the original Hanna Barbara series, every Smurf sounded like a munchkin, in effect masking the vocal performances and the emotions they conveyed.
