In the words of Sgt Hulka... "lighten up, Francis!".

At this point you've got 52 posts on this thread (more than half) bashing the movie in one way or another.

We get it... you don't like the idea. Chill...

Unsurprisingly, it comes from some French professor with probably nothing much better to do.

Having grown up with the cartoons and the comics (De Smurfen, in Dutch), I hope the movie won't be all too awful. Although reading the reactions here (and elsewhere on the net), that might be too much to ask .

This guy who wrote the article has way too much time on their hands .As for the smurfs movie ,go see when it comes out where you are .Don't read too much on what anybody says on the internet or a movie reviewer who does it for profit .If the smurfs interests you then go see it.I never read reviewers of what the so called pro's think my opinion is all that matters.I loved the smurfs movie .As much as I enjoyed the series.

I Love the tv series, but the smurfs movie sucks horribly.

Yes and it was garbage.

Maybe the cast of the smurfs movie got hallucinated after a screening of avatar and thought the screenplay had some similarity to it, how could you convince that is anything in this movie that anybody wants to see.

and Katy Perry deserves a razzie nomination.

Yeah, it must be bad...

Smurfs is tied with Cowboys & Aliens at the top of the box office this weekend AND it has a higher CinemaScore rating!

Too bad the movie still sucks horribly, doesn't mean anything.

Maybe some studio bigwig will get wise and next summer we'll have Cowboys & Smurfs.
