I used to watch The Smurfs when I was a kid, I loved it, I hated missing an episode, but damn... there is nothing about this new movie adaptation that makes me want to see it. It looks like it's running on four cylinder's of awfulness. I just have to remind myself that this movie is for the kiddies, and not for me, but I still won't take my kids to see it.
