WHAT IS IT?
It's the live-action kids movie The Smurfs, based on the popular blue creations of Peyo. The comic strip and cartoon characters were brought to the big screen via the use of CGI to appear alongside non-computer generated actors Hank Azaria and Neil Patrick Harris. The film was aimed squarely at the 'children's' market and despite poor reviews it raked in the cash and was a big Smurfing box-office hit!
GOOD IDEA/BAD IDEA:
Love them or hate them there's no knocking the popularity of the Smurfs and so it was inevitable that they would make it to the big screen one day. It was also no surprise that when they did become movie stars in 2011 it was in a film designed to appeal mostly to kids.
That said, the Smurfs movie was still a big bag of Smurferty Smurfing shite.
The CGI work was pretty impressive and Hank Azaria gave a great performance as chief villain Gargamel, but jeez the film was so boring. Nothing really interesting happened, scenes were dragged out beyond belief and the constant use of the word 'Smurf' to describe anything and everything became tedious very quickly.
As for the story, the Smurfs were transported to New York, where chaos quickly followed, and then they buggered off back to Smurfville, Hell, or wherever it was they originated from just to sleep with Smurfette...
In a magical land where incest clearly isn't an issue, countless male Smurfs mate with the ONLY female Smurf in existence to produce more male Smurfs.... so that the new male Smurfs can continue to mate with their own mother!!!
No one seems to have a problem with this, not even Smurfette, who as the only female Smurf seems to relish in all the male attention (the slut).
Soon the evil wizard Gargamel catches wind of the sexual shenanigans down at Smurfville and so decides he wants to get in on the action, by trying it on with Smurfette.
Sadly for Gargamel, despite the fact that Smurfette is easier to bang than a toy drum, she just isn't interested in the old perv and he's quickly given the brush off.
Pissed off and horny Gargamel smashes up the Smurfs village in a sexually frustrated rage, which causes the Smurfs to run deep into the forest to escape. In the forest they find a magical portal that transports them to New York, where they escape the clutches of Gargamel.
However as he's still horny Gargamel and his not-so-horny cat Azrael follow the Smurfs to New York, where the wizard hopes that in new location with a different zip code Smurfette might be up for a quick fumble. Or at least a tit wank.
...in New York the Smurfs meet Miss Pillsbury from Glee and Neil Patrick Harris. The Smurfs then screw up their lives for around an hour before they all get horny and take it in turns to screw Smurfette.
From this point on Papa Smurf and Co do some Smurfing, Smurfy, Smurf. A bit of Smurferty, Smurfable, Smurfing and just a little Smurfy Smurfing....
...but not quite enough to get Smurfette up the Smurf!
After much Smurfing an exhausted Smurfette tells the other Smurfs to give it a rest and so they concentrate their time on finding a way home.
