Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria and Jayma Mays star in Sony Pictures retelling of the children’s cartoon: The Smurfs. How does it stand the test of time in the “real” world?
I can't even believe it scored this well. Gahhh
2.5 is a good score? This is actually lower than I have seen.
I have yet to see a "good" review of this movie. Even the "good" reviews say a lot of negative things about it. I guess Alvin and the Chipmunks making bank made other companies think they could easily jump on board..
It was a movie that, whether inadvertently or not, was good for the 3-7 year old range. So they did nail some of their target market. No it wasn't great, but if kids enjoy it and they are the primary audience how can it be that terrible?
Because meanwhile adults are still able to enjoy other movies with kids as the primary target.
I understand that, and that is part of why it didn't get a higher score.
What is funny, I just got done watching 3 hours of the Smurfs on Boomerang. The cartoon was kind of crappy, so maybe the movie is not that far off. Remember the Smurflings and Big Mouth? That's what I got to watch today.
Did anyone honestly expect this to get a good score? Cheers hollywood for once again raping my fond childhood memories :(
