Smurf Movie – unofficial SHA reaction

I’m sure a lot of folks are wondering what I think about the news of a Smurf movie in the works.

After all, in the seventh grade I was a co-founder of the Smurf Haters of America.

But I think I’ve mellowed out a bit. Wasn’t my dislike of the Smurfs really just a cheap ploy to get attention by being contrary to the prevailing tastes of my peers? I mean they’re really kind of loveable aren’t they? And at 12 years old, I was hardly the target audience. What was I doing watching cartoons anyway? Why wasn’t I out picking up rocks in the yard? (That was one of my parent’s favorite tasks for me. We had a large yard with a near infinite supply of rocks.)

  1. Loveable? No. You were right to hate them.

  2. I can’t think of Smurfs now without remember Jake Gyllenhaal’s rant in “Donnie Darko.”
