A Smurfs movie? Well, that's just ... nifty.
So now that Variety is reporting that a live action/animated feature film based on the popular little bastards is in the works from Columbia, well ... let's just say I'm having trouble stifling a yawn. Yes, I know it was a popular show, and that millions of adults who were indoctrinated with its pro-Marxist agenda as impressionable youths still remember it fondly, but I'm not getting very smurfed up over it.
However, I do think Paul Giamatti would make a kick-ass Gargamel.
Meanwhile, here's the theme song. Maybe someone can explain it to me.
