Is there only one joke in The Smurfs? We get it: the Smurfs use the word “Smurf” as a substitute for other words and that can be applied to swearing. And while I love Neil Patrick Harris, this looks like an absolutely terrible movie. But I’m not going to fly into a rage over it. I’ll just calmly acknowledge this movie wasn’t made for me but for gullible children and their nostalgic parents.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Smurfs:
When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours — in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
