<I>The Smurfs</I>: This Movie Is So Smurfing Smurf That You’ll Leave Smurfing

The beauty of the Smurf "language" is that it is open to so much interpretation. One could translate the title either as: "This Movie Is So Freaking Great That You Leave Smiling" or "This Movie Is So Annoyingly Painful That You'll Leave Complaining" or any variation of those two. Though if you are over the age of eight, you'll probably find the latter interpretation to be the most accurate.

Are You Smurfing Me?

Are You Smurfing Me?

Ah, Smurfs. They're the little blue people who inadvertently gave children a new way to curse in front of their parents without getting into trouble. "Oh, smurf you!" "Yeah? Well, you're a smurfy smurfhole!" Now comes news from Variety that they're packing up their tiny suitcases and heading for Hollywood to star in a new big screen movie.

This won't be the first time the trousers-only Smurfs have cavorted in a movie. Originally a creation of cartoonist Pierre Culliford, they had their debut on the Belgian silver screen in 1965 with Les Aventures des Schtroumpfs. But it's the 1980s TV series from Hanna-Barbera that most people are probably familiar with today, and will, in all likelihood, be the major source material for the film.
