Is what it is.
You will probably take away what you expect to from this movie. If you go into this movie expecting an awful movie not worthy of the title, then you will probably find plenty of scenes to support that. However, if you go into this movie expecting nothing more than something to entertain your children for an hour and a half, you won't be disappointed. This movie is purely for the kids, and mine really enjoyed it. It won't win any oscars, and no single kid will lose an ounce of sleep over that. It's not memorable, the writing is disappointing, the humor is simple, but the kids will laugh!!! It is what it is. For the record, a few parents walked out of the movie, and I do agree that the language was poor. I just didn't think it was bad enough to warrant walking out. I guess I expected them to ruin the smurfs, so in that, I wasn't shocked or disappointed. My kids made a few crude "smurf" comments after the movie, and I parented them. They stopped. If you dislike Looney Tunes because of violence, then you won't like this. The violence is no worse. It's slapstick.
