As a parent of a very young girl, I have no intention of taking my child to see this tripe -- Just as I have judiciously avoided exposing her to the source toys from that other insidious "prepubescent chick flick," Bratz...  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: FYI -- We actually nominated BRATZ for multiple dis-honors in 2007, including Worst Picture (LINK)...

I don't know guys. I mean, yeah, it seems like it'll be an unfunny movie. But I didn't get the feeling it would set a bad example. JUDY MOODY just seems to want a fun summer, and it's not like she'll whine if she doesn't get what she wants...like in most movies of this kind.

This is the fifth family film to hit Razzie standards in 2011.  First, there was 'Gnomeo and Juliet', the overpromoted Shakespeare/Toy Story ripoff; then we had 'Mars Needs Moms', the Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius ripoff that bombed at the box office; next came 'Hop', the disgusting Easter movie; followed by 'Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil', the sequel to an animated film most of us didn't like; and now we have this turkey.  The worse news is that later this year, we have to deal with more potential family film disasters: 'Mr. Popper's Penguins', 'Monte Carlo', 'Zookeeper', 'Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World', and 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked'.  

This influx may raise demand to bring back the Razzie category, 'Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment'.

If it's as screamy as it says it is, then the cinemas better provide the poor souls who go to see this with ear plugs -- otherwise the entire theater will end up sounding like a medieval torture chamber.
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

I would personally also add The Smurfs to the list of "potential family film disasters" for 2011, but maybe that's just me...

R.T. gives it 17%: "Though it may entertain some very young viewers, it's likely to be a garish sensory onslaught for anyone with a normal attention span."  

Roger Ebert
(**/****) said:"
A film that little kids might find perfectly acceptable.Little, little, little kids."  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Earlier today, it got as low as 13%, putting it well within RAZZ-ing range...

Some sources do say that Smurfs is a family film, but based on what I've seen, I don't think it's being aimed at families.  There were quite a few adult jokes in the trailers.

I agree. It's not so much the Smurfs as it is a bad wannabe "Alvin & The Chipmunks" meets "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" -- I mean, do they really have to go to NYC? What's up with that?

Who else could the audience be for the Smurfs film? Easily amused slow-witted people?

Those are the 2 new fads with family movies:
1)Having the title rhyme:If it's catchy,more people will see it.Although they tend to flop.
2)Having the characters go to a big city,specially New York or Hollywood.

The biggest mistake is opening it up against Super 8, which is the most likely to take the #1 spot at the box office. And we all know how superior Super 8 is, right?
You think you know, but you have no idea.

I assume the "audience" for Smurfs includes adults who are familiar with the TV series and/or comic books...

I grew up with both the TV series and the comic books, but that doesn't mean that I am willing to pay money for a movie version....  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: My two cents -- I've alwaze found THE SMURFS to be as obnoxiously "cute" and grating as the CHIPMUNKS (whose inexplicable box office success this film aims at ripping off). And I fully expect the "new" SMURFS movie to live down to the standard set by previous incarnations of this woeful material. For whichever weekend it's set for release, it at least has a shot at being my Worst of the Weak pick...

My advice for you on 'The Smurfs' is, 'If you have kids (12 or under), don't bring them.  Some of the material might not be appropriate for them.'  And another thing: If not enough Razzie members see it, then it may get overlooked on the nominating ballot.  That may have contributed to 'Furry Vengeance' and 'Yogi Bear' missing the cut last year.
