I watched this on Global Smurfs Day, and just couldn't stop thinking about how much that movie is going to suck.
I recently did an experiment to see if I could survive the top 50 highest grossing films of 2009 in 10 days... This was on of the first films I watched, maybe the 5th or so. It drained my soul like a vampire who feeds on optimism and left me for dead. I couldn't stand it. It was horrible in almsot every way a film could be horrible. Sure it's for kids, but I couldn't believe this dreck. It was so awkward and uncomfortable. Sure the CGI is top notch but everything about this film is excess. I actually ended up comparing it to the film Anti-Christ in that they both push the envelope as far as they can to see if the audience will stick with it to the end and leave them discussing it for weeks afterwards. The difference is one is beautifully shot and amazing, worth visiting and sharing with your friends (if they can stomach it). The other is a piece of mindly garbage that assaults your senses for 90 minutes straight and chips away at your very being. I couldn't imagine why they'd hire big name actors to play the chipmunk leads when you can't tell who's who. That's the very definition of excess. UGH dreck.
