    Will the upcoming Smurfs movie be just another dud?

    TV shows turned into movies generally are bad interpretations and don't live up to the original, will the Smurfs movie be another case like this?

    i certainly hope not! with Neil Patrick Harris in it, i think the movie will be pretty funny.. but remakes are mostly disappointing nowadays.lets keep our fingers crossed.

    The Smurfs were a dud right from being first unleashed on to an unsuspecting public, why should a film make them better, spin-offs are nearly always bad, making a film of a bad TV show won't make it better.

    Looks like it could be promising. Smurfs come to the big city. I wonder if any of them will be selling shrooms? Hollywood is in love with the 80's right now... only because the majority of people who go to the movies right now and/or have money to go to the movies right now and/or have little children who love to go to the movies are the 30 somethings who grew up in the 80's. I'll admit... I went and watched the A-team. Although it was nothing like the show, it kicked ass! As long as we spend money on tickets to relive our childhood, the studios could care less whether it's good or original. Making money is their only concern.

    I didn't even know there was going to be a Smurfs movie! I grew up watching those little blue guys, so I think it'll be great! However, I think they ruined  Garfield. The Chipmunks movies were ok, but then they grew on me. I'd be interested to see how they plan to do it.
