If you’re wondering what Alvin and the Chipmunks would be like if the chipmunks were blue and were chased around by an ugly wizard and his cat, then stop using your imagination and watch the horrible trailer above. It’s for Sony‘s The Smurfs, it will be showing in Mand-O-Tory 3D, and it looks smurfing awful. There are jokes about Smurf butts, jokes about Smurfs burping, jokes about Smurfs farting – and those were the highlights of the trailer. The highlights.
I feel bad for Neil Patrick Harris, who looks like he’s playing the role of Non-Threatening Anxious Caretaker Of Kooky Talking Creatures. We saw the exact same character in Alvin and the Chipmunks and Yogi Bear. Wait, if they’re all the same character, does that mean their universes tie together? Will there be a CG movie starring The Smurfs Yogi Bear and Alvin and the Chipmunks? Okay, now I’ve just Smurfed myself. In terror.
Smurfing into a smurf smurf shitty smurf theater shit-smurf August 3rd. (Deadline)
