Oh no. Oh no no no no no. This is... this is bad.

So on the one hand, this Smurfs movie is all animation, so we’ve been saved from having to look at Hank Azaria as Gargamel. That was a make up and costume job that I remember every so often, and it causes me to shudder violently. Like a ghost put his hand on my shoulder and whispered, “Hey, remember Hank Azaria in Smurfs?” into my ear.

On the other hand, this trailer contains a) a pun on “shade,” b) a wooden Segway, and c) makes a big point of how every Smurf, save Smurfette, is a “dude.” That means the Lost Village is all women, doesn’t? IS THIS A MOVIE ABOUT A BUNCH OF SMURFS TRYING TO FIND A PLACE TO GET LAID?
