Any Smurf fans out there? I know my cousins loved watching the Smurfs as kids. Right now Amazon has The Smurfs (the movie) available as one of their instant video rentals for $1.99.
MY MOVIE REVIEW:
I had a chance to see this movie when it was playing in the theater this summer. Imagine getting to see how the Smurfs live but then imagine humans also interacting with them. It is amazing what they can do with computer graphics (but I'm probably starting to show my age so I'll get back to the review). I enjoyed watching this movie with my nephews. I like the actors Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays (of Glee), so seeing them interacting with the Smurfs was a lot of fun. Watching the Smurfs get into things around their apartment was entertaining and seeing the Smurfs make their way around New York City was an adventure. This movie might just have you seeing Smurf blue -- and that's a good thing.
Spoiler alert: There is "cartoon type" violence. For instance Gargamel (human) is hit by a bus and is just a little squished against the windshield but not seriously injured. Some dialogue is a bit risque but even some of that is included in the movie trailers.
I've noticed that these rock bottom rental prices don't always last very long. As best I can tell it looks like this price is good through this weekend and will end on Monday, January 2, 2012. If you are interested I would get it soon. You have 30 days to start your rental after you purchase it. Once you start it you have 48 hours to finish watching it.
