My child had a lot to say about the Smurfs movie that we just watched yesterday so I decided I’ve give her Smurfs movie review its very own blog day. So, if you’re wondering if the Smurfs movie is any good for young children, you may find your answer here. For the record, what I did was ask her a series of questions. I put her answers verbatim in quotations so you get a real sense of what she’s thinking about the Smurfs movie. This is what my child had to say about the Smurfs movie:
Q: What can you tell me about the Smurfs movie?
A: “The movie is about Gargamel wants to get the Smurfs power and the Smurfs are going to fight Gargamel and then they end up at somebody’s house.”
Q: What’s your favourite part about the Smurfs movie?
A: “When the Smurf fell into the toilet. It was Clumsy Smurf.”
Q: What was the funniest part of the Smurfs movie?
A: “When they skateboard.”
Q: Why is that funny?
A: “Because Smurfs don’t skateboard. I have another funny part. It’s also when they throw stuff at Gargamel like eggs, toothpicks and an apple with nails stuck on it.”
Q: For anyone who didn’t watch the Smurfs Movie yet, what do you think is important for them to know?
A: “That it’s good for children and adults to watch.”
Q: Why is this important?
A: “Because if the family doesn’t know, they might think the movie is scary and once they watch the movie, they can tell other people that it’s a good movie.”
Q: What do you really think this Smurfs movie is about?
A: “About the Smurfs finding Gargamel and about taking action…if you’re clumsy, you can turn out to be not that clumsy at the end. You can turn out to be the hero in the end.”
*end of interview*
Parent’s comment and side note: I’m always surprised by her answers whenever I interview her for feedback on a product or show. This time, I’m surprised because I thought she’d either point out the 3D effects as being super cool (in our chats, she talked about the leaves floating near us, about Papa Smurf being really close) or about all the bathroom humour in the movie (e.g. on more than one occasion, she mentioned that Gargamel peed in a bucket at the restaurant but she’s convinced that the actor, Hank Azaria, was probably just pouring water into the bucket – her own idea!). Yet, she doesn’t mention either in this interview.
Hope you enjoyed her movie review on the Smurfs movie!
