I believe that Smurfs and most likely Smurfs 2 are both terrible movies.

First round=acceptance.

1. They say "smurf" way too much.
What the smurf? They say smurf way too smurfing much. Oh my smurf. They replace just about every other word with smurf. Smurfity smurfity smurf.

2. Why do they have to be in a city?
The smurfs cartoon is based in a mideval kind of place with castles and such. Not a smurfing city.

3. Practically the only people who like them are strange adults and really little kids.
Strange adults might like it because, well, they're strange. Little kids might like it because its just really dorky and they don't understand how to tell if a movie is good or bad just yet because they're so young.

4. The director must be an annoyingly presistent and stubborn man.
He has released to Smurfs movies, both have gotten absolutely terrible reviews (Rotten Tomatoes). Yet he is ALREADY planning to make a third one. *Yawn* another unneeded movie guaranteed for bad reviews. And look at his page on Rotten Tomatoes. His name is "Raja Gosnell". He's a horrible director, apparently. The best review he's gotten for one of his movies is 56%. Yikes.

I'm not gonna lie. The Smurfs (Movie # 1) did positively TERRIBLE! But as I have checked Rotten Tomatoes too. The Smurfs 2 did alot better, so far. Although 14 % of critics liked it, 75 % of regular viewers liked it. I know I am going to lose, because you are absoloutly right about them being terrible. On Movie web, 93 % of viewers liked it. They did say it should have had a better ending though.

1. Why did you accept this challenge if you agree with me and you know you're going to lose, apparently?

2. You bring up the point of regular viewers liking it more. No offense, but regular viewers usually don't know how to correctly criticize tthe aspects of a film, whereas critics have spent most of their lives learning and studying that kind of thing,
