    Why did you mention the director?

    The movie’s directors are never mentioned on here.

    Unless they’re east asian.

    Transparent agenda is transparent.

    YOU STUPID ASS!! Why did YOU bring it up. Maybe you’re the racist. It’s a terrible thing calling someone a racist. IDIOT!!

    First of all, Papa Smurf didn’t create Smurfette. Gargamel did. She was sent in as Gargamel’s evil spy with the intention of destroying the Smurf village. But the overwhelming goodness of the Smurf way of life transformed her. And as for the whole gang-bang scenario, it just couldn’t happen. Smurfs are asexual. They don’t even have… reproductive organs under those little, white pants. It’s just so illogical, you know, about being a Smurf. You know, what’s the point of living… if you don’t have a d1ck?

    Didn’t they already make that movie? It was called “Avatar”.

    Bring back Smurf berries too!

    Those were cool blue, big, cat alien things…the smurfs are some kind of seriously uncool blue gnome things. Best thing to do if you see a smurf is step on it, hard!


    Sorry but Smurfs are way too retro for the kids to get into today. HW needs some new material.
