THINGS TO COME: THE SMURFS

Satan is real! Watch below for proof…

Good going Neil Patrick Harris, you just destroyed every ounce of good will you had generated with Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

But like I said, Satan is real! The Catechism adamantly declares this truth. “Scripture witnesses to the disastrous influence of the one Jesus calls "a murderer from the beginning", who would even try to divert Jesus from the mission received from his Father.”

Satan is real! Every so often on this blog, we just feel the need to remind folks of that. And trailers like The Smurfs make doing so very very easy.

I didn't need to see that.

Q: What's red, white and blue all over?

A: Smurfs in a blender.

Wait, why would you take all the possible gold you have in getting the Smurf franchise to make *THAT* movie?

They should be put in jail...

Larry, I wish I had known that joke back in high school when I drew a six page comic featuring the gruesome death of the Smurfs. That would have been the splash page :)

But Joe, you're right. Even though The Smurfs have always rubbed me the wrong way, this does a grave injustice to them. How do you go from a magical mushroom village to a movie where Smurf is going to be a euphemism for every possible bodily function?

If it doesn't have Big Mouth, I don't want to see it. :) My baby brother went for days talking about himself in the 3rd person because of Big Mouth. "Big Mouth hungry!" "Big Mouth mad!"

Just for you, I checked the IMDb listing and, alas, there is no appearance by Big Mouth. The full cast list (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472181/fullcredits#cast) is hilarious, though. It looks like everybody in Hollywood who really needed a check is doing a voice in this thing.

Yes, Satan is real and the Church will never let you forget it . . . but that song is not Catholic! =P Deo Gratias!

I mean, "You can hear him in songs that give praise to idols of this world"?

But thanks for embedding the song. Really. =P

Oh, crud. I just watched the Smurfs trailer. And I think I just "smurfed" in my mouth as well. Wasn't Garfield bad enough?

"but that song is not Catholic!"

Nope. The Louvin Brothers were pure Southern Baptists straight out of Alabama. Even though I've got some obvious theological differences with the SBs, I grew up around these kinds of folk and have a soft spot for them.
