After about 20 minutes in I started thinking of all the other things I would rather watch, my final answer to my musings was...
I would rather watch the sun explode and know that I had 10 to 15 minutes left on earth than to see Gargamel or Special Needs Smurf for one more second.
I later shared that with my wife and daughters , who thought it was hysterical.

I took my 10 year old granddaughter to see this movie and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Her mother was a Smurfs fan growing up and now my granddaughter loves them as well. It starts off a little slow but gets better as the movie progresses. Its a GO for me!

If you watched them as a kid and liked them , than I would say, go see them. My daughter enjoyed the first one as well as the second movie.

Truly every one of the intended laughs was based on the suffering of another, from a kid nearly dying of a peanut allergy reaction at the beginning to the villain screaming like a little girl when he is mauled by a gargoyle at the end. The villain's ultimate goal is to torture and murder his own children and all of the Smurfs, in a machine that extracts their life force. He gives his children just a drop of life force when they are literally dying and begging him for food. Smurfette must ultimate choose between letting her newfound sibling die or betraying her entire race. Truly a dark film, not at all appropriate for children of any age.

I found the joking about peanut allergy totally inappropriate.
One of my daughter has a peanut allergy and had several close encounter with death, most recently because she hate peanut cookies at school and was afraid to ask about the ingredients in order to blend with others.
This is not the kind of stuff people should mock in a movie like the smurfs, it teaches the wrong attitude towards people with food allergy to kids.
