“Do not be fooled by their cuteness.” “Stop saying ‘Smurf’ for everything!” Are these two quotes from July 29’s 3-D The Smurfs, or reactions to the new trailer? Answer: The former, but, still, at least a third of this screenplay must be made of the word “Smurf,” based on the teaser embedded after the jump. Yet, the little blue guys with a terribly narrow vocabulary are undeniably cute: Watch as they escape the evil Gargamel (Hank Azaria) by transporting themselves into New York City and Neil Patrick Harris’ arms. Bonus draw: There’s a laughing cat. (Maybe that’s just an attraction for me.)
