As a parent you are sometimes asked to do things you normally would not dream of. Such as going to see the Smurfs in 3D at the local theater. My initial reaction to being asked to see this film was, what kind of mind altering , eye gouging , piece of %^&$ am I getting myself into. But its my son and he gave his best pouty face with those big old eyes. So naturally I swallowed my pride and words and agreed. Hey its in 3D right ? No one will recognize that I closed my eyes with my glasses on . So off to the theater we went with my own idea of what this experience would be like and it was not pretty. When we arrived I could feel myself getting nauseous in anticipation of being tortured. So we sat down and watched some trailers . Ummm many trailers about 20 minutes of trailers then the lights dimmed and the movie started.I gripped my overly priced coke and lean back to close my eyes. But something happened.
Don’t know if the soda was spiked or not but to my shock and amazement I found myself liking the movie. There was just enough humor aimed right at the adults that it made it enjoyable. Watching the kids laugh at computer generated Smurfs and cat was worth the admission . Coming out of the theater without a dribble glass and a wheel chair because I thought the film would of gave me seizures. Priceless.
