to think that I used to love the smurves

This is terrible on so many levels. I think the only thing that could make it worse is if the movie had been made in the States.

I'm especially incensed by the message they're trying to pass on - "Don't let war affect the lives of children" - because the people who are directly affected by war generally don't have the ability to keep it from affecting their children. Witness the war America has taken in the past few years to other countries. Most of the people there did not promote terrorism or weapons of mass destruction. However, they still have a war on their hands.

    I can't see how the message would even pertain to the Belgians or most other European or North American countries. Are they saying "Give to Unicef or we will bomb Brussels"?

    It's really in bad taste and quite misguided. It makes me wonder if people like the Smurf fand club are getting in line just because it is Unicef and they don't want to be seen going against a very good (albeit a bit off in their campaign choice) organization.

    I can understand and get behind a cause that's against war, but there are probably better ways to do it. I can see a lot of spoofs coming from this midguided attempt.
