Who the Smurf Needs 3 Smurfing Discs of The Smurfs For the Holidays?
Not 24 hours since The Smurfs officially cracked the $500 million mark worldwide, along comes the announcement we've been waiting for: "The Smurfs On 3-Disc Holiday Gift Set, Blu-ray 3D™, DVD and Digital on December 2nd," blares the press release just over the transom at Movieline HQ. Three. Discs. Who the smurf needs three smurfing discs of The Smurfs for the holidays? Well, like so many things, it depends on whom you ask.
Technically, we should be able to settle this pretty quickly with the handy Should I See The Smurfs Flow-Chart Review. But to Sony's credit, they really are piling on the special features for Smurf obsessives and completists young and old, thus transcending our painstaking objectivity and acquiring an irresistible quality more akin to shock and awe.
