Smurfs can be 'down with the kids' too! Modern culture has seeped into Belgian cartoonist Peyo’s creation in The Lost Village. When even they're doing selfies, it's perhaps time to rethink our lives.

Fun fact: Smurfs, though nominally male, are completely asexual, and that the blonde and womanly Smurfette is in fact a pseudo-Smurf who was created through dark magic by their arch nemesis, the balding and dim-witted wizard Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) but later switched sides.

This is a plot point in Smurfs: The Lost Village, which finds Smurfette, Clumsy Smurf (Jack McBrayer), Brainy Smurf (Danny Pudi), and Hefty Smurf (Joe Manganiello) searching the far reaches of the magical forest for Smurfy Grove, a second, all-female community of Smurfs, with Gargamel and his cat, Azrael, in close pursuit. Along the way, our Smurf heroes befriend bioluminescent bunny rabbits, get chased by fire-breathing dragonflies, and do assorted wholesome Smurfy things.

It's a microwave meal of a kids film; let them have their fill. (research Jack Whiting) Or let them eat cake…
