The Smurfs (2011)
Much better than the reviews!
I just watched The Smurfs with my wife, my 10 year old son, and my 5 year old daughter and we all enjoyed the movie very much. I had promised to take my kids to see this after seeing the first preview several months ago and I was concerned with the poor ratings on IMDb and poor critic reviews. However, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at how good the film was. It had a good story line and was much funnier than I expected.
The live characters were cast very well with Hank Azaria playing a perfect Gargamel and the smurf voices were good as well, especially Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf and Katy Perry as Smurfette (my daughter's favorite).
Bottom line, if you have small children or you were a fan of the cartoon growing up, you will enjoy this film.
Coyote Ugly (2000)
Best Movie of the Summer!!
I'm sure many of you will disagree with me ranking this as the best movie of the summer, but considering the competition its no contest. I have seen MI2, The Perfect Storm, Chicken Run, What Lies Beneath, etc... and none of them left me feeling as satisfied as Coyote Ugly. I have not seen Gladiator yet so I will not comment on it, but the majority of the summer movies I've seen this year made me wish I had stayed home. Yet Coyote Ugly had it all. A beautiful cast (both male and female), a story line you actually believe could happen, and a great soundtrack. The audience laughed, cried, and for the first time this year the audience cheered at the end. This is not Shakespeare by any means and it is not Showgirls either (sorry guys). However, if you just want to have a good time at the movies I highly recommend Coyote Ugly.
