Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Smurfs...

Violence: Characters are repeatedly chased, hit, tripped, stepped on, smacked with objects and threatened. A character is hit by a swinging log and later smashed by a car and a bus. One man is shot with a taser stun gun. A man is kicked in the nose. Characters experience frequent moments of peril.

Sexual Content: A girl’s dress blows up in a pose similar to the Marilyn Monroe picture. A man with a kilt exposes his bare buttocks. A man makes a comment about an animal’s gender.

If I’d have read this review about the sexual content prior to seeing The Smurfs, then I’d have been afraid to take my kids to see it.  The “man” in a kilt who shows his bare buttocks is a smurf who shows his WHITE pants.  BIG DIFFERENCE!  I would not have gone to see it if I read this review and saw that, so the review should be corrected.  Also, the girl posing as Marilyn is Smurfette over an air vent.
