PLYMOUTH - Growing up, I enjoyed watching the Smurfs on television. Face it, at 19, I am still a fan and this week's release of The Smurfs 2 did not disappoint the fan in me.
The movie showing at the Tri-Way Drive In Movie Theater, opened Wednesday night. And, as all movies like this should, it delivered an important message â that you can choose who the kind of person you really want to be. With themes like family and fitting in, there are plenty of wholesome messages in the movie.
