Plus, The Smurfs director Raja Gosnell learns a lesson from the little blue creatures, and Eric D. Snider goes up against newly-minted Reject Kate Erbland for the Movie News Pop Quiz.

La La, La La La La [16:15 – 40:30]: The Smurfs director Raja Gosnell discusses the challenges of bringing the three-apple-tall beings to life in a live-action setting, responds to the negativity of online movie sites, and explains why Smurfette gets a Marilyn Monroe moment.

Meanwhile, Back At the Ranch [40:30 – The End]: Harrison Ford, Jon Favreau, Olivia Wilde and Daniel Craig tell their stories about making Cowboys & Aliens. Seriously. Harrison Ford is on this show. Indiana Jones is on this show. I’m losing my mind about it, too.
