Our intrepid mod Susan and her daughter went off to the movies to bring us the scoop on The Smurfs 2.

Quote:
There has been a lot of talk in the food allergy community about the new The Smurfs 2 movie because of a certain scene involving peanut allergy. Allergic Living asked me to see the movie and review it, from the allergy perspective. Along for her point of view was my 12-year-old daughter, who has severe allergies to dairy, egg, peanut, all tree nuts and most legumes.

So off we went. While I was prepared to be outraged, I also wondered whether the movie would prove a sign that the entertainment industry was starting to pay lip service to food allergies. With statistics like 1 in 13 children having food allergies, would this turn out to be an example of tokenism?

Have you seen the movie? What are your thoughts?

Thanks for the info! I think I will take my older son to see it, but wait before showing it to my younger ones. They are very sensitive and I want to see how it's handled.
