This weekend marks the opening of 'The Smurfs,' a film based on the popular Saturday morning cartoon and Belgian comic strip. If you don't already know, Smurfs are small blue creatures from Smurf Village who often throw the word "smurf" into every sentence. (For example: Moviefone is the best smurfing website on the Internet.)

Hopefully this won't come as a shock to our Smurf demographic, but Smurfs do not hold a monopoly on blue-colored characters in films. So, to celebrate the opening of their new flick, we decided to compile the best blue roles ever. (And yes, there are more than just 'Avatar' characters).
