The feud between dueling comics movies COWBOYS & ALIENS and THE SMURFS erupted in violence last night when COWBOYS star Harrison Ford ripped the head off a stuffed Papa Smurf handed to him my late night chat host Conan O’Brien.
Ford’s rage may have been misplaced, as COWBOYS & ALIENS eventually edged SMURFS at the box office by a million buckaroonies or so.
If nothing else, the incident set up a dandy idea for a sequel: COWBOYS VS LITTLE BLUE PEOPLE.
