The Smurfs

Critics Consensus

The Smurfs assembles an undeniably talented cast of voice actors and live-action stars -- then crushes them beneath a blue mound of lowest-common-denominator kiddie fare.

Movie Info

The Smurfs make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Columbia Pictures'/Sony Pictures Animation's hybrid live-action and animated family comedy, The Smurfs. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, they're forced through a portal, out of their world and into ours, landing in the middle of New York's Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. -- (C) Sony Pictures

    Should've just left them the way they are in before the movie came.

    Dumb movie about Smurfs running around in NYC.

    Kids will like it. Parents probably won't. Oh, and it stars Neil Patrick Harris, so that's a plus.

    Light, fluffy, amusing, totally disposable, The Smurfs is an interesting take on a kiddie cartoon. Sure, most of the jokes are potty humor and it can be argued there are better ways to show off the material, but going high brow was never the intent here. Hank Azaria's Gargamel is horribly overplayed with a terribly shallow character we can almost see twirling his mustache in every scene. He's the butt of many of the jokes, though Sofia Vergara has nothing useful to do, nor is she a convincing "villain." You don't buy the love between Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays; there's no affection between the two. But know what? I laughed, I was entertained. Sue me.
