Their CG-animated/live-action film debut finally answers the question weighing heavily on the mind of every fan: do Smurfs fart?

Their journey is a struggle, even with the aid of their kind protectors. So was mine.

There's more than enough action to keep little ones entertained.

Recycles the fish-out-of-water plot of Alvin and the Chipmunks and doesn't have any original ideas about what to do with the tiny characters once they are at large among us.

The writers have created the painfully unfunny Daddy Day Camp, National Security and Norbit. So what do you expect? Entertainment?

Azaria hams it up beyond the call of duty: someone should sign him up for panto.

A mixture of live-action and animation, it's a competently made but routine adventure...

Better than you might think, but not spectacular either.

I felt like plunging a razor into my tensely exposed wrist from the very first minutes.

The Smurfs might be OK if it weren't for the annoying little blue people.

After a fairly promising start with a few chuckles, it fails to maintain the momentum, and by the drawn-out end audiences are likely to start fidgeting. Especially the adults.

In terms of hitting the Smurfs it was Smurfing for, it Smurfs plenty of them.

The attempts at humor are mostly divided between predictable fish-out-of-water jokes and uninspired physical comedy.

To play The Smurfs Drinking Game you will need: Two 500cl bottles of Blue Bols (per player), one white sleeping cap, ample powder-blue face paint and too much spare time.

Join-the-dots, made-for-kids goofy blue magic that does nothing memorably new, but is guilty of putting a smile on your face, even after the Smurf-zing assault on the ears.

Rather than catering to the kids...the makers try in vain to produce something hip to appeal to all ages, or at least the parents who grew up with the cartoon.
