Smurfs 2 isn't quite so good at appealing to adults, but it's harmless fun for the littlies.

The pacing is fine but the dialogue is trite. Older children and adults will also find the main plot and Smurf gibberish tedious, redeemed only by Azaria's performance and a sideplot involving Gargamel.

The Smurfs 2 panders to children, offering nothing more than a series of fart jokes and pratfalls, for the obvious purpose of cashing in on an already established fan base.

Yay! The Smurfs are back - bigger, bolder and bluer than ever. It's fun fun fun, a more-than-worthy, hyper-energetic sequel to the fabulous first film...It's all wonderful fantasy nonsense, delivered fast and with plenty of self-consciously cheap laughs.

IT'S a rarity, but it's nice when a sequel learns from the mistakes of its predecessor.

While the 2011 Smurfs movie set in New York was filled with blue-tinged charm and cute-dom, the follow-up in Paris lacks the sweet innocence from the last time around, resulting in a yarn that is overblown and a bit of a yawn

The early-elementary-school-age kids in the auditorium will certainly shut up for ninety minutes, but just about anyone outside of that demographic will find attention wandering.

This follow-up is driven solely by financial motives, and available in 3D, of course.

Smurftastically stupid. Here's a sequel to a movie we didn't care about the first time around. It's enough to make you blue.

I took my inner-5-year-old to see The Smurfs 2 and what happened? The little weasel sneaked out of the theater and went to watch something else.

In this obnoxiously peppy 3D sequel, "smurf" is an all-purpose prefix that the anaemic script uses when words fail. Which is often.

'Smurfs 2' joins many other live action/animation mixes as an average outing for the smaller fry.

Everything that was right with the first one is wrong with the second one.

At this week's preview screening, a young girl who apparently was experiencing her first 3D movie complained: 'It's in my face!' Child, I feel your pain.

Yes, this is the point in the summer when I outsource my critical judgment to my kids.

Audiences who want something more than lazy puns and the word "Smurf " used every few seconds as though some weird contractual obligation existed should look elsewhere for entertainment.

it's not excruciating like the previous film

A slight improvement on its predecessor but also the cinematic equivalent of a cynical studio executive's checklist of items that need to be included in a Smurf movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Once the early 3D novelty value is all but forgotten, it's clear these Smurfs don't have the staying power of Alvin And The Chipmunks.
