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.

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

Enjoyable sequel to the 2011 hit, enlivened by decent animation, strong comic performances, a terrific voice cast and a witty, nicely pitched script that ensures there is entertainment for both adults and children.

Though not the best film out there, The Smurfs 2 has more than enough Smurf-essence to entertain viewers of all ages.

Smurf-ophiles will love it but the unconverted still won't be feeling the blues.

It's sursmurfingly not-bad.

It's not exactly "Ratatouille," but this quasi-animated movie makes an amusing late-summer vacation from superheroes and shoot-'em-ups.

Will kids like "The Smurfs 2" at least as much as the first one? Answer: Is a Smurf's butt blue?

For movies that don't aspire to the pedigree of age-spanning animated tales, it's harmless and above-average.

A sequel that changes scarcely a drop of Smurf-essence in its winning formula.

Hybrid specialist Raja Gosnell returns as director and ably delivers slapstick comedy for the kids and nicely shot views of Paris landmarks for the adults.

This was something that you could have done something cool with. In there, somewhere, there's a good Smurf movie. But for some reason, the director, the writers..they're just not doing it.

Smurfs 2 just isn't an enjoyable time.

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.

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
September 2, 2013
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.
