Shamefully standard and cynical, the amount of product placement in this movie is jaw-dropping.

A nefarious plot by the evil wizard Gargamel has the Smurfs banished from their own village only to wind up in Central Park. Now the small blue creatures must figure out how to get back to their own world and escape Gargamel. This movie was just annoying and really stupid.

My son really enjoyed it for obvious reasons. It is a good movie targeted just for children.

When the evil wizard Gargamel once again attempts to capture the Smurfs to extract powers from them, these blue little creatures enters the human world. Now, they have to figure out how to get back to their world with the help of a couple of human beings. *** I had a lot of fun with this movie, though, nothing really special about it, the humor was still there. Also, nothing special about the cast. Nothing special about the story. It was just pure fun and laughter. Indeed, a relaxing one- and cute!

I started watching this convinced I was going to hate it, convinced my memories as a child watching the Smurfs would be tarnished, but, surprisingly, I didn't hate it. Sure, it's clearly directed at kids without much for the adults to be entertained by (except Hank Azaria's Gargamel, who steals the show), but I did laugh out loud a few times, and I managed to be entertained. Plus, who knew Papa Smurf was such a badass?

I have a soft spot for the Smurfs and, really, this film is a pretty well-made picture. It doesn't dive into anything deep and is very obviously aimed at children and families, but the contagiously joyful spirit of the Smurfs shines through and makes the film surprisingly entertaining. Loved the brief shoutout to Peyo, also.
