Smurfs movie review

The Smurfs is a CG animated and live action feature movie about the nostalgic little blue cartoon characters. Young children will think this movie is super smurfy. Contains some rude humor, a few suggestive jokes and lots of smurf language.

The festival of the Blue Moon is about to begin, and things are going smoothly for the smurfs, but Papa Smurf sees a vision of the future that is quite disturbing. The vision begins to play out in real life, as Clumsy Smurf inadvertently leads the evil wizard Gargamel to the smurfs' secret village. As they scramble to get away from the bumbling wizard, Clumsy goes the wrong way. Papa, Smurfette, Brainy, Gutsy, and Grouchy follow after him, and they all stumble upon a mysterious portal that sucks them away to a different realm -- Central Park, New York City.

Meanwhile, hapless adults who find themselves dragged to a movie theatre by their kids needn't despair: The Smurfs is forgettable, instant-noodles cinema that is easy enough to digest. It may even leave you with a smile on your face, if only for a very short while.
