    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.

    I never really watched the smurfs as a child so i honestly have no idea how well this movie used the original source material. It may have stuck very closely to the original or it may have butchered the old cartoon, all i can review this film on is how well it stands alone as a movie.

    Perhaps i would have understood the movie better if i had seen the cartoon. I mean, it's a children's movie so it's not…

    The Smurfs is a property which could have yielded a very good movie in the right, focused hands. Unfortunately the hands it fell into were the hands of the guy who brought us Home Alone 3, and the list of credited screenwriters on Wikipedia is so long it reads like the Miami Holocaust Memorial. The film opts to abandon Peyo's whimsical fantasy world in favor of having The Smurfs be lost in New York in a fish out of water…

    The Smurfs utilises the rather old storyline that through a series of mishaps, the titular heroes end up in the real world followed by the somewhat evil, eternally clumsy Gargamel (Hank Azaria). I say real world as it’s continually pointed out that the Smurfs are fictional and have their own comic strip and yet, no one seems to know what they are, including Neil Patrick Harris. After a series of 'hilarious' fish out of water episodes, the little blue buggers…

    My little cousins love this movie. As I watched this and the sequel with them, I was grateful that I got the chance to enjoy movies like The Lion King and Toy Story throughout my childhood. This is truly stupid. Don't get me wrong, there are tons of great children movies still being made, but this isn't one of them.
    However, I did like Hank Azaria.

    O reviver de uma franchise infantil, desta vez modernizada do desenho animado para a animação CGI mas onde a indústria de Hollywood, achou por bem enfiar todos os seus chouriços requentados (ou seja as ideias programadas costume) e tornar isto um imparável enchorrilho dos piores lugares comuns, e fundir com imagem real em situações que em nada abonam a favor dos Estrunfes... desculpem, os "smurfs" como agora somos obrigados a proferir.
    Mau. Vergonhosamente uma sucessão de templates banais e desinspirados.…

    The Smurfs......... God I hate this movie. The Smurfs is a 2011 remake of the 1981 cartoon..... and It is horrible. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world into New York City...... yeah.... that's the story.

    First, I just want to comment on the story, why does everything have to take place in modern days? Why couldn't this be like the cartoon, and take place in the…

    I felt like this had a pretty weird plot but I enjoyed it well enough to keep watching it until the end.

    Never has a cash grab been any more smurfin' obvious in the history of cinema. Not even Foodfight was this obvious - all the product placement, the blatant unoriginality, the godawful puns (approved by the Peyo family), the in-your-face marketing schemes; Grouchy falls in love with a Ms. Green plush doll. You know, the female M&M?

    It further goes to show that if you add a touch of realism to a beloved classic cartoon character's eyes, the result will take…

    When it comes to movies based on the cartoons I used to watch as a kid, I'm usually disappointed. The movies aren't necessarily bad, but I'm older now so the kid-focused stuff tends to lose some of that magic it had when I was the target age. The Smurfs does run into the same issue somewhat.

    The nice thing about this movie though is that they don't take the idea too seriously, so we're all able to relax and just…
