The sailor of legend is framed by the goddess Eris for the theft of the Book of Peace, and must travel to her realm at the end of the world to retrieve it and save the life of his childhood friend Prince Proteus.
When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours -- in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. Written by
There is a Smurf named Panicky that was supposed to appear in the film and was even give a voice actor (Adam Wylie), but he was only mentioned by Gutsy in dialogue. However, he does appear in merchandise sold by fast-food chain McDonald's. See more »
When Patrick is using Google to search for information on smurfs, the icon on the bottom-right shows his laptop is charging the battery. Before and after this scene however, it is clear the laptop is not connected to anything, so it is certainly not connected to a power source. See more »
There is a place. A place that knows no sadness, where even feeling blue is a happy thing. A place inhabited by little blue beings three apples high. It lies deep within an enchanted forest, hidden away beyond the medieval village. Most people believe this place is made up, only to be found in books or children's imagination. Well, we beg to differ.

There is a facetious statement in closing credits: "No digital cats were harmed in the making of this picture." See more »
Everyone involved should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
I know film makers never set out to make an awful movie. In their heart they start the production with the hopes the final product will be a good one. But after seeing this, I wonder what they really had hoped for. Even during pre-production someone, a producer with some ounce of talent, should have hit the breaks on this one. In the end they all must have realised what a huge pile of toxic waste this is.
If you're going to make an animated Smurf movie, then do so and let it be animated in it's own Smurf world. Don't involve real humans, animals, locations etc.
The final product stink and everyone involved should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
