Storyline

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 Columbia Pictures

Trivia

The Smurfs (along with Gargamel and Azrael) travel from medieval times to modern times. This is based on The Smurfs (1981)'s ninth season, where the Smurfs would travel in time to different eras. The main time-travellers in both this film and that season are Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, and Grouchy Smurf. See more »

Goofs

In some scenes in the streets of New York, a crowd watching the recordings can clearly be seen at the end of the street. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator Smurf: 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.

Let's put it this way: My 5 year old walked out
30 July 2011 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Took my 5 year old son to see this one at a Saturday Matinée.

I can't remember the last time i saw a more un-engaging kids flick.

My kid was noticeably bored from the word go, but i'll give him credit he was a trooper through the first half. I've seen him get restless before in the theatre, this one he was more or less falling asleep.

When we got to the scene where Gargamel peed in the restaurant i was ready to check out, but i would brave it if my son was having a good time.

Wonder of wonders, at that point he turned to me and said "Dad, i have to go to the bathroom, but when we're done there can we not come back into the theatre and just go home?"

Tells you all you need to know about this one.

Don't waste your time or your money.
