Maggie Pesky is a fun-loving, energetic, creative, and independent thinking tween fly from the metropolis of Stickyfeet, who often ruffles antennae with other insects caught up in conventional, hard-working everyday routines.
Comedy about awkward teenager Pepper Ann, who only really has 2 friends, and manages to put other kids off by her slightly-nerdy behaviour, constant bad timing and insistence on trying to ... See full summary »
The evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world¹s greatest sorcerer. It's up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?

Brainy Smurf and Gutsy Smurf were reduced to recurring characters for the film, staying behind to watch the village, and ultimately giving Vanity the spotlight. See more »
As Patrick and Papa Smurf leave to rescue Smurfette, Grace dials the phone to call Patrick's stepfather and begins saying, "Hello, Victor..." as the end of the first ring can still be heard. See more »
I went to the cinema to watch the first one in 3D with the kids and I have to admit I was putting a brave face on and trying to concentrate on enjoying the blue Slush Puppy drink that only cinemas seem to sell.
I settled the kids into their seats and and put on my 3D glasses and hoped it would hide the fact from my partner that I was asleep, as long as I didn't snore again! I have to say (still talking about the first one here) that I was pretty impressed from the outset. The 3D has come a hell of a long way from the day's of Jaws when I last used it and the storyline was strong and never boring.
Smurfs 2 I thought was going to be one of those, 'should have never made a sequel' films after seeing mocking video's on You Tube with children singing about how much they hated it! Personally I couldn't see that it could be better than the first film but I was very wrong. The 3D was stunning all the way through and at one point I forgot that I wasn't actually on the set! Again the storyline was strong, never dulled off and I found it one of few films that I could not pop to the toilet during or go for a smoke, there was no point where I thought I might not miss anything.
The true credit though goes to Gargamel and his cat. There were point's that had me laughing out loud which as an adult would ordinarily be embarrassing at a kids film but then I noticed all the adults were laughing out loud too.
And I'm sorry, if you don't have slightly moist eye's at the end then you have no soul!
