Goofs

When Patrick Winslow encounters his boss as he's coming in on the first day of work after his promotion, she comments that he seems to have "nervous energy". He gestures awkwardly in the air with both arms and replies, "nervous energy's what's going on up in here!" Halfway through his reply the camera angle changes and he's no longer lifting both arms; he's gesturing with only his right arm, while his left arm is clutching a folder to his chest. 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.

Adorable, Funny and Nostalgic
27 August 2011 | by carlypiSee all my reviews

I don't have any children of my own, but I am a big child myself. Born in the 80s and having grown up watching The Smurfs cartoon on television I was really looking forward to seeing The Smurfs on the big screen and for me it didn't disappoint.

This movie has got so many awful reviews but let's be honest, it was never going to win an Oscar but it can win the hearts of people who want to enjoy a lighthearted movie with silly giggles along the way.

The Smurfs stayed true to their cute and happy selves throughout, and the voices of the characters were extremely well suited, especially Jonathan Winters playing Papa Smurf and Katy Perry as Smurfette.

I had a lot of fun watching this movie and would definitely recommend it.
