Storyline

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?

Trivia

Papa Smurf is called Santa several times in the film this is due to the fact that Papa Smurf's appearance bears a resemblance to Santa Claus. In addition to joking on the physical similarities between Papa and Santa, this running gag refers to how Jonathan Winters portrayed Santa in Santa vs. the Snowman (1997) and Santa vs. the Snowman 3D (2002).

User Reviews

Marginal improvement over the first
7 July 2020 | by briancham1994See all my reviews

This film is slightly better than its predecessor but not by a lot. It shares its same strengths and weaknesses. The main improvement is that it actually tries for some character development and the tense scenes are actually more exciting. The downside is that it shoehorns in the stepfather and the son who don't really add much to the film.
