I'm not saying the first Smurfs movie was cinematic genius, but it was at least tolerable. Smurfs 2, for an adult, is agonizingly boring. My kids (ages 9 and 5) enjoyed it, so I guess it's okay for younger children. But honestly, I've seen many kids' movies in the past, and there's usually at least some element of humor in there that adults can appreciate and enjoy too.
That is not the case here. The plot feels very drawn out and contrived. The humor revolves largely on sight gags and jokes of the farting, implied nakedness, or "oh look, I'm falling and crashing into something" variety. While that was done to good effect in Shrek, it was embarrassingly bad here. They gave Azrael the cat a bigger role in this one, but it came across as irritating for the most part
All in all, an okay movie for younger kids, but adults, be prepared to be bored out of your mind by it!
