The Smurfs

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Against all logic and previous indications, "The Smurfs" ends up being a fun movie for both kids and adults thanks in large part to Hank Azaria as Gargamel and his cat Azrael. Great use of 3D and Neil Patrick Harris (dignity remaining mostly intact) are also fun.

13 December 2011
  • Summary: Gentle enough for small children and should evoke some nostalgia in those who grew up watching “The Smurfs” on television. But it's only 22 minutes long.

The Smurfs 3D Blu-ray Review

7 December 2011
  • Excerpt: The Film "Stop saying 'Smurf' for everything!" Back in the '80s, The Smurfs were a global phenomenon. Those little blue creatures had cartoons, toys, lunchboxes, an ice show, and more. Flash forward to 2011 and life isn't all that Smurfy. Don't be (ahem) blue; Sony snagged the rights to The Smurfs movie. The Smurfs finds our little friends perfectly content, living in the Smurf Village, where everyone sings, everyone is blue -- and both of those things are good.

The Smurfs Review

DoBlu
4 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Ask yourself this: Why do the Smurfs go to New York in this big screen adaptation? Most movies do it as a joke. Mass murderer Jason Vorhees did it because the series had no where else to go (although it did eventually: space), and Tarzan dropped into the big apple because a studio wanted to extend a franchise. Here, it’s not necessary, internet cynicism the type of thing that damned the movie when it was announced, and why not?

The Smurfs 3D Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
24 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The Smurfs is just an enjoyable and very well-made little movie. Despite following formula and brining nothing new to the table, the movie just works because it never really takes itself seriously. It's delightfully playful and easy to watch. It exudes a fun, catchy vibe, even through mountains of cliché and endless predictability.

  • Summary: Try as it might to be "Enchanted", it's still a movie about Smurfs. There's only so much you can do there.

  • Excerpt: In recent years the phrase, “Stop raping my childhood,” has fallen into common parlance. People are often over-protective of the things that they held near and dear when they were children and have no interest in seeing it modernized. Take for example, The Smurfs . The characters, created by the Belgian artist Peyo, became part of pop culture in the 1980s when millions of kids watched the animated program as it ran for 256 episodes from 1981 to 1989.

The Smurfs

AV Club
28 July 2011
  • Excerpt: There’s a simple reason for kids to like the Stuart Little movies, the modern Alvin And The Chipmunks franchise, and the new live-action movie The Smurfs : They can identify with the animated protagonists, who are all impulsive, curious, undersized and out of their element in an adult-scale world, and surrounded by judgmental big people who regularly get shrill and screechy over every teensy little furniture-smashing mistake.
