When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours -- in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.

Critics Consensus: The Smurfs assembles an undeniably talented cast of voice actors and live-action stars -- then crushes them beneath a blue mound of lowest-common-denominator kiddie fare.

Their journey is a struggle, even with the aid of their kind protectors. So was mine.

Not enough bright spots in disappointing adaptation.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although there's nothing overtly upsetting in The Smurfs, you can expect some potty-type humor and some cartoonishly violent scenes involving bad guy Gargamel and his cat Azrael in this adaptation of the beloved childhood cartoon. But no one is ever seriously hurt, and the Smurfs always triumph. The word "smurf" is used often as a substitute for other words, including, on occasion, curse words -- i.e. "smurf off!" or "smurf me." Many brands are featured in the movie (usually if they have the word "blue" in them), as well as electronics and toy companies. While kids might pick up a few messages about positive teamwork and self-confidence, chances are they'll probably just laugh at the goofy pratfalls and jokes.
