The Smurfs hit New York City in the big-screen family comedy starring Neil Patrick Harris, which hit theatres on July 29, 2011. Kidzworld has The Smurfs movie review ... and wants to know if YOU are going to see this film!!!

The Evil Wizard

For years, the evil wizard Gargamel has been searching for the Smurfs’ hidden mushroom village. He plans to collect the sweat, tears and hair from every Smurf in order to harness their power. During the blue moon festival, Papa Smurf sees a disturbing vision - one that shows Clumsy and the rest of his beloved Smurfs in the hands of Gargamel.

The Vision

As the vision predicts, Gargamel discovers the whereabouts of their village. Now the Smurfs must escape. Six Smurfs - Papa Smurf, Clumsy, Grouchy, Gutsy, Brainy and Smurfette - escape through a portal that is only open during a blue moon. They have no idea that the portal leads to the most daunting city of all - New York City.

The Portal

To flee from Gargamel, who has followed them through the portal, they hitch a ride with a local human named Patrick. Not only are Patrick and his wife expecting a baby, but Patrick is under intense pressure at this marketing job, making it the most inopportune time for the Smurfs to arrive.

The Smurfs must avoid Gargamel while they wait for the stars to realign. Only then can they return to their mushroom village. In the process, Papa Smurf teaches Patrick a thing or two about fatherhood.

The Bottom Line

The Smurfs is a great film for kids. But it offers very few laughs and for teens and parents. That seems to be the case with most family films that combine animation with live action. But that certainly doesn’t take away from the fact that The Smurfs is fun, adventurous and heartwarming.
