2 of 5

“..there are moments that may entertain pint-sized sprogs, but in truth they deserve much better than this..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]
“..incredibly corny punchlines and Hank Azaria's go-for-broke performance as the incompetent wizard Gargamel are very much the same..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
“..if you've been suffering from Smurf-essence withdrawal, this is the movie to satisfy that craving..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“.."The Smurfs 2" is perhaps a little less grating than its predecessor, which should count for something. But that's the kind of achievement that you can fit under a mushroom..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
