Story


The Smurfs make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Columbia Pictures'/Sony Pictures Animation's hybrid live-action and animated family comedy, "The Smurfs". When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, they're forced through a portal, out of their world and into ours, landing in the middle of New York's 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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..you may want to bring something to read in the theater, because there's not a whole lot in it for you in this big-screen adaptation of the 1980s TV cartoon..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..it might not be the family film least insulting to its audience's intelligence this season. Still, "The Smurfs" has brains, heart and style, which will endear it to adults as well as young viewers..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..recycling discarded bits from other celluloid Happy Meals like Alvin and the Chipmunks, Garfield, and Hop into something half animated, half live action, and all careful studio calculation..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
