Hoping to harness the magical Smurf-essence, evil wizard Gargamel creates a pair of Smurflike creatures, called Naughties. However, only a real Smurf can give Gargamel what he wants, so he kidnaps Smurfette to force her to cast a spell that will transform the Naughties into Smurfs. Papa, Clumsy and the rest of the Smurfs reunite with their human friends Patrick (Neil Patrick Harris) and Grace (Jayma Mays) to rescue Smurfette from the wizard's clutches.

    Bottom line? Kids will have a good time. Their parents will get some much needed nap time. And that’s about as much time as I want to spend on this better-than-average sequel that has a good message, a dedicated, silly human cast and love for all things smurf, which I find difficult to share.

    Sadly, the only thing you’re going to get from this review is: “Smurfs 2” is slightly better than “Smurfs 1.” BTW, faintest of praise ever... See Full Review

    Unfortunately, unless you’re 6 or under, there’s not much here for you. Some of the special effects are fun to look at, but the story is mostly dull. Kids might enjoy seeing favorite Smurf characters, and overlook the bloated screenplay, which so often seems likes it’s trying too hard to be hip. Anyone older will just have the Blues...

    Gargamel Kidnaps Smurfette. Papa plans to save her! The Smurfs reunite with Barney Stinson (NPH) and the Counselor from Glee ( Jayma Mays) to rescue her. Kids will love it. It's a lot of fun and has a nice message... It doesn't matter where you come from. Your choices make you who you are!

    Got to give Props to Hank Azaria for a near flawless take on Gargamel. I loved the cartoons as a kid and he nails it! Plus, got to love Passive Aggressive Smurf! He is so a nice way.

    he film attempts some good messages, such as “it doesn’t matter where you came from, but who you choose to be,” as well as a subplot involving Patrick’s unwillingness to accept his stepfather; but largely, the film is acceptable as a manic live-action cartoon intended for undiscriminating children...

    "Smurfs 2" is a charming movie that reminded me of the show my children watched when they were small. It contains some "smurfy" jokes and smurf magic, but the important things are the lessons contained in this film about relationships between children and a step or adoptive parent...

    SMURFS 2 is well made with some impressive animation, sound, vocal talent, and storyline. It’s entertaining for children as well as adults. Even better, the movie has a strong moral worldview that says moral virtues are the true magic of life, virtues such as sacrifice, love, protecting life, family, and adoption... See Full Review

    For parents desperately seeking entertainment during Summer 2013, Smurfs 2 could fill the bill. However I suspect many of you may leave the theater feeling a tad, ahem, blue after spending your dollars for a visit to this kingdom... See Full Review

    If summer's speedy passing has you feeling blue, then head to "The Smurfs 2" (Columbia) for a jolly pick-me-up. The lighthearted tone of this 3-D sequel -- which, like its 2011 predecessor, mixes animation with live action -- comes courtesy of the familiar azure-hued elves of the title... See Full Review

    The puns are feebler (“I was Meryl Smurfing Streep in there!”), the animation passable, the special effects quite good and the 3D utterly pointless. But if your tiny-tyke target audience has to see something, at least it’s harmless... See Full Review
