From Amazon.co.uk

Once in a blue moon, one gets a glimpse of what's truly important in life--and it's not always what one might expect. In the hidden land of the Smurfs, the perpetually happy blue creatures are preparing for the Blue Moon festival. They have no clue that the evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) is about to follow one of them into their secret world in an attempt to capture their happy essence--a substance guaranteed to render his magic all-powerful. In a striking parallel to Enchanted, a vortex suddenly opens up and sucks Papa, Grouchy, Smurfette, Brainy, Gutsy, and Clumsy Smurf into the middle of New York City, with Gargamel following close behind. Shocked expectant parents Patrick and Grace Winslow (Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays) end up with an apartment full of the little blue beings. They eventually befriend the Smurfs and agree to help them outsmart Gargamel and find their way back home. What ensues is a danger-filled, comical adventure that takes the Smurfs from Central Park to Patrick's place of employment and even FAO Schwarz. Just when it looks like their plan to return home will fail, and that they've destroyed Patrick's career in the process, things really heat up and everyone learns a lesson about what's really important in life and about believing in oneself. The film does a good job melding live action and animation, and there's plenty of humour involved for both kids and adults. Most kids will laugh their way through the film, but there are some situations of peril that the very youngest or easily frightened might find rather intense. Harris and Mays do a good job interacting with their new blue friends, but it's too bad these talented actors weren't given a bit more depth of character to work with. Azaria is quite an effective villain and Frank Welker's cat Azrael is hysterical. Other notable voice talent includes Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf, Alan Cumming as Gutsy, Katy Perry as Smurfette, Fred Armisen as Brainy, George Lopez as Grouchy and Anton Yelchin as Clumsy. The Smurfs is funny enough family entertainment, but given its star-studded cast, it had the potential to be even better. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

An old story converted to our days movie. The 3D screens were amazing and pretty. Even the older ones had fun assisting to the TV running this movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Honestly? It's Pretty Bad. 8 May 2013
By Theo TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This film teaches two objects lessons: no number of clever one-liners can carry a film unaided, and a formula that will sustain a half hour TV-show can easily collapse under the weight of a full-length movie.

Yes, the one-liners are often very witty. Yes, the actors deliver them well. In fact, as has been widely commented upon, Hank Azaria's performance as Gargamel is far and away the best thing about this film.

But seriously, that's it.

It has often been claimed that at the core, there are really only a very small number of stories. Stories that we tell and retell over and over again across the generations, with only relatively minor cosmetic changes upon each retelling. Endless variations on a few core themes.

If that's true, then the real job of the storyteller is to disguise this fact. The simple truth is, these storytellers did a lousy job of disguising it. The setbacks, the heartwarming moments, the climactic final battle: all come across as unbearably obvious and clichéd. Everything and everyone we encounter is utterly and completely one-dimensional. I really mean that, by the way. I know it sounds like I'm exaggerating for effect, but unfortunately I'm not.

This is a film with quite literally NO surprises.

Theo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just OK, not brilliant 11 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to this as I am a fan of Hank Azaria (The Simpsons etc.) and Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) but found this a bit dull and the 3D effects were poor when this type of movie lends itself to that format. It wasn't rubbisk or Brilliant, just OK and watchable
