The Smurfs 2 Reviews
Best suited for the little ones; parents must just endure it for their sake.
More juvenile than joyous, the Paris-set adventure is a time-waster. Quel dommage!
The Smurfs 2 is an excruciatingly basic, bland and boring representation of a famously merry and meticulous community.
All said and done however, while there is nothing disagreeable about this movie, there's nothing very remarkable about it either.
Strictly for the kids, Smurfs 2 is average fare that is entertaining on a very basic level.
Wholly catering to the little ones, The Smurfs 2 does a neat enough job blending real action with animation. The Paris visuals are a treat, too. But the film is low on original gags. While Gosnell's trademark slapstick is in place, it lacks the gentle humour of the original Belgian series it is based on.The Smurfs 2 is just not 'smurf' enough.
