With the help of new human friends (Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays) the Smurfs have to get home before Gargamel tracks them down.

It is the best animated movie I've ever seen in my life and adding Neal Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother and Sofía Vergara from Modern Family was such a BONUS!!!

I havnt seen anything smurfy that I can remember except the christmas cartoon special & my mum collected smurfs so my son & I quite looked forward to the movie & enjoyed it & had a good laugh. I really enjoyed the cat laughing & making comments even tho it was obvious it looked funny to me & my son thought the peeing in the wine "chamber pot" in the restaurant to be hilariously funny. all in all a good bit of family fun. by the way my son is a teenager not a young one, we both enjoy kids movies from time to time & I think thats a good thing don't you?

Entertainment Weekly (USA)

The Smurfs may be blue, but their movie is decidedly green, 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.

Hollywood Reporter

This noisy, live action/animated rendering of those wee mushroom-dwellers doesn’t bother trying to capture the essence of what made the Pierre “Peyo” Culliford-created characters such a curiously endearing phenomenon.

Los Angeles Times

This animated-live action hybrid is really more 3-D disaster than family comedy.

New York Times

Those grown-up winks, along with an array of New York locations, make The Smurfs a surprisingly tolerable film for adults.

The A.V Club (USA)

There’s little reason for childless adults to see The Smurfs, unless they’re just curious to know how far filmmakers can go in using feigned sincerity to sell a thoroughly calculated, cynical product.

The Daily Mail (UK)

Small children may not notice the crassness of the script, cheapness of the gags and desperate mugging of the actors. Most older people will know exactly what this is: a huge, steaming pile of smurf.

Easily pleased children and fans of the Teletubbies will enjoy it.

Time Out (USA)

It makes you think about deep things, man, such as your own mortality, which you may long for more than a few times during Raja Gosnell’s surreally awful live action–animation hybrid.

Diverting and weird, but harmless.

All 4-year-olds reading this review: You're going to love The Smurfs. Parents of said 4-year-olds there's not a whole lot in it for you in this big-screen adaptation of the 1980s TV cartoon.

Variety (USA)

Adorable and annoying, patently unnecessary yet kinda sweet, it's a calculated commercial enterprise with little soul but an appreciable amount of heart.

Village Voice (USA)

More than that mushiness, though, it's the possibility of this frantic film spawning sequels that truly inspires thoughts of smurficide
