When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours — in fact, smack dab in the middle of 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.

Did You Know?
To prepare for his role as Grouchy Smurf, George Lopez did not drink coffee, made sure he had bad breath and picked the busiest time to get to the studio.
Azrael's right ear is not notched in the last scene when he is licking Gargamel's face.
There is a place. A place that knows no sadness, where even feeling blue is a happy thing. A place inhabited by little blue beings three apples high. It lies deep within an enchanted forest, hidden away beyond the medieval village. Most people believe this place is made up, only to be found in books or children's imagination. Well, we beg to differ.
Let's put it this way: My 5 year old walked out
Took my 5 year old son to see this one at a Saturday Matinée.
I can't remember the last time i saw a more un-engaging kids flick.
My kid was noticeably bored from the word go, but i'll give him credit
he was a trooper through the first half. I've seen him get restless
before in the theatre, this one he was more or less falling asleep.
When we got to the scene where Gargamel peed in the restaurant i was
ready to check out, but i would brave it if my son was having a good
Wonder of wonders, at that point he turned to me and said "Dad, i have
to go to the bathroom, but when we're done there can we not come back
into the theatre and just go home?"
Tells you all you need to know about this one.
Don't waste your time or your money.
