The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Any­one who has watched the Smurfs’ 1980s cartoon se­ries will know ex­actly what to ex­pect from this half-an­i­mated 3D fam­ily film. The sug­ary plot re­volves around the bois­ter­ous blue gang be­ing forced to flee from evil wizard Gargamel (played by TheSimp­sons’ Hank Azaria, who pro­vides most of the hu­mour) and, af­ter be­ing sucked through a worm­hole, they find them­selves in good ol’ New York. Celebri­ties pop­ping by to hang out with the tiny lit­tle fel­las in the grown-up world are How I Met Your Mother star Neil Pa­trick Har­ris and aptly car­toonesque pop star­let Katy Perry. While the ‘‘smur­fol­ogy’’ is over­bear­ing and gim­micky, it’s per­fect silli­ness for kids. ★★★
