Evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) has plagued the happy, peaceful Smurfs for a very long time.

  • Once you're done trying to conjugate the smurfs, there's a better movie than anyone could have possibly expected, thanks in large part to an honest effort by Harris in a thankless role. show more

  • Smurfs is utterly kid-friendly. show more

  • Azaria channels his inner Charles Nelson Reilly, which helps, as does an evil emoting cat. Kids under 7 will likely giggle at some too-harsh pratfalls, not care about a grown man's fear of procreation, not get all the tiny innuendos and possibly miss how the movie is a fairly successful tourism ad for New York. show more
