    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    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

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    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

    For all the digitally enhanced Smurfness, the results are remarkably mirthless. show more

    The bottom line: Any movie that gives Jonathan Winters work is doing something right. show more

    Sitcom star Harris puts his smart-aleck chops to good use as Patrick Winslow. show more

    Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel

    The slapstick is very small-kid friendly and even the most adult-friendly jokes are pretty mild stuff. show more

    Ed Gonzalez Slant Magazine

    Like the show, this boring, lazy, clumsily staged, overly lit, unnecessarily 3D-ed contraption even culminates with some half-hearted moral hectoring-in this case, the togetherness of the Smurfs works to validate heteronormative values. show more

    Clever story? Pass. Originality? Nah. A smidgen of real humor to keep parents entertained along with the kiddies? Smurf you. show more

    Only a moronic heterosexual could have destroyed one of the most brilliant fair tales every created! Who approved this at Columbia pictures? They should be fired. If Columbia pictures has no new creative talent they could have at least asked Tim Burton to direct. Any artistic human could have created a beautiful Fantastical movie with the Smurf\'s legend. Just a sign of the times!
