Smurfs 2 is a movie to which you can actually apply the word cute. The Smurfs make you feel warm and fuzzy and make you want to pinch their cheeks.

 

This time around, Garganel is up to his usual tricks to try and get the essence from the Smurfs so that he can rule the world. He creates some new naughty creatures but they are not blue. He gets them to kidnap Smurfette who was his original naughty creation but who got adopted by the Smurfs and became one of them. So SMurfette lands up with the 2 naughty creatures. Will she become like them? There is a parallel track about their human friend Patrick Winslow and his reconciliation with his dad, even as he helps them to find Smurfette. All in all, the story is about family and the meaning of love and all things soppy and sentimental.

 

The girl naughty creature is a welcome addition. She is smart and sassy and not so sappy. I think she will do good things in future sequels. The music also moves away from the earlier Smurfs tune into songs with a more youthful feel. This will appeal to kids 7+ who love the music in the Barbie movies.

 

The other good part is that the movie is set in Paris and you get to see the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame cathedral from some pretty nifty angles and that too in 3D. The action is fast but not that fast that very young ones will get confused.

 

All in all, I liked this one better than the first Smurfs movie. I am now itching to buy a Smurf toy. Proof that the Smurf essence has got into me. Go with the kids and enjoy.
