GET READY TO GET NAUGHTY!
In an attempt to save his magic powers, Gargamel (Hank Azaria) plans to use Smurfette to lay his hands on a secret formula for creating Smurfs. A sequel made in the same style as the original, with many of the same cast members returning. Whatever charm the first film had has vanished with this colorful piece of 3D candy that quickly gives you a plastic taste. Not even a trip to Paris, or Brendan Gleeson as Neil Patrick Harris’s stepfather do much for the film; a headache is all you get out of it.
