The Smurfs are back and in 3D! I like this movie. Initially, I thought this movie would appeal more to younger kids, but I enjoyed it and found myself laughing in some parts. The movie is based on The Smurfs TV series. In case you have not watched the TV series before, the movie tells the story of the Smurfs coming to the big city, New York, to escape from the evil Gargamel. They end up befriending a couple named Patrick and Grace because they let them stay at their apartment. If you're wondering how the Smurfs will steer clear of Gargamel and get back to their magical world, watch the movie to find out! While the Smurfs are in New York, they go on exciting endeavors. The movie depicts the liveliness of the city well. I also like how the storyline of the movie works together smoothly. In addition, the movie delivers many meaningful messages, and at the same time incorporates humorous jokes. The Smurfs learned the importance of teamwork. As for Patrick, he learned to follow his heart and be more confident in his decisions in his job and in his role of becoming a father. One of the things I found funny include Gargamel's cat's facial expressions. The cat's expressions are hilarious, and very similar to a person's. I recommend this movie to children 6 and up. It is a fun family film. Parents will laugh as they reminisce their childhoods, and children will enjoy watching the adorable Smurfs as they go on thrilling adventures.

When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours -- in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
