QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Comedy/Adventure: A small group of Smurfs try to find and warn others of their kind that an evil sorcerer is headed their way.
PLOT:
In the land of Smurf Grove, all of the little blue inhabitants are male, and each of their names indicates their dominant character traits, such as Hefty Smurf (voice of JOE MANGANIELLO), Clumsy Smurf (voice of JACK McBRAYER) and Brainy Smurf (voice of DANNY PUDI). The outlier is Smurfette (voice of DEMI LOVATO) whose name doesn't suggest anything outside of the fact that she's the lone female. Created from a lump of clay by the evil wizard Gargamel (voice of RAINN WILSON), she was sent to infiltrate the Smurfs but was turned into a good character by Papa Smurf (voice of MANDY PATINKIN). Now, she's just like the rest, but she still wonders what her purpose is in life.

She gets the chance to explore that when she spots what appear to be a stranger Smurf staring back at her from the other side of a wall separating the Smurfs' land from the Forbidden Forest. But just then, Gargamel's pet vulture, Monty, scoops up Smurfette and the stranger's hat and returns both to its master's lair where it lives with the equally villainous cat, Azrael. Gargamel discerns that there's a lost village of Smurfs in the Forbidden Forest, which is a fortunate turn of events for him since he needs lots of Smurfs to stir into his magic potion that will turn him into an all-powerful wizard.

As he, Monty and Azrael set out to find that lost village, Smurfette, Hefty, Clumsy and Brainy try to beat them there and warn the all-female Smurfs, including the likes of Smurfstorm (voice of MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ), Smurfblossom (voice of ELLIE KEMPER), Smurflily (voice of ARIEL WINTER) and their leader, Smurfwillow (voice of JULIA ROBERTS), of who will be arriving soon.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're into the Smurf universe they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild action and rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
