(2017) (voices of Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson) (PG)
- 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.
- 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.
