Smurfs [videorecording]

    Review by:  Lisa

Title:  The Smurfs

Starring/Voices: Hank Azaria, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, Tim Gunn, Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, Neil Patrick Harris

Collection:  Movies

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.

A fan of the animated series from the 1980’s (with the lunch box to prove it in Elementary School!), watching the Smurfs and being reminded of their “smurfiness” was fun.  The mix of live action with Neil Patrick Harris and Glee’s Jayma Mays as the couple who discover the Smurfs, and Hank Azaria as Gargamel, was believably integrated with the Smurfs.  Of all things, the biggest laughs for me were when Azrael, Gargamel’s cat, was on screen.  With an overall message of savoring what is most important in life, the movie was worth watching.
