The Smurfs Movie Review
If you grew up with The Smurfs, you'll be happy to find out that those little blue creatures are headed to the big screen with a brand new 3D motion picture that opens nationwide in theaters, Friday, July 29th.
The new film brings back all our favorite childhood Smurfs including Clumsy, Grouchy, Jokey, Smurfette and of course Papa! When Evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) chases the Smurfs out of their village through a portal landing, they wind up in the middle of New York's Central Park. Surprisingly, New Yorkers don't seem too thrown by blue midgets running around their city.
While being chased by Gargamel, the Smurfs wind up falling into a box and soon turn the lives of two soon to be parents (played by Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays), completely upside down. Like most first time parents, the couple find themselves doubting their parenting skiils... Will I be a good dad? How do I balance work and home? Am I ready? As they help the Smurfs find their way back to their world, the experience gives them a good taste of what it's like to be the parent of unruly kids. As the Smurfs run rampant through FAO Schwartz, while constantly singing their annoying theme song "La La La La La La..." that's sure to help prepare anyone for their first child.
