The Smurfs

The Smurfs is in the late 1950s, a cartoonist in Belgium by the name of Peyo made a comic strip that featured small blue creatures. When the United States of America caught a glimpse of these comic strips from Belgium, American newspapers translated the strips, and called the little blue creatures "Smurfs". Then, in the early 1980s, animation pioneers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera brought the Smurfs to American television, where it became a huge success. Then, in 1983, we got a Smurfs movie entitled "The Smurfs and the Magic Flute" where it became a huge success. Now with the age of computers, Hollywood has delivered a more digital version of the cartoon in a movie simply known as "The Smurfs". How does it look and hold up to the original creations of Peyo? Not smurfing much. The movie is a really bad mix between live-action and animation that's sure to please kids, but not so much adults. Hollywood tries to make a modern Smurfs movie, but fails miserably.

The film begins with the Smurfs getting ready for the Blue Moon Festival. In his home, Gargamel being powerful. He decides to suspend Clumsy from picking Smurf Roots, but Clumsy secretly does so anyway. However, Gargamel sees him and follows him into the village. The Smurfs all flee, and Clumsy runs into a forbidden cave. Papa, Smurfette, Grouchy, Brainy and Gutsy notice this and hurry after him. They find him at the edge of a cliff, and while trying to help him up, they are sucked into a giant vortex, leading to New York. Patrick and Grace, a married and expectant couple, befriend them and allow them to stay in their apartment.
Papa learns that he will be able to get them all home in a couple nights. But first, he must figure out the spell to do so. Patrick tells them that there is an old book store in the city, and they head there to get a spell book. After lots of searching, they find one of their own comic books, containing the spell. Gargamel hears where they are, so he sneaks into the book store and finds a dragon wand, which he then steals. He uses the dragon wand to abduct Papa. The Smurfs promise Papa that they won't try to save him. However, Clumsy stayed behind, so he plans a rescue, along with Patrick. The other Smurfs agree to help. Meanwhile, Gargamel is going to remove the "Smurf essence" from Papa and charge it into the dragon wand, which would make him more powerful than anything else in the world.
Patrick and the Smurfs battle Gargamel while Smurfette saves Papa. Also, Brainy reads the spell and opens up the portal, allowing him to go home and round up his friends. They, too, join the fight. Gargamel captures Papa again and throws him into the air, but Patrick catches him. Right before Gargamel can destroy them both, Gutsy knocks the dragon wand out of his hand. Clumsy tries to catch it, and Papa believes that he will fail, but, much to Papa's surprise, he manages to catch it. Without his dragon wand, Gargamel is powerless, and Papa destroys the wand once and for all, and the Smurfs all return home. A series of still images during the credits reveal that Patrick and Grace had a baby boy, and that they named him Blue, and Smurfs rebuilding their home, just like what humans have.
Voice Actor :
  • Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf. Winters also provided the voice of Grandpa Smurf in the 1981 cartoon series.
  • Katy Perry as Smurfette. About gaining the voice role, Perry said: "They had done a blind test where they took certain voices from previous interviews and matched them with the character. They liked my voice without even knowing who it was, and when they found out it was me, they thought that would work out. My personality was just a plus!"
  • Fred Armisen as Brainy Smurf
  • Alan Cumming as Gutsy Smurf, one of three Smurfs created specifically for the film and who is Scottish, wears a kilt, and has sideburns. The character is also described as the "action hero" of the film
