I got to take my whole family to a special preview of the new movie, The Smurfs last night, and I have to say, so incredibly cute and fun!
Not only did it take me back to my childhood and reintroduce me to the characters I fell in love with, but my 5 year old and my 3 year old were mesmerized! My 2 year old was tired and was a little cranky. But still laughed and danced right along with the characters!
The storyline was fun and attention grabbing and the girls reported that they did not find anything “very scary” about it at all! And though I can see why it wears a PG rating, there are a few jokes that are aimed at keeping mom and dad happy, cleverly hidden so only we would understand it, I did not find anything in it to me too mature for my 3 and 5 year old.
I loved the 3D effects and thought that the graphics were spot on. I thought it was nice that my kids could watch most of the movie without glasses and still see clean lines, instead of 3D blurs all of the time. In fact, all three had their glasses off by the end!
The Smurfs will make you laugh… a lot! And it will tug at your heartstrings a bit too. But it will mostly give you the desire to go out, find a Smurf for yourself, and take care of it for eternity.
But since that can’t happen, the movie will have to do!
I LOVE LOVE LOVED this movie! My kids had fun and loved it too.
So pack up your kids, wear blue, and enjoy a Smurfy good time with old friends made new again!
The Smurfs make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Columbia Pictures’/Sony Pictures Animation’s hybrid live-action and animated family comedy, The Smurfs. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, they’re forced through a portal, out of their world and into ours, landing in the middle of New York’s 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.
