Consensus: Like its predecessor, Smurfs 2 may amuse small children, but it's largely an unambitious, charm-free collection of slapstick gags and one-liners.

Yes, this is the point in the summer when I outsource my critical judgment to my kids.

Not so much of a film as it is a collection of images and sounds that bludgeon you.

"The Smurfs 2" probably isn't any worse than you might expect. On the other hand, it's almost certainly not any better.

It would be too much to say that there's a good movie somewhere inside Smurfs 2 looking to get out. But it wouldn't be too much to say that sometimes, the movie we do have tries harder than we might expect.

Smurfs 2 isn't quite so good at appealing to adults, but it's harmless fun for the littlies.

Reluctant parents: you don't need to tell your kids that you won't love them if they like "The Smurfs 2." Instead, you can silently judge them until either you and/or they simply can't bear the thought of talking to each other.

The trouble with this stunted sequel is that the doughy, blobby-hatted Smurfs are mostly window dressing for an abrasive slapstick bash built around a tiresome kidnap plot ...

The pacing is fine but the dialogue is trite. Older children and adults will also find the main plot and Smurf gibberish tedious, redeemed only by Azaria's performance and a sideplot involving Gargamel.

La la la-la la, The Smurfs 2 sucks. There's nothing too juvenile or stupid for this movie, no joke that's too low-brow or cartoonish. With… More
