I took an 11year old and 9 year old who were only mildly engaged--both left for the bathroom or snacks at least twice....I was distracted on my phone a few times because there were times when the storyline dragged a bit....I also thought some of the jokes were corny---they tried to make them hip and relevant to 2013-however I don't need my smurfs sounding like obnoxious teen MTVers
I did enjoy overall the story line-Gargamel, Patrick, Grace, Victor and the Smurfs acting/voicings----If The Lion King, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo and UP are 5s this movie is a 3

If you watched them as a kid and liked them , than I would say, go see them. My daughter enjoyed the first one as well as the second movie.

Took my 5 yr old Grandson to see it. As Smurfs were a part of my Sons life, I was looking forward to seeing this.
My Grandson loved it!! I, unfortunately, thought it was drawn out and boring.. actually fell asleep during part of it..
It's for children, he loved it and that's all that matters.. Grandparents, just suck it up and watch it and enjoy your grandkids reactions!

Truly every one of the intended laughs was based on the suffering of another, from a kid nearly dying of a peanut allergy reaction at the beginning to the villain screaming like a little girl when he is mauled by a gargoyle at the end. The villain's ultimate goal is to torture and murder his own children and all of the Smurfs, in a machine that extracts their life force. He gives his children just a drop of life force when they are literally dying and begging him for food. Smurfette must ultimate choose between letting her newfound sibling die or betraying her entire race. Truly a dark film, not at all appropriate for children of any age.

I found the joking about peanut allergy totally inappropriate.
One of my daughter has a peanut allergy and had several close encounter with death, most recently because she hate peanut cookies at school and was afraid to ask about the ingredients in order to blend with others.
This is not the kind of stuff people should mock in a movie like the smurfs, it teaches the wrong attitude towards people with food allergy to kids.
