Like it or not many critics trashed it but The Smurfs made nearly $600 million worldwide at the box office so it’s no surprise Summer 2013 we have the sequel The Smurfs 2 and the first trailer has arrived for your Smurfin’ entertainment.
You may scratched your head in puzzlement on how a film destroyed by critics simple reason, us critics are not the age of the target audience, pre-teens. Yes The Smurf have been around for decades and some of us fortunate to have been that target age when it graced our televisions we adored these little blue guys but now we’re probably the Gargamels. We adults in the true Brian Connolly style ‘It’s A Puppet!’ The Smurfs 2, ‘It’s A Kids Movie!!!’ The trailer shows It’s a silly, ridiculous film with not a single funny bone to be found but if your 5 year old its the funniest thing they’ve ever seen, to be honest its funnier than a Adam Sandler film.

In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants — and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs — Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world’s greatest sorcerer. It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus – or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?
