    • Excerpt: Smurfs 2 obviously suffers from the lowest common denominator approach inevitably taken on such a “strike while the iron’s hot” sequel. It just didn’t even realize that the iron had already cooled off.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: not excruciating like the previous film
  • Jim Dixon @
    • Excerpt: The “Sesame Street”-like lessons may be a bit heavy-handed, but “The Smurfs 2” still delivers some well-executed slapstick, and the special effects are as dazzling as the first movie’s. Children should find this fast-paced comedy/fantasy engaging, and parents will for the most part find it painless.

    • Excerpt: I am haunted by the crazed desperation in Jayma Mays’ eyes. She may have been blinking out a Morse-code SOS, but I can’t be sure…

    • Excerpt: Sunday 2:00 p.m.: I saw “The Smurfs 2.” Five miles away, my girlfriend vomits. Coincidence?
  • Jason McKiernan @ Next Projection
    • Excerpt: The Smurfs 2 is what happens when the sugar crystals turn gooey and the candy turns into a gelatinous mass. It’s gross, unappealing, and only vaguely resembles the bright and tasty treat you loved as a kid.
