  8. More on this film

Perhaps you watched Alvin and the Chipmunks and were convulsed by a deep need for another film like that. Or perhaps you specifically felt the need for a sugary family 3D film about the Smurfs – who are described in this film, incidentally, as "mythical", rather than fictional. Either way, this could be the film for you. The little blue Belgian creatures find themselves in modern-day New York, where they are pursued by the evil wizard Gargamel, played by comedy stalwart Hank Azaria. The opening voiceover says that the Smurfs come from a place that "knows no sadness". I don't know about that. I felt like plunging a razor into my tensely exposed wrist from the very first minutes. Of course, it's just a piece of summer silliness for kids. Only a curmudgeon would demand a piece of summer silliness for kids that is also good. Can Smurfs 2: The Smurfuel be far behind?
