- 1 hr 44 min
As a follow up to the first movie "The Smurfs" loosely based on the comic series of the same title, "The Smurfs 2" is a 3D animated film geared towards children that tells the story of Smurfette who begins to have nightmares about giving away her fellow Smurf family to the evil Gargamel who is seeking to take them captive. When her Smurf friends begin planning a surprise party for her birthday, Smurfette accidentally mistakes their secrecy for hostility, and begins to think that she is no longer welcome among them. Gargamel, who is performing his sorcery in Paris, finds that he is running low on his magical powers which he gains from the Smurfs. To solve this problem, he attempts to conjure up a plot to kidnap Papa Smurf by first abducting Smurfette with the help of his creations, called the "Naughties." A smurf who sees this happen immediately informs Papa Smurf who continues on to recruit the help of Patrick Winslow in New York City. Meanwhile, Smurfette, who is witnessing the slow and impending death of the Naughties who rely on the Smurf power to live, begins to commiserate with them and finally gives into Gargamel's demands for the secret formula. The moment that he changes the Naughties into Smurfs, though, he puts them into the Smurfalator to rebuild his power. As Gargamel continues to feed off his renewed power, it seems that overcoming him has become impossible until the Smurfs and used to be Naughties team up to save the day.
