The Smurfs is a 2011 animated-live action movie that the whole family can enjoy. The movie follows the adventures of the little blue creatures, known as the Smurfs, who are being chased by the evil wizard, Gargamel, from their magical village. It stars Hank Azaria as the villainous Gargamel, Katy Perry as the voice of Smurfette, and Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf.

The movie opens with the Smurfs gathered around a magic portal that leads to our world. Gargamel, who has been chasing the Smurfs for years, has finally found their village, and the Smurfs must flee their home to escape his wrath. In the chaos, several Smurfs are accidentally sucked through the portal and end up in New York City.

The Smurfs soon find themselves lost in the big city, but they are taken in by a young couple, Patrick and Grace Winslow (Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays), who are expecting their first child. The Winslows are hesitant at first to keep the Smurfs with them, but they warm up to their new guests and help them navigate through life in the human world.

As the Smurfs try to find a way home, they must also avoid being captured by Gargamel, who has followed them to New York. Gargamel and his cat, Azrael, are constantly on the hunt, but they encounter challenges at every turn. Azrael is constantly distracted by the city's sights, sounds, and smells, while Gargamel's bumbling attempts to track down the Smurfs usually end in failure.

Meanwhile, the Smurfs begin to learn about the human world and what it means to be a true friend. They experience everything from Central Park to Times Square and become enchanted by technology and the wonders of the big city. In one hilarious scene, Grouchy Smurf finds himself in a toy store and is overwhelmed by all the toys, but eventually settles on a toy version of himself.

The movie is filled with funny moments, including slapstick humor, visual gags, and witty one-liners. The Smurfs themselves are adorable and charming, with each character having their own unique personality quirks. Papa Smurf is wise and nurturing, while Vanity Smurf is obsessed with his appearance.

As the movie progresses, the Smurfs and the Winslows work together to find a way to send the Smurfs back home, but they soon discover that Gargamel has a plan of his own. He wants to use the Smurfs to become the most powerful wizard in the world, and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

In the film's climax, the Smurfs must band together to defeat Gargamel and save their village from destruction. The final battle is thrilling, action-packed, and will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Overall, The Smurfs is a heartwarming, fun-filled movie that will delight viewers of all ages. It's a perfect family-friendly film that is full of laughter, adventure, and a touch of magic. The movie's message about the importance of friendship and family values is something that will resonate with audiences long after the movie has ended.

The Smurfs is a 2011 animated movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 43 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 30.
