The Smurfs 2

The whole cast returns once again in this sequel which takes place in Paris.  Gargamel hatches up a new plan and creates two "Naughties", which are characters that are like Smurfs except that they are grey, not blue.  Smurfette takes the center role, who is kidnapped by Gargamel and the whole movie revolves around the rescue mission made by Papa, Grouchy, Clumsy and Vanity with a dash of "you're not my real father" subtheme.  It is not as over the top as the first movie which makes it more bearable but the humor is still quite lame and predictable.  However, the movie falls into the annoying trap of misunderstandings and "oh look, the characters just missed finding each other" which makes the whole movie seem uninspired.  There isn't many good moments but the Smurfs get a lot of screentime which is surprising.  It is not a horrible movie but it isn't a good one either, very mediocre and will stretch your credibility a bit.
