The Smurfs review

“I’m Papa Smurf. I have 99 sons and one daughter – nothing weird going on there…” sneers Hank Azaria’s wizard Gargamel at the start of Raja Gosnell’s (Scooby-Doo) CG/live-actioner based on Peyo’s Belgian cartoons.

There is something weird going on, not least the sexing up of Katy Perry-voiced Smurfette when the critters are transported from their village to New York.

Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays are underused as the real-lifers and with the Smurfs oddly forgettable the coast is clear for Azaria and sidekick kitty to nick the movie.

Diverting and weird, but harmless.
