A mysterious vortex transports a race of little blue beings, no more than three road apples high, from their magical kingdom to the streets of Manhattan. Hey, kids, wanna hear some filthy smurfing words? "Plot." "Pacing." "Timing." Four smurfing mothersmurfers are given screenwriting credit. It takes forever for nothing to happen, and when it does, there’s no smurfing sign of style, wit, or joy. Raja Gosnell is credited with the direction; with Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mayes, and the voices of Jonathan Winters and Katy Perry. 2011.
