The Smurfs call upon the human couple who helped them in the first film played by Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays, who now have a son named Blue Jacob Tremblay. Katy Perry’s grandma steals the spotlight at ‘Smurfs 2′ premiere The big addition to the live-action cast is Irish actor Brendan Gleeson, taking a break from tough-guy roles to play the bungling stepfather of Harris’ character. Though it’s hard not to wonder why no French actors were used in the cast, what with the Paris setting and all. Mathieu Amalric wouldn’t return calls? Directed by Raja Gosnell, who also made the first film, the new Smurfs has a screenplay credited to J. David Stern,
David N. Weiss, Jay Scherick, David Ronn and Karey Kirkpatrick. There are quick references to Scarface, The Empire Strikes Back, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and perhaps others presumably to keep the parents in the audience awake, though an incongruous passing joke on no means no is the wrong kind of jolt. But there’s also a joke about Smurfs farting in the bath,
so maybe it evens out. Current Daily Show host Oliver seems to be having the most fun among the voice cast, though there is an awful lot of talent that goes largely untapped, including Paul Reubens, Jimmy Kimmel, B.J. Novak, Kenan Thompson and Shaquille O’Neal, as their characters are in only the short framing scenes set in the Smurf Village. As in the first film, many of the best moments here come from the playfully spiteful exchanges between Azaria’s Gargamel and his sort-of talking cat Azrael, with a liveliness the Smurfs themselves somehow lack.
Even though the Smurfs films never quite took full advantage of Winters’ antic comedic gifts in the role as the softly wizened Papa Smurf, the end credits feature a dedication to the late comedy legend for making the world a smurfier place. The acknowledgment is a classy touch. Has there been a more mediocre summer for children’s entertainment in recent memory? OK, I liked Despicable Me 2, which I even thought was an improvement over the original. But Monsters University didn’t add anything to Monsters Inc, and Epic was anything but. And if you have your hopes up for next month’s Planes — well, all I’m going to say is, scale them back. But even if you’re desperate for a film to take your little ones to, you’re still better off waiting for that Disney release then settling for The Smurfs 2, an annoying 100 minutes or so of charmless homunculi. If you remember the old cartoon, or the original 2011 movie, the Smurfs are a bunch of tiny blue-in-the-face folks who live in the woods and sing a song that goes La la la la la la and always seems about to turn into the J. Geils Band’s Centerfold.
