The Smurfs 2 : Now on DVD
We missed The Smurfs 2 in theaters so the kids were super excited to receive an early review copy in the mail the other week! The Smurfs 2 is available on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 2nd – just in time for the holidays!
Our kids had not seen the first movie in this series but they were totally able to follow the story line.
Evil wizard Gargamel played by Hank Azaria creates Hackus and Vexy, a pair of mischievous Smurf‑like creatures, hoping they will let him harness the magical Smurf‑essence. However, he soon discovers that he needs the help of Smurfette, who knows the secret to turning the pair into real Smurfs. When Gargamel, Hackus and Vexy kidnap Smurfette from Smurf Village and bring her to Paris, it’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy and Vanity to reunite with their human friends to rescue her.
It was fun for Harry and I to watch the kids enjoy the same Smurfs that we enjoyed as kids, but all high tech! The live action combined with computer animation is always fun. Our kids cracked up throughout the movie and there was just enough action to keep our 7 year olds on the edge of their seats.
The Smurfs 2 does carry a PG rating for action and ‘rude humor’. I am personally very particular about PG ratings. Our big kids are 7 years old and we are still really careful about what we let them watch. Even ‘rude humor’ is often a little too far for us to let them watch yet. Harry and I both felt the humor was very mild and was acceptable for our standards – that being said, I know every family has different rules and I wanted to point out it’s PG rating.
