The Smurfs 2


I took the kids to see the Smurfs 2 last night.  I'm usually 'meh' on watching The Smurfs, but this one was GOOD.  It was a Friday night and we were the only three in the entire room watching. I guess all of the cars in the parking lot were folks going to see the more grown up movies. ;)

It was fun having the theater to ourselves because the kids could get up and dance their little bottoms off at the end of the show.  I didn't know Katy Perry was Smurfette until I looked up the YouTube trailer just now.



Have you seen it? Will you go? My kids think I liked it because Paris was the featured city. I DID like that, but it's not the reason I liked the movie. :)

Super Sunday Sync goes live tonight at 8pm. I hope you'll swing by and link up. It's my second week as the host, and I'd love to have you along (if you like blog hops!). :)

Happy weekend everyone!!

We will wait to rent it. That's what we did with the first one. Glad to hear it was good. I really didn't like Gargamel in the first one. He was hideous. I always like to look up who the voices where. That's part of the fun.

He's hideous in this one, hahahaha. With the first one I was 'eh, take it or leave it,' but I liked this one! :)

We like kid movies and watch them all the time. They're fun when you want to be entertained! Sounds cute!

mail4rosey said...

Pretty sure I'll watch them when the last one's grown and moved out too. ;) Thanks for stopping by. :)

Melissa Bo said...

I love The Smurfs! =)
Havent seen the movies yet, but they sound really cute!

Pat Hatt said...

Never watched the first one or this one, maybe one day

AJ Scrapbooking and Cards said...

This is a movie me and the girls would like to see. But first they want to see the new Percy Jackson and Airplanes. And I must say I liked the first Smurfs.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Wow, the whole movie theater to yourselves! THAT would be cool.

No we haven't seen either of the Smurf movies, and aren't likely to, unless some of the grandkids want us to watch it with them. (We'll watch just about ANYTHING if one of the kidlets asks.) We ARE looking forward to seeing Despicable Me 2, though.

mail4rosey said...

My mom loved the cartoon when I was growing up.

mail4rosey said...

If you only watch one, go for #2. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I saw Airplanes had started, it's gotten a lot of hype, it should be good. :)

mail4rosey said...

Sounds like some grandkids delightfully have their grandparents wrapped around their little fingers. As it should be.. :)

Happy weekend, Susan. Thanks for the visit. :)

alissa apel said...

I haven't seen the newer ones. Just the old school Smurfs. I liked them then though.

Heather @ Notes from the Nelsens said...

Love that the kids got up and danced at the end! What great memories! Glad you liked it too... makes the 2+ hours pass a little more easily. ;) Hope you're having a great weekend, Rosey!

Danielle @ We Have It All said...

I was curious about this one, I kinda wanted to see it. Glad to hear it was good!

Corinne Schmitt said...

We had fun at the first one. Glad to hear the second one is good. That will be a nice activity one of these days before school starts and when the weather is too hot to play outside.

Hi, we almost went to this one, but my 10 year old wanted to see Percy Jackson. It was fun one too. Glad you enjoyed your movie. My daughter now says she is a tween and to old for the Smurfs. ;P They grow up too quick. See you at 8 tonight too as I am guest hosting with you. :)

Jen said...

Maybe I'll have to take my niece to see it. :)

mail4rosey said...

That was my mom's fave when I was growing up (them and Woody Woodpecker, lol).

mail4rosey said...

You're right, last summer I barely survived a movie my daughter 'had' to see. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I think I'm officially a Smurf fan now. :)

mail4rosey said...

Our weather cooled down a few weeks back. It's not as cool as it was, but it never got hot again. We had like one week (maybe two?) of hot this year.

mail4rosey said...

Hurrah, happy you're guest hosting! :)

Kids certainly do grow up fast.

mail4rosey said...

She looks the perfect age to enjoy (your airplane partner, yes?). :)

Irish Italian Blessings said...

My daughter loved the first one so I bet she'll love this one too! I wonder if my son will get into it or if he's still too young though.

~ Noelle said...

we loved the first one, so we are excited to see the second one now ;)

Chatty Crone said...

Was it good - Andy wanted to see it. Have you seen Despicable Me 2? It was great. sandie

Juliana RW said...

Looks fun family film.

Kelly Blackwell @ Heres My Take On It said...

We haven't seen it yet, but we totally plan to. I love the smurfs from way back and we really enjoyed the first one. Thanks for sharing.

It's fun to be the only ones in the theater...when we went it was packed and all the kids are dancing around so was a blast!

Ramakant Pradhan said...

Just watched the trailer and it seems pretty neat.

Brian Miller said...

my mom took our boys and said it was not good...since my boys have already seen it...it is def not high on the list...ha...

Masshole Mommy said...

We saw the first one in the theater and both boys loved it, but I've asked them numerous times if they wanted to see the second one and neither of them seem to have interest. I may wait until it comes out on dvd before they see it.

mail4rosey said...

My 5 and 14 yr olds liked it. :)

mail4rosey said...

It's a good one. :)

mail4rosey said...

I did want to see it, but the kids nixed it for Smurfs. And majority rules. :)

mail4rosey said...

Def. fun for the fam. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for visiting. :)

mail4rosey said...

That sounds fun too! It was pretty late Fri. night and we went on a whim instead of going to bed. :)

LisaLisa said...

Glad to hear it was good, I too was curious and wasn't sure if it would stand up to the first one. We love the Smurfs, I can't wait to take the kids.

mail4rosey said...

Just saw your pics for today, those were great.

mail4rosey said...

Hurrah for moms who take the kids to the movies! :) We don't moms around who do that, but it'd be cool if we did.

mail4rosey said...

I forget what movie my daughter wanted to see, but it was a def. no. I think she asked for shock value, lol. I hope. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I recommend it highly, our fam. really enjoyed it. :)

My Journey With Candida said...

My Daughter grew up with the Smurfs on TV... I don't think it was a movie then but who knows. I remember she had to have their record too.

Pepper said...

I think I'm more excited to see this than my daughter is :). We'll try to see it this weekend.

mail4rosey said...

I didn't know they had a record, ahhahaha. I had a Dr. Suess on vinyl (Beetles Battle) and Sesame St. Disco. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Little cute smurfs, lol

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Now I would have just snubbed this but for you saying it was worth seeing. I'll probably not get to the theater, but I'll watch it when it's released on home video for sure.

mail4rosey said...

I'm glad I went. I've never been a fan, and now I'm all in. :)

Christy Maurer said...

I didn't watch the first one, but since you liked this one so much, I might have to check it out :) I'll probably do Redbox.

mail4rosey said...

It was def. a cute movie. I like the new smurfs too. :)

Anonymous said...

This was a cute movie my daughter and I saw it today....looking forward to part 3 if they make another one.

mail4rosey said...

I thought it was fun. :) Your frames were so cute today! http://lamannafamilyadventures.blogspot.com/

Theresa said...

We loved the first one! Definitely plan on seeing the second. We just haven't fit it in yet, but I am hoping to soon!

mail4rosey said...

We went on a whim, it was a nice treat. :)

Our Neck of the Woods said...

I haven't seen it, but it looks cute! My husband really likes kids movies even though we don't have any kids haha, so we may end up watching this one yet :)

mail4rosey said...

LOL! I will probably watch kid movies when my youngest no longer wants to too. I already beg him to put on The Lorax or Tangled, ha! :)

Maria said...

this looks so cute! steve is a big kid when it comes to movies and i bet he'd love to watch this with piper sometime! thanks for sharing. :)
xoxox

mail4rosey said...

We rarely get hubby to go to a kid's movie but we got him to go to Monster's University this summer. ;)

Brandy said...

LOVED The Smurfs when growing up watching Saturday Morning Cartoons. Sort of liked the Smurfs first movie, guess I will give this one a try since you seemed to have good feedback about it! I have the Wii game for Smurfs 2, the daughter says it's okay (the game) none of us have seen the movie yet.

mail4rosey said...

I just saw that game yesterday. We sent the Wii U to my son though (it's his). He left it when he went to college, and just asked for it to be sent down his way.

Terra H. said...

I didn't have plans to see Smurfs 2 because I didn't think it'd be good. May watch it when it comes out on DVD. Glad you liked the movie.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Terra. It was a happy surprise. I like those. :)
