Here's what the critics are saying:

Unlike that earlier live action/animation hybrid ("The Smurfs," 2011), however, which had a cheery, almost campy New York fashion-industry setting, “The Smurfs 2” is mostly loud and unfunny. — Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News

There's a dark and gratuitously negative vibe to "The Smurfs 2" that makes it unfit even for the undiscriminating young moviegoers that made the first one a hit. — Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle 

As lousy as it is, I won't discourage any parent from going to see "The Smurfs 2." After all, the film's big take-away message is at least partially noble: "love is [not] conditional." — Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com

The trouble with this stunted sequel is that the doughy, blobby-hatted Smurfs are mostly window dressing for an abrasive slapstick bash. — Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
