‘Smurfs 2’ Trailer: When Good Smurfs Go Bad

Smurfs 2

I fully understand that I’m not the target audience for this kind of movie, but who is? Five year olds born in 1901 who somehow grew up in 1972 and now magically live in 2013?

If the first flick didn’t scramble your brains the right way, director Raja Gosnell is back with Smurfs 2, and Neil Patrick Harris has returned alongside Hank Azaria as Gargamel. This time, the wizard invents faux-Smurfs called Naughties that lure Smurfette into a life of petty crime and evil. Apparently the plan works (or Smurfette discovers black hair dye), and the gang has to rescue her.

Unsurprisingly, the trailer doesn’t have a single laugh in it other than the colorful-lights-moving-quickly variety. Check it out for yourself and feel free to slow clap:

The Smurfs 2 cometh July 31, 2013.
