The first full-length trailer for The Smurfs is reminiscent of other cartoons-gone-live-action, like Alvin and the Chipmunks — and I don't mean that in a good way. Neil Patrick Harris and Glee's Jayma Mays star as the couple who accidentally happens upon the tiny blue creatures when they escape from their village and end up in New York City.
The smurfs are voiced by Katy Perry, George Lopez, and Alan Cumming to name a few, and as expected, there's no shortage of using the word "smurf" as a substitute for just about anything near a swear (the movie's tagline is "where the smurf are we?"). I will say, though, that I got a kick out of seeing Hank Azaria all dressed up as Gargamel. Even if it's a far cry from the cartoon we grew up with, I have a feeling that kids will get a big kick out of this one when it's released in August. Watch the trailer for yourself when you read more.
