CC Rocks the 'The Smurfs 2' Video Review

The little blue guys -- and girl! -- hit movie theaters today in The Smurfs 2, and CC and I got a chance to review the movie for's video feature Kid Rated, Mom Approved.

Wanna know what CC said? She's got the greatest line in her review. Check it out! And if you get a chance to see the film, let me know what you think.

In this smurfy sequel, Smurfette (voiced by Katy Perry) is feeling yes, blue, because it seems the smurfs have forgotten her birthday. That leaves her vulnerable for when Gargamel (Hank Azaria) wants to kidnap her and bring her to Paris -- his new home -- to get the secret recipe for smurf essence. He uses his new creations, the Naughties (who are not quite smurfs; voiced by Christina Ricci and JB Smoove), to lure Smurfette away. But Papa Smurf (the late Jonathan Winters) is not having it, and brings friends Patrick and Grace (Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays) to Paris to get Smurfette back.

My one-sentence review here: It's much better than the first one—and there's a sweet message about family and belonging.
