Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Smurfs 2 (sequel to 2011's The Smurfs) is packed with pratfalls and comic violence, but no one is ever seriously hurt, and the moments of peril won't feel very scary, even to most young kids. There's lots of mischief, and Gargamel is a big comic meanie, as usual, though his treatment of his child-like creations the Naughties feels pretty cruel at times. Expect some inherent sexism in the damsel-in-distress storyline and some brief ogling of Smurfette and Vexy, especially when Vexy sings a slightly suggestive song ("Ooh La La") at the end of the movie. And, of course, no Smurf movie would be complete without fake swearing using the word "smurf" in the place of stronger words ("holy smurf," "son of a smurf," etc.), plus some jokes about farts and someone being injured in the "smurfberries."

Sexual Content

Some minor ogling of Smurfette and later Vexy, the female Naughty, by the male Smurfs. One comic scene in which a male smurf says he's going to show his bottom and offers a half-moon. Patrick and Grace make lovey-dovey talk at one point and say "tres sexy" and then kiss chastely. Vexy sings the Britney Spears song "Ooh La La" at the end of the movie, with lyrics that are slightly suggestive ("Baby come with me and be my ooh la la.")

Violence

Slapstick throughout, with lots of comic falls and near misses. Some electrocution, a biting animal, a few crotch shots. Gargamel tosses Azrael out of his moving carriage at one point. But no one is ever seriously hurt. Gargamel is very mean to his Naughties, sometimes yelling loudly at them, and at one point he says that he'll let them die of hunger. He also captures Smurfs in cages and essentially tortures them, though they don't seem to be in pain.

Language

Lots of fake swearing using the word "smurf": "son of a smurf," "holy smurf," "I nearly smurfed myself." Plus one very brief pun: "that was ducked up!" One "oh my God" and a couple uses of "brat."

Social Behavior

The central message is that family isn't necessarily biological, but made up of people who love you, support you, and participate in your life, even if they're not perfect. Also, that character is what makes you who you are, rather than your past or your origin. On the downside, the damsel-in-distress storyline reinforces the old-fashioned notion that women need rescuing.

Consumerism

A Sony tablet is part of the storyline, plus Facebook and YouTube.
