FROM MTV MOVIES: “The Smurfs” are three apples high, as the legend goes, and in this week’s big-screen adaptation of the beloved children’s cartoon, Hollywood takes a stab at re-telling the tale for a new generation of kids.
The 3-D tale (with some CGI) is voiced by an A-list cast, including VMA-nominated Katy Perry, George Lopez and Alan Cumming, to name a few. In the movie, the Smurfs land in the Big Apple, where they end up staying with expecting newlyweds played by Neil Patrick Harris and “Glee” star Jayma Mays. Of course, they’re also trying to stay as far as possible from their nemesis, Gargamel, played by Hank Azaria.
The little creatures find themselves in some silly situations as they try to navigate the big city. When MTV News caught up with Harris, Mays and Azaria in New York, we asked what they would do if they suddenly found themselves having to survive the city in Smurf-sized bodies.
