* [[AFatherToHisMen A Father To His Smurfs]]: Mostly seen in this movie and the sequel where Papa Smurf in the English movie dialogue track is referred to as having "99 sons and one daughter" by his adversary, and himself saying that his little Smurfs are like family to him.

** He also gets booted off the stage while playing with his band, the Brainiacs, but he doesn't mind it at that point.

* ProductPlacement: So blatant and constant that it approaches a sublime art form all by itself.

--->'''''Flick Filospher:''''' The cleverness of ''The Smurfs'' never ceases to astonish! Gosnell plays with product placement, launching an extended sequence set in the famous toy store FAO Schwarz with a chase set in the plaza outside . . . while at the same time completely avoiding getting even the tiniest sliver of a shot of the dramatic glass-cube Apple store situated in that very plaza. (By spectacular contrast, Sony computers litter the film.)

* UsefulNotes/StatueOfLiberty: A Smurf version of the statue appears in the remodeled Smurf Village during the end credits.



* UnexplainedAccent: Why does Gutsy speak in a Scottish accent? Probably same reason why Vanity speaks in a refined upper-class English accent in this movie.
** Clumsy, on the other hand subverts the trope, at least compared to the cartoon; in the cartoon he spoke in a Southern accent, but in this movie he doesn't.

The film is notable not only for being a HumanFocusedAdaptation (though to a much lesser extent than you'd think from watching the previews), but also for containing some of the most brazen uses of ProductPlacement to date. It was intended to be the first in a trilogy of movies, with its first sequel released in 2013 and its second to be released in 2015. However, due to the performance of ''Film/TheSmurfs2'', Sony decided to cancel the third movie and instead [[ContinuityReboot reboot the series]] as an all-CGI animated movie series with the first movie ''Smurfs: The Lost Village'' coming out in 2017.

* Adorkable: Clumsy when ever he acts a bit shy or embarrassed. Complete with the fact that Clumsy compared to the other Smurfs seen in this film appears to act like a kind optimistic child in the Live-Action films. He is even given floppy ears which the other Smurfs aren't seen with.

* AdaptationalBadass: While Papa Smurf has always been badass in the original comics and cartoons. He actually goes so far that he throws a spear behind Gargamel after he's freed from Smurfette. He also acts more aggressive when it comes to protecting the other smurfs including having to get himself caught by Gargamel in the library and telling them to just go.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalHeroism: Smurfette comes off as far more capable than in the comics and animated series. To a lesser extent, Brainy is less of a self absorbed {{Jerkass}} and at times actually helpful to the plot.
