YMMV / The Smurfs 2

  • Ear Worm: "Ooh La La" by Britney Spears.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Vexy.
    • Most of the cameo Smurfs, like Clueless or Greedy.
  • Moral Event Horizon: While Gargamel's still a funny guy, that still does not make it the least bit excusable that he threatened to let Vexy and Hackus die unless Smurfette gave him the formula for Papa Smurf's secret potion. Oddly, that just makes it easier for you to laugh when Hilarity Ensues at his expense, particularly during The Stinger.
  • Retroactive Recognition The only other reason for anyone to even watch this movie is to see a pre-Room Jacob Tremblay.
  • She Really Can Act: Katy Perry does an excellent job pulling some dramatic scenes as Smurfette.
  • Shipping: Grouchy and Vexy.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: Although its quality is still debatable, the story and characterization are more focused and less reliant on wacky antics (though there is still a decent amount of it).
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: Victor Doyle. The movie attempts to make him seem like a man who had been trying to be a good father figure to his stepson, even going as far as saying that his stepson's parrot was taken away because Victor was allergic to birds instead of Patrick. However, he was unapologetic when he nearly caused one of the children at Blue's birthday party to go into anaphylactic shock from eating a corndog fried in peanut oil and constantly insisted on assisting Patrick when his stepson made it clear that he didn't want him around.
