In the film the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village. They tumble from their magical world and into ours – in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.

I don’t see why they have to set the movie in New York City. The cartoon’s setting was just fine, with their Smurf village made up of mushroom houses and its surrounding wilderness. I’m not going to get too passionate about it because…its The Smurfs, but it looks like another Garfield.
