THE SMURFS 2 - Gargamel creates Hackus and Vexy, a couple of evil Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties, to harness the magical Smurf essence. When he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants and that only Smurfette can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and takes her to Paris. There, with the help of the Smurf essence, Gargamel hopes to use the Eiffel Tower as an energy-generating antenna to finally return home. It is up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to the human world and seek help from their friends Patrick and Grace Winslow

Animated characters mixed with real actors... I've never understood the attraction to it and I never will.
