'The Smurfs' trailer: Katy Perry goes blonde... and blue

the-smurfs.jpg "The Smurfs" trailer is here, and we're immediately reminded of "Alvin and the Chipmunks."

That's not the worst thing that could happen, though. We were actually pleasantly surprised (like, really surprised) that we actually enjoyed the 2007 live-action-meets-animation family comedy. Maybe going in with low expectations is the key.

"The Smurfs" looks cute enough, and it certainly has a star studded cast. This is technically the second trailer for the flick, but it is the first time we get to see live actors Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria and "Glee's" Jayma Mays, along with a bit of dialogue from the little blue guys.

The rest of the cast includes the vocal talents of Katy Perry, George Lopez, Alan Cumming, Jeff Foxworthy and even Wolfgang Puck as Chef Smurf.

The movie doesn't hit theaters until August, but watch the trailer below. We think it's pretty obvious which one is Mrs. Russell Brand.
