Since Papa Smurf is telling the story of the movie, you would hope that you get to see actual movie clips, and you do. I think it's really nice to coordinate the two so well as it gets you in the mood to go watch the Smurf's movie after you finish playing. Plus, if you haven't yet seen The Smurfs, you will get to learn more about the movie before you go see it. The cut scenes of the story are clips from the movie. The quality of the scenes is quite good. You also get Gargamel as one of the dancing characters and he really creeps me out. He makes a really good Gargamel, for sure. It would have been amusing if he had Azarel dancing with him though! There are also several of the smurfs as your dancers including Clumsy, Papa Smurf, and Smurfette.
The music selection is very important in a rhythm game. There are 23 songs available to play. You'll recognize a lot of them as hits throughout the years, like "Walk This Way" and "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." Fair warning though, the lyrics aren't exactly as you remember them. "Who Let the Dogs Out" is now "Who Let the Smurfs Out" and other words have been changed accordingly. For some reason, "Walk This Way" just seems really dirty when you change the words to be "Smurf This Way"!
