When it comes to family movies, I want to be able to sit back with my girls and laugh. From the first opening scene of the new Gnomeo and Juliet, I knew this movie would be a hit. As we sat down together to watch, my girls’ full attention was sucked in and I knew they were in love. We are a family that loves music and with a soundtrack of music from Elton John, there were plenty of times Kelsie and Aubrey were up and dancing and cheering on some mischievous lawn ornaments.
From a director of Shrek 2 comes your chance to step into the secret world of garden gnomes
— Gnomeo & Juliet. Perfect for the whole family, this fresh and funny makeover of one of the
world’s most timeless stories features music from Sir Elton John, and the voice talents of Emily
Blunt, James McAvoy and Sir Michael Caine. Caught up in a feud between neighbors, Gnomeo
and Juliet must overcome as many obstacles as their namesakes. But with flamboyant pink
flamingos and epic lawnmower races, can this young couple find lasting happiness? Complete
with hilarious never-before-seen bonus features, Gnomeo & Juliet is an out-of-the-ordinary
animated comedy your entire family will love. We just gnome it!
In high school, I participated in several Shakespeare plays and knew I had to see Gnomeo & Juliet and it has become a movie our family has now watched numerous times. If you are looking for a fun but yet innocent cartoon that family of all ages will enjoy, Gnomeo & Juliet is for you. Each character has their own unique and fun personality and don’t be surprised if you find yourself laughing MORE than your children. This unique spin on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet makes it perfect and brings comedy to a play of tragedy.
