About the Film
The greatest love story ever told, starring...garden gnomes? In the upcoming Gnomeo & Juliet, Shakespeare's revered tale gets a comical, off-the-wall makeover. Directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) and showcasing both classic and original songs by Elton John, the film features the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as Gnomeo and Juliet, who have as many obstacles to overcome as their quasi namesakes when they are caught up in a feud between neighbors. But with plastic pink flamingos and thrilling lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find lasting happiness? Two garden gnomes, Gnomeo (voice of James McAvoy) and Juliet (voice of Emily Blunt), try to avoid tragedy and find a happy ending to their star-crossed love affair when they are caught up in a feud between neighbors.
Fun and silly, but not a blockbuster
This is really fun film, a lot of great jokes for all ages, and lots of fun British/English/UK (pick your term) cultural references. Also another nice way to show the very young some of Shakespeare's work. I loved seeing the references to Stratford on Avon,made even more great by our visit to the town the very next weekend (is there anyone else other than Patrick Stewart that can do Shakespearian voice overs :-) given all his recent stage work it was perfect casting). It got the vote of my six year old. Enjoy
Great family fun
