Gnomeo and Juliet Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review



Synopsis: 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 story 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 flamingoes 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!

Review: The concept behind Gnomeo and Juliet is a loose re-telling of the Shakespeare classic with different colored families of lawn gnomes.  Obviously parents need not worry...this one won't end quite so morbidly!  The film is full of great, contemporary music, even from the likes of Lady Gaga.  The characters are great and the story is lovely.  There are definately lessons to be learned and tons of comedic moments to enjoy, in classic Disney fashion.
