Product Description

It's the age-old story of forbidden love between feuding families, but Shakespeare's classic tragedy Romeo and Juliet becomes quite a comedy when the young lovers in question are different-colored gnomes from backyards on opposite sides of a tall wooden fence. Lured out of their respective gardens by wanderlust and an exotic orchid, Gnomeo (James McAvoy) and Juliet (Emily Blunt) meet and instantly fall in love. Their forbidden love blossoms with a little help from a plastic pink flamingo named Featherstone (Jim Cummings), and soon life-threatening lawnmower races ensue, an epic battle is staged, and wisteria trees and gnome hats are hacked to bits in the process. Shakespeare himself (Patrick Stewart) makes an appearance and declares that, while this story bears a marked resemblance to one of his own, he's not sure it will end in quite the same way. Shakespunian nuggets of wisdom include "A weed is by any other name, still a weed," and that fairness demands "a hat for a hat," and of course the philosophical question "What's in a gnome?" just has to be asked. Executive producer Elton John's penchant for over-the-top showmanship finds a perfect home in the gnomes' elaborate backyard sets, and his musical score is an effective blend of classic and original songs, including a new collaboration with Lady Gaga called "Hello, Hello." Other legendary musicians lending their talents to the voice cast include Dolly Parton and Ozzy Osbourne. This film is funny, engaging, and, with the possible exception of one particularly scantily clad gnome, appropriate for the whole family. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, creative animated spin on the Bard Nov. 23 2011
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
OK, lets get the negative stuff out of the way. As its professional
critic detractors are so eager to point out, this isn't as good as Toy
Story, or the vast majority of Pixar's outlet. It's not as good as
Lion King, It's not as good as Shrek. Or Wallace and Grommet.
And it does weirdlyover-rely on the music of Elton John (who
executive produced).

Fine. But that doesn't mean it can't be a cute, enjoyable, witty spin
on Romeo and Juliet, with two backyards full of garden gnomes (and
other garden features like frog fountains) at war with each other, and
star-crossed lovers from each side falling in love in spite of it all.

And who can dislike the voice cast;? James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael
Caine, Maggie Smith ' some of Britain's very best bring great character and
comedy to their parts, as do, in their own weird way Ozzy Osborne and
Hulk Hogan in cameo roles (For that matter who could resist any film
that brought such a surreal bunch of voices together?).

Yes, this isn't an all-time classic. But I think we've gotten so
spoiled by being in a golden age of cartoon features that it's too easy
to dismiss a good solid, fun effort like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars very cute Oct. 31 2011
Format:DVD
it was a very cute movie. I quite enjoyed it. Lawn mower races were funny. Although the frog was a bit odd, but they needed that in the movie too. I wish they went into more detail as to why they hated each other based on their colors.

5.0 out of 5 stars adored by my daughter Sept. 26 2011
Format:Blu-ray
My 6 year old daughter kept watching this movie again and again on a cross-Atlantic airplane ride. She then insisted that I buy it for her. She keeps watching it and keeps adoring it. It's a really cute film that I enjoy watching with her. The Elton John music in the film is fabulous.
