About 2 nights ago my family and I watched Gnomeo and Juliet. I thought it was the cutest and funniest thing ever but I think the only reason I liked it so much was because in my english course online I studied Romeo and Juliet this year so it was funny to see how the producers put it into "gnome" form. I'm not sure if a little kid would've gotten as much enjoyment out of it as I did but I'm sure they would still like it.
Just like in Romeo and Juliet, the two gardens' gnomes did not like the other side's gnomes. I guess it started from the feud between the owners of the gardens. The difference here is instead of Montagues and Capulets, its Blues and Reds but the cool part was the owners last names were Montague and Capulet so the producers brought that in there.
Its one of the most famous love stories so of course they are going to have lovey-dovey talking, googley eyes, and hand holding. It doesn't get anymore than that except at the end where (SPOILER) Gnomeo and Juliet kiss (Told ya it was a spoiler).
My favorite parts of this movie was where they would quote lines from Romeo and Juliet but mess them up a little bit for this movie-
Juliet (up on her pedestal talking to herself)- Oh Gnomeo, oh Gnomeo, are we really doomed to never see each other again? Why must you wear a blue hat? Why can't it be red like my father's? Or green like a leprechaun? Or purple like, um...like, uh...like some weird guy? (My thoughts ran to Justin Bieber here)
Featherstone- A weed by any other name is still a weed.
I hope I have convinced you to see this movie or at least read Romeo and Juliet for yourselves because it IS and awesome story. Now since I don't want to tell you TOO much about this movie, I will just show some pictures :)
This is the "masked ball scene" if you read Romeo and Juliet
Tybalt. Isn't this guy just the cutest little villain you have ever seen?? Especially with that blush!
This movie is kind of like Toy Story, the gnomes have to freeze whenever a human is near so they will not be discovered.
