Did You Know?
The sign on the bus indicates that the movie takes place in Stratford-Upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, who wrote Romeo & Juliet, which is what Gnomeo & Juliet is based upon.
Red Good Gnomes:
The story you about to see has been told before. A lot.
My boys LOVED it!!!
I took my twins (age 5) to see this today and they were THRILLED to
bits!! I disagree with the reviewer that says it's a "girls'" movie! My
Hot Wheels/Bionicle loving sons, loved it and they didn't think it was
girly one bit and neither did I!
I also did not think it was a Toy Story rip off as there have been a
ton of movies featuring toys that come alive long before Toy Story
anyway. Yes, garden gnomes and decorations come to life but that's were
the similarity between the two ends.
I did not go in expecting to see a cartoon version of Romeo and Juliet
so I was not disappointed one bit and thankfully, this story does not
share the tragic end of the original tale. I did like the characters
quite a bit, I LOVED how the gnomes were fragile, I loved the clay
clinging sounds they made, how realistic the textures were.. it did not
feel like a "dime a dozen" animation at all!! It was bright, it had a
solid plot, and it was going somewhere (unlike let's say, Alpha and
Omega or Happy Feet).
My boys were begging as soon as the titles rolled to watch it again so
we just might be returning to the movie theater with some friends this
weekend. I wouldn't mind seeing it myself and I was glad we did go see
it because after I read the previous review, I had my doubts if it was
going to be any good but it was!!! My boys "got it" much better than
say, Shrek… so it will appeal to a younger crowd as well in my
