We were so excited when we checked the Post Office and found this movie on Blue Ray in our mail. We came home and did family movie night like most Fridays. We LOVED this movie. So much so we watched it again on Sunday.
These little garden gnomes spin Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet like we have never seen before. It was brilliantly funny. Left me wanting to laugh some more. You have the Red and Blue gnomes. They represent the Montague’s and Capulet’s. I have to say I love the frog on the red side. She makes the movie with her quirky behavior. You also meet a flamboyant Flamingo that helps them over come the obstacles that they are faced with.
It’s been awhile since all of us have laughed all the way through the movie. The kids understand the movie the whole way through. As we tucked our youngest into bed he quoted ” and parting brings such sweet sorrow”. Seriously funny! Our kids loved the lawn mower races between Gnomeo and Tybalt. They are trying to convince there father they need lawn mowers now.
It is an all star cast Gnomeo is voiced by James McAvoy. Juliet is done by Emily Blunt. I love her. Ozzy Osbourne voices Fawn and Patrick Stewart plays Bill Shakespeare. The music is all done by Sir Elton John and it is fantastic!! My kids are asking for me to order the soundtrack. Which is a rare in this house.
Here is some videos
The never before seen features are just as good. Our favorite was Elton Building a Garden. You can also see alternate endings and and deleted scenes.
Down to the nitty gritty the run time is about 84 minutes perfect length for little ones. It retails for about $39.99 US dollars for the 2 disc Blue Ray combo pack. It is worth every penny.
We HIGHLY recommend this movie for all. It is a great family friendly movie that all can watch together.
DISCLOSURE: We received this DVD/Blue Ray combo pack at no cost. The opinions expressed in this post are mine and mine alone.
