I was really looking forward to seeing this movie in the theater back in Feb. 2011.  Somehow we ended up not catching it on the big screen and had to wait until it came out on DVD.  As the name implies, it’s the classic story of Romeo and Juliet. Strangely enough Shakespeare adapted to little garden gnomes works.  I thought the movie was really well done and entertaining.  The vocal cast is composed of A list talent, including Patrick Stewart, Michael Caine, Emily Blunt, and Jason Statham.  The soundtrack for the movie is packed with Elton John songs, which I love, another charming addition to this movie.  Cute gnomes and Elton John songs, you have a winning combination.  If you can make kids enjoy Shakespeare, you know it’s not going to be high brow entertainment.  But if you are a kid at heart you should enjoy this movie.  Keep your eyes open for the gnome sporting a V style thong bathing suit…hilarious.
