My Thoughts:

This was definitely a movie my kids were bugging me to take them to see in theaters and we just didn’t find the time to do it so I was excite for the opportunity to review this title and the kids were ecstatic when it came! It even held my 2 1/2 year olds interest which is pretty hard to do because my kids don’t really watch television that often. The kids were glued to this one! I’ve gotten to watch it once but have had the pleasure of listening to it more then a few times now because the kids have added it to their list of movies they want to watch over and over again. The storyline is a little bit different then the original Romeo and Juliet play obviously as a children’s movie Romeo and Juliet do not commit suicide at the end but at some point they do think that Gnomeo has been smashed and are mourning his loss. There were a few funny lines that obviously were geared towards the adult audience making it a fun flick to watch with the kids. Definitely a family friendly film fun for both kids and adults and one I would suggest for your next family movie night!
