From Amazon.co.uk

It's the age-old story of forbidden love between feuding families, but Shakespeare's classic tragedy Romeo and Juliet becomes quite a comedy when the young lovers in question are different-coloured gnomes from backyards on opposite sides of a tall wooden fence. Lured out of their respective gardens by wanderlust and an exotic orchid, Gnomeo (James McAvoy) and Juliet (Emily Blunt) meet and instantly fall in love. Their forbidden love blossoms with a little help from a plastic pink flamingo named Featherstone (Jim Cummings), and soon life-threatening lawnmower races ensue, an epic battle is staged, and wisteria trees and gnome hats are hacked to bits in the process. Shakespeare himself (Patrick Stewart) makes an appearance and declares that, while this story bears a marked resemblance to one of his own, he's not sure it will end in quite the same way. Shakespunian nuggets of wisdom include "A weed is by any other name, still a weed," and that fairness demands "a hat for a hat," and of course the philosophical question "What's in a gnome?" just has to be asked. Executive producer Elton John's penchant for over-the-top showmanship finds a perfect home in the gnomes' elaborate backyard sets, and his musical score is an effective blend of classic and original songs, including a new collaboration with Lady Gaga called "Hello, Hello." Other legendary musicians lending their talents to the voice cast include Dolly Parton and Ozzy Osbourne. This film is funny, engaging, and, with the possible exception of one particularly scantily clad gnome, appropriate for the whole family. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

 

Set in the gardens of fair Verona Drive, we witness the blossoming romance of two young gnomes, Gnomeo (James McAvoy) and Juliet (Emily Blunt), amidst a turf war between the reds and the blues. Between the high-speed lawnmower chases and stealth missions, hearts (and hats) are broken, loyalties are tested and garden boundaries drawn, but can true gnomance conquer all? When your best friends are an over-excitable frog, a lovelorn flamingo, a loyal mushroom, a team of Bond-esque bunnies and a dopey fawn, there's a shedload of fun and adventure around every plant pot!   The miniature monuments are voiced by massive household names including James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Matt Lucas, Maggie Smith, Michael Caine, Stephen Merchant, Ashley Jensen, Jason Statham and Ozzy Osbourne to gnome a few! Featuring classic and original songs by Elton John and directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) Gnomeo And Juliet is a great love story......with a very small difference.

  • Director Kelly Asbury

5.0 out of 5 stars fantasic family fun 7 May 2011
By nsanks
Format:Blu-ray
Just watched this film with my 5 and 3 year old boys. They were captivated from the start. An amazing, funny and fantasic film.
Lots of adult humour and the addition of Elton John songs is great. It is most definately the best animated film i have watched recently. Well worth a watch for all the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gnomeo and Juliet is #1 16 April 2011
By mummy spoon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to say this is one of the best kids films I have seen and I have seen alot!
The story is very loosely based on the shakespeare play 'Romeo and Juliet' and adults may get some of the little nods to it but kids will just enjoy it for what it is.
There are two gardens competing with each other in a life long feud between both the home owners and their garden ornaments, they are the reds and the blues, sworn enemies they are never to mix. The battle continues on and when a red(Juliet)and a blue(Gnomeo) fall in love, things are set to get even worse. Can true love end this bitter war ?
From beginning to end Gnomeo and Juliet is a thrilling adventure with plenty of 'laugh out loud moments', I can't wait for the Dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall in love with this! 28 July 2011
By Chloe S "Chick Lit Chloe" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This film boasts a fantastic cast and is even better because it is virtually all British! Some of our biggest names lend their voices to the film, and pretty much all of them are instantly recognisable when you hear their dulcet tones come across your telly. Playing the lead roles of Gnomeo and Juliet are James McAvoy and Emily Blunt. Now, I actually didn't recognise their voices not having seen them in anything else before, but I think they did a fantastic job with their roles. Both perform with gusto, delivering performances which perfectly suit their characters. McAvoy's Gnomeo is tough, butch and determined to find for the Blue Hats, yet we quickly see his softer side around Juliet, who is wonderfully voiced by Blunt. Her voice is clear, crisp and plays well against McAvoy's rougher Gnomeo.

Ashley Jensen plays Nanette the frog, who is Juliet's companion (the equivalent of Juliet's nanny in the play) throughout the film. Jensen is perfect for the role, her joyful voice capturing the frog's vivid personality and has a really playful element to it that works so well in a children's movie. Her and Blunt make a great team, and I enjoyed their scenes very much. Michael Caine is instantly recognisable as Lord Redbrick, Juliet's dad, you'll recognise that voice straight away! I love Stephen Merchant's take on Paris, Juliet's set up boyfriend by her dad. His voice is just funny without trying, and his scene where he starts to sing 'Your Song' to Juliet but is morphed into an Elton John character in Nanette's mind is simply brilliant, and very funny! Finally, I have to say Jason Statham is perfect as Tybalt, the butch Red Hat gnome always fighting to beat Gnomeo at whatever cost.

As you can see, it has a fantastic cast and they all do an excellent job.

5.0 out of 5 stars If Pixar were British..... 6 Dec 2011
By Bob C
Format:DVD
At first I didn't think this film would interest me and my family, but I have to say I was wrong and I'm glad I took my friends advice.

A lovely film on a par with Disney / Pixar / DreamWorks and one I know we will keep watching again and again. Great cast, great music and a film with a lot of heart.

Summary; A film for the whole family to enjoy again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, creative animated spin on the Bard 23 Nov 2011
By K. Gordon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
OK, lets get the negative stuff out of the way. As its detractors are
so eager to point out, this isn't as good as Toy Story, or the vast
majority of Pixar's outlet. It's not as good as Lion King, It's not as
good as Shrek. Or Wallace and Grommet. And it does weirdly
over-rely on the music of Elton John (who executive produced).

Fine. But that doesn't mean it can't be a cute, enjoyable, witty spin
on Romeo and Juliet, with two backyards full of garden gnomes (and
other garden features like frog fountains) at war with each other, and
star-crossed lovers from each side falling in love in spite of it all.

And who can dislike the voice cast;? James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael
Caine, Maggie Smith - some of Britain's very best bring great character and
comedy to their parts, as do, in their own weird way Ozzy Osborne and
Hulk Hogan in cameo roles (For that matter who could resist any film
that brought such a surreal bunch of voices together?).

Yes, this isn't an all-time classic. But I think we've gotten so
spoiled by being in a golden age of cartoon features that it's too easy
to dismiss a good solid, fun effort like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun ! 27 Oct 2011
By Claire
Format:Blu-ray
From the same stable as Shrek...and it shows ! Great fun, even had my 16 year old in stitches.
Some subtle jokes thrown in for the adults, but don't expect to recognise 'Romeo and Juliet' much in this except for the play on names ! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A very funny film for ALL the family 14 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All the family loved it, my five year old watched it 3 times all in one go, she couldnt stop laughing. Even my 2 year old loved it. I haven't enjoyed a film like that in a while. It great to have something to make you laugh rather than Cry!!!!
There are parts that only adults would 'get' which shows they have catered for all ages.
