Movies 135: Gnomeo & Juliet
What better way to spend Valentines day, but to put a new spin on Romeo and Juliet with the lovely tunes of Elton John? If that's not enough, you have the wonderful voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as Gnomeo and Juliet.
Its a pleasing story for all ages. Its rated G. They're talking lawn decorations. Some ditties are just for adults. Its definitely a kid friendly show. And no, there is definitely a different ending to the movie with the help of a Flamingo and a water shoot'n frog.
The only downside of the movie is that the house is packed with crying babies and the like. So be warned. You might want to wait until this weekend to go. But really, the movie is a lot of fun. And you do want a fun Valentines day.
Storyline: Garden gnomes Gnomeo and Juliet have as many obstacles to overcome as their quasi namesakes when they are caught up in a feud between neighbors. But with plastic pink flamingos and lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find lasting happiness? Written by Walt Disney Pictures
