Garden gnomes Gnomeo (voice of James McAvoy) and Juliet (voice of Emily Blunt) 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?
I thought this movie was pretty good. I was expecting it to be a lot funnier, than how it really turned out. There was a few funny scenes, but not much. Of those, I might have laughed at one or two things. So, needless to say, it really wasn’t what I expected it to be, from watching the trailer. It was more cute, than anything else.
Basically, it’s a love story for kids. If you’re thinking about if your kids will like this movie or not, I can say they will love this movie. I just think it was made more for kids, than adults.
I would go into more detail, but I really don’t want to spoil anything for anyone. So, I’ll just say… if you haven’t seen this movie, it’s worth watching, at least once. I’m sure your kids will probably want to watch it more than once, though.
