DVD Mini Roundup: Gnomeo and Juliet
But the really charming thing that draws you into the movie and reinvents the familiar story is the fact that they are garden gnomes. They seem to obey the Toy Story rules where they must act like solid unmoving creatures when people are watching, but in their absence have drag races on lawn mowers and have to obey many laws of lawn ornaments, decay, polishing, chips, and ultimately the possibility of breaking = death.
There were a few times my attention waned, but in general it makes the most of its 84 minute run-time. If you have kids, I'm sure you'll be watching this sooner than later. Make them be that kid in 9th grade that says "this is just like Gnomeo & Juliet" when their teacher introduces the original. 4 of 5 stars/lambs
