The kids love......Gnomeo and Juliet.

I originally wrote this post a while back just before my laptop broke.

After watching dvd’s every day for a month in the Summer (because of our Summer pass), I was relieved that we didn’t have to go to the dvd place every day anymore.
Yes , I know we never really had to but we didn’t want to miss the chance to get a dvd most days and you could always only keep them for one day and then you had to go back to return them or renew them. So we just kept going every day and then we took new ones again, except for two times or so that we managed to get the Xtravision on the phone to renew the loans we had.
When we brought back the last dvd, I allowed Ixora to choose one dvd to buy. She chose one that she had never seen before. Gnomeo and Juliet.
And she loved it. Gnomeo and Juliet turned out to be a big hit with the kids:a dvd the kids would watch over and over again. I didn’t pay much attention to it at first, but since they love this dvd so much I decided to make a post about it.

I’ve seen most parts of it by now and I must say that I can understand why they love  it so much. I like it a lot myself which means that it is a real family movie.
It is an animated movie made in the UK and the story is about two gnomes who live in two gardens next to each other and who accidently meet and fall in love.
It’s about all the problems that this brings with it since they belong to two different groups of gnomes:  the reds and the blues who don’t live in peace with each other. It is somewhat of a parallel of the story of Romeo and Juliet, as you can see from the name of the movie, even though it is a totally different story. The movie is full of Elton John songs which I really like.

It’s a fun, romantic movie and I would definitely recommend it as a family movie.
Have your children watched this movie? What do they think about it?

I'd love to hear from you.
