You Gno you want this

"I am not illiterate, my parents were married"

One of the first lines in the movie Gnomeo and Juliet had me laughing. Clearly the kids don't get it, but that is the point. Someone has remembered that parents sometimes have to watch these films over and over for years.

I enjoyed the sounds, the gnomes 'tink' like cement gnomes would. I laughed at the gardens of each house, to me, people don't just have one gnome, they have a garden of decorative things, and these gardens are exactly that. Over the top, ridiculous.

The dancing moments are a hit.

I am not going to tell you what happens, other than my favorite characters were the frog and the flamingo, see how you go guessing the names of each of the characters voices, they all do a smashing job...bless them to bits.

Is it suitable for all kids? No, preschoolers may be scared at times, the words idiot and shut up are used once each, there is a small reference to love not working out and ending in divorce...and the removal of the flamingos loving partner. But our sensitive little Popps was ok, Immy asked to go home about 78 times so it was clearly of no interest to her. Popps didn't really get the story line that much, but it that didn't seem to bother her.

All up, this is a great new film, perfect for primary school aged children and their parents.

  14. Yayyyyy thanks for the recommendation. We had a great fun day at the movies with our boys (4 & 2 years) yesterday. It was a great fun movie which we all enjoyed. The boys munched their way through a large box of popcorn & I was delighted with my choc top! Gotta say though, a trip to the movies these days aint cheap! Thanks again, Miss Meg xx
