In the animated comedy adventure "Gnomeo & Juliet," Shakespeare’s revered tale gets a comical, off-the-wall-makeover. Directed by Kelly Asbury and showcasing both classic and original songs by Elton John, the film features the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as Gnomeo and Juliet, who have as many obstacles to overcome as their quasi namesakes when they are caught up in a feud between neighbors. But with a plastic pink flamingo and thrilling lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find lasting happiness?

Critics Consensus: While it has moments of inspiration, Gnomeo and Juliet is often too self-referential for its own good.

Creative, much less tragic take on classic love story.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Gnomeo & Juliet is a Shakespeare-inspired animated comedy that features some of the same overall themes as Romeo and Juliet, minus most of the bloodshed and the tragic ending. Although there's still serious enmity between the Montague and the Capulet gnomes, the violence isn't as prominent. A couple of gnomes do get smashed (or maimed), but most of the destruction is to the gardens themselves. Language is limited to insults and slang like "shut up," "codger," and "daft." Mature tweens who enjoy the story may be ready for the real play or more serious Shakespeare adaptations.
