Movie Monday: Gnomeo & Juliet

This one - you have got to see. It is so colourful and delightful it will bring a smile to your face. I had seen this movie at the beginning of the year, and ever since then had wanted husband to watch it as well. And, although his preference of movies may differ to mine, he enjoyed it just as much as I did - well almost as much.

It's the story of Romeo & Juliet, the family feud between the Montagues and the Capulets, yet throw Elton John's music into it, his love of all things flamboyant, Emily Blunt as Juliet, James McAvoy as Romeo... I mean Gnomeo, and let's not forget the voices of Ozzy Osbourne, Hulk Hogan and Julie Walters!

And the two main characters in question - yep, they're backyard gnomes. So too are all their friends and family members. All, except a pink, plastic flamingo.

I really can't say anything more about it other than, if you haven't seen this movie already, watch it now! And if you have already seen it, then it's definitely worth seeing again! It will put a smile on your face for the rest of the week - and you'll never look at gnomes the same again!
