Film Clip- Damage
I thought Gnomeo & Juliet was a really cute little movie. There were a lot of bits that were funny to the grown-ups in the room which was clever. I thought the music was fun and perfect for the story - you could definitely tell that Elton John had a huge part in the making of this film! Ozzy Osbourne as the Fawn of Darkness cracks me right up. There were actually several times that various characters made me giggle but Featherstone the pink plastic flamingo is easily my favourite!

My kids have all watched it at least a dozen times since it arrived at our home last week. I asked them what they thought of the movie and here is what they told me...
Owen (age 7): It is awesome because it is awesome! Gnomeo is my favourite because he is an awesome person.
Aiden (age 9): I love it because it is awesome. My favourite part is the big battle when the fence falls down. Oh wait my favourite favourite part is when Gnomeo & Juliet first meet. I like the music. My favourite character is Gnomeo.
Olivia (age 4): I love Gnomeo and Juliet because they love each other and they live in the garden but they make everyone friends and it is funny!
I am certain we will be watching Gnomeo & Juliet many more times in the future :).
