Gnomeo & Juliet

From the opening scene, when a tiny ceramic gnome walks out onto a stage to tell you that what you are about to see is a story that’s been told before… a lot … just as a giant hook creeps in from the wings to haul him out of there, you get a feeling that Gnomeo & Juliet has the potential to be a lot better than you’d imagine. A few minutes into the movie, after you’ve been bombarded with clever sight gags and some awful (but in a good way) Shakespearean puns, you can relax and settle in for a surprisingly good night at the movies.
