Really enjoyed this one, good message behind it and found myself laughing out loud a few times. I swear Norm, my gnome, moved to the edge of his shelf so he could watch the movie too.. mysterious things they are
Thoroughly enjoyable with a lovely subtle message behind it - that the kids may or may not get - we all really enjoyed it.
Excellent movie. Who would have thought that Elton John could bring Romeo and Juliet back to the kids in such a fun way.
good movie,my kids loved it.
cute musical story about two gnomes in love with great songs to add some sparkle. kids really loved this one
Loved it! The kids will love it, I loved it (but I am a big 50yr old kid)!!
Excellent graphics/cartoons, plenty of one liners and referrals to other movies . . . of course, they stayed to the Romeo and Juliet theme, but plenty of humour and play on words..
Worth watching for young and old!
Bright, colourful, energetic, cute music - kids loved it!
Better than I thought it would be, quite amusing, something the whole family can watch
My kids are in love with this movie!!
Great for fans who are familiar with Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet - lots of references.
Also great for fans of old school Elton John love songs.
Kids will probably love it. Music is good - lots of Elton John, which can be either a good thing and a bad thing, but here is a good thing.
*SPOLIER ALERT* Despite the all star cast, this was very disappointing. There is only so much Elton John you can take in a movie soundtrack, and the scene where Gnomeo gets smashed by the truck had my daughter (5) in tears ... took far too long to get to the bit where you find out he is still alive.
entertaining movie. There were lots of damaged areas on the DVD so missed several key scenes which was disappointing
Fast paced and fun, but not many laugh out loud moments. Soundtrack by elton was a good use of his back catalogue. Marginally better than Rio.
Delightful.... BUT .... stopped half way and we had to try and replay several times, so it took about 4 hours to finally get the the end.
Terrible, just terrible! There are much better films for kids than this half-formed nonsense.
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Will be adding this to the collection.
My children enjoyed this movie
the kids loved it. I will admit it did has some good one liners. loved the frog's mushroom joke lol .Always love trying to pick the owners of those animated voices. Michael Cain Dolly Parton and Elton were easy but the others I struggled with.
not one of the greats, but the kids seemed to enjoy it
Unsual movie but had some good messages in it, my 8 year old thought it was good and stayed glued to the TV, so that's saying something.
It is a great litle movie. Light entertainment, kids would enjoy it, however a lot of the humour would be better understood by adults, such as little sight gags and one liners. Quite a few medium funny bits, not sidesplitting but good.
Loved this movie, I think more than the kids!
The whole family enoyed this one.. even my husband (very unusual)
The previews look alot better then the actual movie. It is a good kids movie but you know what will happen next and my son was easily distracted during the movie as it didnt really capture his attention
great little movie, which is suitable for young & old.. kids enjoy the characters & the adults enjoy the jokes. my 2 yr old niece loved it & i didnt mind watching it again with her a few times
Was pretty good. The Flamingo is hilarious, though he touched our heart with his sad story.
Good fun movie but not in the same league as Tangled or Toy Story. Was amazed my 2 year old sat and watched most of it so must have been pretty good!
This movie was funny. A great way for a love story to be told.
A light hearted and very enjoyable family flick, one to be placed on your list.
Absolutely loved this movie. Totally not just a kids movie, plenty of jokes for the adults thrown in too. Brilliantly cast. Fabulous animation. I will be buying this one to keep. Definitely recommend this one!
Cute retelling of the Shakespeare classic Romeo and Juliet. Good animation and a nice soundtrack are bonuses to this enjoyable family movie.
Lovely. Lots for the adults as well as the kids. Great Elton John soundtrack adds to the fun and feeling.
Very cute. I appreciated all the Shakespeare in-jokes and background references. Excellent British cast.
quite a funny movie, alot of one liner jokes that the kids wouldn't have gotten, but they still enjoyed the movie!
our grandchildren , and my wife and i, really loved this film...10 gold stars!!!!!!,
Great movie for the kids and the grown ups. Lots of funny parts.
great movie, funny aswell
Great kids movie. One of the best 3yrs and up.
So very cute, the kids will love the bright colours and the story, the adults will love the hidden humor, great story much as you expect but a nice twist any way.
myself and my 3 year old both love it. She has watched it at least ten times over a week. We were both happily singing along.
Very funny and uplifting!
HUGE hit with my little girl, 2 & 1/2 and I sang along the whole way through to all of Elton's tracks while I cleaned the house!!!
highly recommended for all ages, great show.
A few chuckling moments. Somehow not at funny as I thought it would be.
very cute! wonderful family movie :0
My kids watched this over and over!! They were sorry I had sent it back!
Was too childishly cliche, nothing too exciting
The animation was good, the script was fairly lame, the soundtrack, completely destroyed the movie. Elton John is ok in small doses, however, it's horrendous when every song, background music and action scene tune in a movie is a modified EJ song.
Don't add this to your cue...
great movie for kids and adults.
Kids just loved this one, I thought it had a few clever bits but not enough to hold my attention
We really liked this movie, I thought it was a very touching love story which automatically draws you in from the start.
7 year old son's review: "It's funny and really, really good." 5 yo and 3 yo also captivated.
The two kids and I watched this last night and it was fabulous! As usual it had the 'adult' lines that only made sense to me but the kids giggled and cried along with me! A real family movie that I will buy when it gets to the shops!!
Cute movie, and some fun to have. Not one i would rate highly or watch again. Elton John's involvement is very noticeable and of course he also does the soundtrack.
Cute movie and great Elton John music.
What a great little movie for young & old alike! Better ending than the original perhaps :)
our kids just loved this version of Romeo and Juliet, the soundtrack using Elton John's music adds a great twist - our 5 year old has just been in tearsm as Shakespeare had intended the tragedy to be...
Was a pretty good movie, my husband and i laughed as much as our 4 year old son. Its def a movie we want to add to our collection.
Not one of my favourites that is for sure, kept the kids entertained though for about half of the movie but they did get restless a few times whilst watching this. Good twist on a classic story though.
Kids loved it and I enjoyed it too! Loved the soundtrack and the subtle (and not so subtle) references to Shakespeare. Very clever...a great family movie
not fantastic, but entertaining kids movie. Great for Elton John fan's...all the songs in the movie are his!!!
Gnomeo and Juliet was wonderful with all the music being from Elton John. My 12yr old enjoyed this but I found I enjoyed it on a different level, knowing the music. One of those really good family movies that can offer all family members something different.
Very entertaining! A good balance of fun, laughter and fights with a touch of romance. The humour in some of the lines is amazing - just like the title of the film!
The killer lawn mower part was a bit of an overkill though.
Lots of warm moments, plenty of laughs and some good graphics.
Kept my 6 year old with the Flu happy through 2 sittings - huge thumbs up in my books
Cute movie for the younger members of the household although odler members may enjoy it as well. A couple of those "adult" type jokes that often appear in these types of films but they always go over the heads of kids. The kids laughed hysterically in a few parts. I would recommend it for a family movie night, my family enjoyed it thoroughly.
My 9-yr old daughter and I adored this movie. It's funny smart and clever. And it has warring gnomes (red and blue team) - can't get better than that. The voices are spot on (esp the two main characters) and we both cried towards the end (not going to spoil it). Juliet as a ninja is too cute for words.There's none of the Pixar moral message either. Very Highly Recommended.
Worst movie ever, don't bother watching
