How do you introduce young kids to Shakespeare? “Gnomeo & Juliet” has a good idea: tell the story with garden gnomes! And change the ending, of course. But that’s not such a bad thing.
ONE OF THE MOST CHARMING AND KID-FRIENDLY ANIMATED OFFERINGS IN QUITE A WHILE.
The music in the film is a real highlight. Elton John scores the movie and even acts as a producer. His welcomed touch is everywhere. And once again, a great score and catchy tunes help drive the narrative even pulling in older toe-tapping viewers.
The delightful star-studded voice talent helps as well with the likes of Michael Caine along side Ozzy Osbourne, Dolly Parton, and even Hulk Hogan. Such an ecclectic combination is worthy watching, especially when not thrown together for a cheesy Super Bowl commercial. The appearance of so many wonderful stars lending their voices is a credit to director Kelly Asbury, whose previous works have each been nominated for the animated Oscar.
Shakespeare has never been this accessible, and “Gnomeo & Juliet” gives the youngest among us a fun and memorable introduction.
