I know, I know. I said I would try to do a post a week at least, but the last couple of weeks have been REALLY stressful with college, a little drama, a little comedy, and a lot of stuffy noses.

No one cares about that though, here’s a review of Gnomeo and Juliet.

This is an animated movie that came out in February 2011, by Touchstone, with a bunch of British garden gnomes sort of kind of reiterating Romeo and Juliet.  There’s a metric crap ton of huge names for the actors, Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, Jason Stathom, Ozzy Osborn, and a LOT more, and they are GOOD actually, I normally sort of groan when a big name star does voice acting because it’s just typically NOT them, but hearing Michael Caine do a moronic gnome, is GENIUS.

The story takes place in the UK, and this is not really relevant to anything except the fact that Mrs. Kai and myself thought it was a British made movie.  It’s not, by the way.  Some quirky humor, some slapstick, some really ROFL moments, and of course the love scenes make up the rest of the movie. The soundtrack made me giggle because it’s all high orchestrated 80s pop rock, which is awesome.

OK OK, now you are all wondering what I give this movie, right? I say a solid 8/10 for family viewing, 6.5-7/10 for solo.  It’s VERY cute, and the kids will LOVE it, if you’re just a movie buff going to see it, it’s nothing that hasn’t been done, but you will laugh, I guarantee it.
