Gnomeo & Juliet Blu-Ray Review

When I saw previews for this, I was so excited!  I was just dying to go to the theater and see it.  Of course, with the economy being the way it is and other issues, my lack of funds prevented me from being able to take A with me to see it.  So, I anxiously awaited the release to DVD and Blu-Ray.  Normally Disney releases blow me away and what's better than a spin on the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet?

Well, I'm sad to say that I was disappointed.  I was let down, cold, alone in a corner shivering from the abyss of emotions I experienced at not being able to find joy in this one thing that I had placed all of my future happiness upon: Gnomeo & Juliet being a great movie.

It was cute, but that's about it.  I was beyond bored and my kids were bored and wouldn't sit through it.  There weren't even many silly parts for me to giggle about.  I didn't like the voice of Juliet as it was not cute enough and although Gnomeo's character was kind of cute and endearing, it couldn't carry the whole movie.

Long story short, there are the blue gnomes and lawn figures on one side of the fence and the red gnomes and lawn figures on the other side of the fence.  Gnomeo and Juliet meet, decide to hang out despite the repercussions involved with their families, fall in love and....

Anyway, I did enjoy some of the music being that it was from Elton John (Lion King rules!) and how excited was I that Ozzy Osbourne was one of the voices?
