Film Synopsis:  
From a director of Shrek 2 comes your chance to step into the secret world of garden gnomes 
Gnomeo & Juliet. Perfect for the whole family, this fresh and funny makeover of one of the world’s most timeless stories features music from Sir Elton John, and the voice talents of Emily Blunt, James McAvoy and Sir Michael Caine. Caught up in a feud between neighbors, Gnomeo and Juliet must overcome as many obstacles as their namesakes. But with flamboyant pink flamingos and epic lawnmower races, can this young couple find lasting happiness? Complete with hilarious never-before-seen bonus features, Gnomeo & Juliet is an out-of-the-ordinary animated comedy your entire family will love. We just gnome it!

This is a cute movie. It's fun to see all the gnomes come to life when the humans are in the house or leave for the day. I liked the lawn mower race they had between the blue gnomes and the red gnomes, then the lady of the house goes to mow the lawn and the mower falls apart. That was pretty funny. When Gnomeo & Juliet meet for the first time, they are both fighting over a flower and flirting with each other. Then they look into each others eyes and fall in love.

The Blu-ray also has plenty of special features including 2 alternate endings.
