Gnomeo & Juliet review and giveaway

I finally got to see Gnomeo & Juliet. Yay!!



This is a movie I had really wanted to see at the movies, but it wasnt going to happen with Mr Magoo so it just didnt happen.
So when given the chance to review this as a DVD I was super excited (sadly doesnt take much to excite me these days)

Anyway we all know the story of Romeo & Juliet (and if you dont, google it and get out from that rock you have been living under)
Well the setting for this is 2 neighbouring gardens. Where Gnomeo's family is the blues and Juliet's family is the red who are at war with each other. And it does have a happy ending.

I liked this movie, it was full of bright colours, great aanimation, laughs and a fairly easy story line to follow. t there is a bit of a warning that if you aren't a huge Elton John fan than you may get a bit over the tunes in it
But all in all it was a cute spin on the Romeo and Juliet classic. And I loved the garden setting of it all.

Kids view. The Princess liked it, Mr Magoo didn't (but for him that is the norm)
The Miner was home when I was watching it and kept getting distracted and coming watch it too.




I have a copy of this DVD to giveaway.
So to be in a running to win leave a comment telling me your favourite flower or plant. (in keeping with the garden theme)
For another entry like me on facebook and come back and tell me.

Entries close Monday 25th of July 2011

I love Frangipani's too. I have them in huge pots around my garden and the scent from the flowers is beautiful as you sit under the patio.
Also love Camelia's too as they have a lovely perfume as well.

My Favorite flower is the Daisy! It has always been my moms favorite! The flower symbolism associated with the daisy is purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity. This describes my mom and it always makes me think of her when I see them! My mom is my best Friend!
