Gnomeo & Juliet was a pretty entertaining computer animated feature
Just saw this computer-animated feature with my movie theatre-working friend and we both enjoyed it. It's basically a parody of William Shakespere's "Romeo & Juliet" tragic play without the tragedy, of course, involving gnome lawn ornaments. One family wears red hats while the other wears blue. There's also a plastic flamingo, an active ornamental mushroom, and several likewise rabbits. Like in the Toy Story movies, these creatures only move whenever no humans are around. Oh, and there's many classic Elton John songs that dominate the score to great effect like hearing "Saturday Night's All Right for Fighting" during a lawn mower race or "Your Song" when the title characters are holding hands. And wonderful voices by various celebrities like Ozzy Osbourne, Hulk Hogan, Patrick Stewart, Michael Caine, and Maggie Smith. In summary, Gnomeo & Juliet was both quite highly amusing (if not completely hilarious) and very touching (as touching as this parody is allowed to be). So on that note, that's a recommendation. Oh, and I liked the 3-D effects too.
