Gnomeo and Juliet: A Classic Love Story 

New DVD release

Shakespeare is by no means easy reading. But his storylines and plots have become so universal, such a part of our collective conscience, that they can serve as the basis for films that appeal to a large market--even if that market knows little to nothing about the source material.

Gnomeo and Juliet is the animated tale of two warring families of garden gnomes who go back to being inanimate yard dwellers when a human lays eyes on them.

Gnomeo is voiced by James McAvoy and Emily Blunt voices Juliet. The entire cast of voices gives this old chestnut some magic. There's something funny about hearing the voices of Patrick Stewart, Matt Lucas, Ozzy Osbourne or Hulk Hogan come out of animated characters' mouths.

Say yes, not gnome, to this one.
