I have to admit, if it wasn't for my daughter's love of all things Toy Story, the last time that I would have seen a movie in the theater would have been... well... let's see...
Apparently so long ago that I can't remember it. Is that sad?
But, thanks to both of my kids, even though I haven't watched most of the top-grossing movies of the year (or even heard of many of them), any film that is made for the entire family to enjoy is one that will most likely come across my radar.
And with the upcoming release of Touchstone Pictures' Gnomeo & Juliet (in theaters February 11th in 3D!) I have no doubt that all of us will have a blast checking out this cute and comical adventure.
By taking Shakespeare's classic love story and giving it an off-the-wall makeover, Gnomeo & Juliet stars a pair of unlikely movie stars - garden gnomes - in this revered and well-known tale.
From the same director who brought us Shrek 2, Gnomeo & Juliet features the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as the main characters who have to overcome as many obstacles as their namesake original duo... but this time there are plastic pink flamingos and thrilling lawnmower races mixed in the feud between neighbors that threaten to keep this young couple apart.
Will they ever find lasting happiness?
As an added bonus, Gnomeo & Juliet showcases classic and original songs by Elton John, someone who is no stranger to providing beautifully-entertaining music to Disney movies ("Can You Feel The Love Tonight" from the Lion King will forever be a favorite of mine). This movie is sure to be a box office smash hit with adults, children and families everywhere!
Have you seen the trailer on television yet? It looks great! Just take a look...
Fun, right? This movie is rated G and remember, it's hitting theaters on February 11th in 3D!
But, thanks to the generosity of Disney, two people will be able to really get ready for the adventure and excitement of Gnomeo & Juliet because...
