Day 7 – Favorite Animated Feature
Gnomeo and Juliet
The neighboring gardens of Montague and Capulet are at war, but the gnomes, Gnomeo and Juliet, are in love. [IMDB]
An edgy Shakespeare adaptation like no other, this animated musical transports the classic tale of forbidden romance between two star-crossed lovers from warring families to the unlikely yet hysterical world of garden gnomes. Featuring songs from legendary recording artist Elton John, this movie features the vocal talents of Emily Blunt, James McAvoy, Jason Statham, Patrick Stewart and Michael Caine. [Netflix]

Juliet: He’s a Blue!
Gnomeo: She’s a Red!
Featherstone [pink plastic flamingo ]: And I’m Pink – who cares!
We found this movie to be totally delightful! Grand animation, good music, good PLOT (again, a movie with a plot), love the voice casting (and oh là là — Jason Statham is one of the voices – LOL!). Don’t miss the extras! It’s been several months since we saw this movie and I still have this desire to add Gnomes (one red, one blue) and a couple of pink flamingos to my garden. Hehehe
Featherstone: A weed by any other name is still a weed.
