What the Critics say
Pete Hammond Perfectly situated for Valentine's weekend, this wonderful animated tale uses William Shakespeare's inspiration and Elton John's music to tell the story of gnomes that overcome the prejudices of their gardens to forge a bond.
Ofeloa Legaspi Note the jarring attempts at Shrek–style pop-culture savvy, for example, when all the film needs is more of that ceramic-shattering originality, simplicity and heart that children (and their parents) will easily enjoy.
C. Fuchs Clearly derivative of the Toy Story and Shrek flicks but understanding and emulating what made them so successful, Gnomeo & Juliet might not be terribly original or novel, but it's entertaining enough.
Tomatometer While it has moments of inspiration, Gnomeo and Juliet is often too self-referential for its own good.
