'Gnomeo & Juliet' 2 x double pass giveaway.

Today I took my very own 'hot shot review team' out to see Disney's latest animated epic.  Yes the two biggest pinks and I headed off to our local Regent Multiplex to see Gnomeo & Juliet in 3D.


It was our first real experience of 3D and it was all just a tad exciting for Miss six and Miss four.   All in all it's a rather sweet and humorous reflection of the great Mr Shakespeare's own epic tragedy - but of cause with a more suitable 'feel good' ending. (No more spoilers than that here.)


My own three top things about 'Gnomeo and Juliet' are; the music, the adorable British accents and the fabulous Nanette (you'll have to go see it for yourself to work out why - but let's just say she's green and rather froggy.)  The storyline is nicely done and keeps you involved. There are also a few fabulous one liners that will crack you up - even if you're not a ceramic gnome!


And now for what's really important.  The opinions of my crack review team themselves:

The Big Pink Said: "I really liked the Pink Flamingo and Gnomeo's Mother - there were so funny.  I loved how bits of the movie came out of the screen at me and how the Gnome danced on the computer  - that was so funny."

The Middle Pink Said: "I loved Juliet the best and the rabbits were cute.   It was funny and not boring at all - I really like the chocolate mummy gave me  too."

Here is another review if you'd like to check out a more professional perspective.
 Full Review - The Bard Performed by Gnomes.

  1. We're looking forward to seeing this film and if it's a free ticket - even better!
    We have frogs in our garden. Yes, real life little green frogs that ribbit and ribbit all night long. They're probably having a little party out there on the kids play equipment :-)

  4. I can safely say my garden is very boring.
    I've seen one garden around the corner where they have a gnome statue that is "taking a poop" right in the middle of it.
    I have only come across worms, slaters, and spiders in my garden, though. Unfortunately, I have only come across these because I have been looking for a skink to replace the little guy my son found a year ago that recently passed away. If anyone finds a live skink in their garden, mail it to me? Hehe.

  5. "Chalky" the caterpillar. He was found today by my girls and consequently named. He's currently watching Annie with them at the moment but has promised to be set free back in the garden later today.

  6. A baby Blue Tongued Lizard who like WILE E COYOTE is a survivor despite significant odds. Falls from great heights down the garden path, survives the blower as my husband clears the cut grass from the garden path and has successfully hid from our bub a worthy roadrunner type having reached the terrible two's.
