Gnomeo & Juliet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh.My.Goodness.
Cutest movie of the century.
Like, I think I just fell in love with an animated garden gnome.

^^ this one. Gnomeo.

& I mean....he's played by James McAvoy.

um, hello.
(he's also in some of my favorite movies: Penelope, X-Men First Class, & Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe)


& Juliet is played by Emily Blunt--one of my favorite actresses.

(this is from Devil Wears Prada, but she's also in Wild Target, a movie that Brit showed me that I really liked)

Okay, back to Gnomeo & Juliet. Yes, it's an obvious play off of Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet" but it has a much better ending in my personal opinion. It's so cute. I mean, for crying out loud, the characters are GNOMES! Cute little ceramic garden gnomes that come alive after the humans leave.

There's lawn mower racing, secret rendezvous, talking flamingos & frogs, a romantic love story, & Shakespeare himself making an appearance as a bronze statue. HOW CAN IT NOT BE AWESOME!?

Seriously. You should watch it. Brit & I watched it last Friday night. I was FREAKING out afterwards. It's just so adorable on so many levels!!

Okay I'm done geeking out about garden gnomes.
