0 Gnomeo & Juliet DVD Release - May 24th! {review}

 I never had a chance to see this movie in theaters so I was so excited to be able to review it before it's release on May 24th!  This is a brilliant take on the classic Romeo & Juliet tale.  I loved it.  My husband loved it.  Most importantly, my kids loved it.  There is so much creativity involved.  Every time I look outside I feel as though my garden gnomes are just posing.  Patiently waiting for us to turn our backs so they can continue their fun!  Really great movie that everyone should add to their collection!
