Why it Rocks
- Really solid animation and realistic details and textures.
- The titular leads are really likable and relatable.
- Really funny cameos from Stephan Merchant and Patrick Stewart.
- Heartwarming moments with Gnomeo and Juliet themselves.
- Featherstone (voiced by Jim Cummings) is a really solid comic relief.
- Touchstone proves they still have the magic that was once used in Splash and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
- It is a clever parody of one of Shakespeare iconic stories Romeo and Juliet with a little Toy Story vibe to it.
- Overused pop-culture references.
- The Sequel they did is kinda weak
