LET'S GET THIS OUT of the WAY RIGHT OFF the TOP: REGARDLESS of the REVIEWS, the BASIC NOTION of THIS FILM -- FROM the HIDEOUS "PUN" of IT'S TITLE to the IDEA of DUMBING DOWN a SHAKEPEARE CLASSIC, to the WHOLE CONCEPT of BUILDING an ENTIRE FILM AROUND ANIMATED GARDEN GNOMES (THE TRAILER TRASH EQUIVALENT of OUTDOOR SCULPTURE) -- ARE ALL INHERENTLY REPELLENT. 


AND the EXCESSIVE/INTRUSIVE MARKETING of THIS FILM (with TRAILERS AHEAD of EVERY MOVIE SINCE NEW YEAR's, TV SPOTS EVERY 27 SECONDS on BASIC CABLE and POSTER, BILLBOARDS and BUS BENCH ADS EVERYWHERE) DOESN'T HELP EITHER. FROM the CONTENT of THOSE PROMOTIONS, GNOMEO & JULIET LOOKS ALARMINGLY LIKE ONE of the MOST CHARMLESS ANIMATED MOVIES of ALL TIME, MAX FLEISCHER's MISBEGOTTEN 1939 CARTOON VERSION of GULLIVER'S TRAVELS (IMDb LINK).

IF WE'RE WRONG ABOUT the MOVIE ITSELF...SO BE IT. 

BUT THE CONCEPT, TITLE and AGGRESSIVE MARKETING ARE CERTAINLY ALL RAZZIE® -WORTHY...
