When I first saw the trailer for the animated film Gnomeo and Juliet, my initial thought was that Hollywood must really be desperate for story lines. The film, directed by Kelly Ashbury, and produced by none other than Sir Elton John, is yet another take on the famous William Shakespeare tragedy Romeo and Juliet. This version of the heart wrenching play focuses on the love affair between two ceramic garden gnomes who hail from rival gardens in London, England, fall in love, and eventually bring their feuding backyards together ending (how else?) with a dance party.
