A Great Intro To Shakespeare

Ok, now we're talking. Moviefone's Family Film Guide tackles Gnomeo and Juliet from exactly the right angle. Of course it's silly. Of course the ending is changed. It's a movie for children, for pete's sake. Good info as well about any parts that might be scary or inappropriate for children (it's G rated, so not really), whether the 3D is worth it (as expected, it's not) and even some talking points to work on with your kids after the movie. I would have loved if the reviewer included something about "...and to encourage their interest in Shakespeare, you could go here here and here." Instead she ends with "go get some Elton John music and have a dance party."
