Kiddo liked it quite a bit, but I didn't, but that's okay. I'll grab it when it drops below $20.

Whenever an entire film and story is based on a simple and rather poor pun, I kinda just shake my head and wonder.

It is amusing to imagine the uninspired hack that pitched the story in the first place: "Well see it's really this timeless tale of a totally epic and tragic romance. But with gnomes. Just wait til you here the title!"

And some even bigger fool said, yes, please let me invest millions of dollars of my money toward making that half-baked dream into a brightly colored steaming pile of poop.

@the big picture
Have you even seen it? I went to see it at the cinema because my friend chose to see it, and I thought it would be awful. In actual fact it's very enjoyable, well animated, has a stellar cast and is genuinely funny. It may be an old story done to death, but this film is unexpectedly definitely worth watching.

Good to see that Disney is providing 7.1 tracks for all theatrical 7.1 releases, unlike Fox :<

Maybe I'll go see this tomorrow (I guess Mexico drew the short straw this time), if I like it I'll probably get it soon, if not I can wait until a price drop or special offer.

@thewerepuppygrr

You got me. I haven't seen it. And re-reading my comment, I see I may have been a little harsh. Though I can't help being turned off by the title and the cutesy-commercial premise and artistic style.

That said, I'm glad to hear the movie was entertaining, and I'll be sure not to run from the room if my fiance happens to netflix it. Instead, I'll take a deep breath, open my mind and let those little garden gnomes bring some light and warmth into my cold heart.

I appreciate the lack of backlash in your comment there, cheers. And hey, we're all guilty of harshly judging movies before we see them.

Not saw this movie yet, but I will. The thing I find sad, is that they re-used the Romeo & Juliet story... Why not making a movie about gnomes, like the series "David the Gnome" or the sequel series "Wisdom of the gnomes" all under the writing ideas from Wil Huygen and Rien Poortvliet,? The first book "Gnomes" was so rich and complete, any studio might comes with a very good story idea...

@everyone Touchstone Pictures is another movie brand used by Disney along with Walt Disney Pictures. It's mainly used for the more adult films and this is Touchstone's first G movie.

This is a great movies kids will love and adults would find to be pretty good. I just watched this yesterday lol.

Looks like the movie was produced by non-Disney company Starz Animation and only distributed by Buena Vista. If you look at the case art, there isn't a single Disney or Buena Vista logo

I was able to sit in on a Starz empolyee specific screening, and, before the film, they were hailing it as the best non-Pixar movie since Shrek 1... Which sounded like a very odd thing for them to say... Until I realized that they were completely correct in that very oddly specific statement. It's a really good film. Not Pixar, but really good. Give it a chance, it's worth a see. Even if only to see the funny Elton John character and his composed music sequences.

Originally pixar declined this, Disney's own studios would have done it (but for a lot more money due mostly to them being top heavy on management with the potential for all the drama it can create), so it got passed up north. There was a big fight of sorts because Disney originally promised Elton John a movie he can be more deeply involved in, right after Lion King, and then kicked him to the curb. Now they did a half-assed job of attempting to do a movie on the cheap for him and so they put it through their Touchstone Pictures subsidiary instead of the Disney brand as an outcast film because it was expected to tank before it even got started.

Thankfully it landed in a place where people actually care about their work, not just their money, and Elton also supported it a lot, and it became a semi-huge success doubling or tripling the production costs though im not sure of exact numbers.

This of course flew right into the face of pixar as well as disney and you can find Elton's feelings on the whole thing here: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/elton-john-rips-disney-rant-162863

Onto the movie itself. Kids will like it more than adults. Its a lite romance with a few comedy bits and a few lessons learned along the way for the youngins. As an adult you will enjoy it, but realize it is a step down from stuff like wall-e and rattatouille (quadruple budget if not more) while being around 2 steps down from kung fu panda, how to train your dragon and the like (mostly due to the well known subject matter of course). Nevertheless, very far from being a bad movie.

Give it a chance and you will be pleasantly surprised.
