When you just thought I ran out of stuff to say about Gnomeo and Juliet you were wrong!!
As I’m afraid that if I continue to talk about the movie I would give too many facts away, or too much of my impression (YES I LOVED THE MOVIE) away, I’ll just leave you with a few fun facts that made me go Oh yeah, I noticed that the second time I watched it but still didn’t get it until you put it right in front of my face like that.
Ok, sorry for the run on sentence…
Fun Gnomeo and Juliet Facts put together by our Friends at
Disney I mean Touchstone! The filmmakers offer a nod to Shakespeare in several ways: (my favorite is that Patrick Stewart is the voice of Shakespeare, I mean, how many times has the man played a part in theater over there in England, I wish I lived in London!)
· In a nod to “Hamlet,” Miss Montague’s mailbox is numbered 2B, while her rival neighbor Mr. Capulet’s mailbox is 2B with a red slash through it (“NOT to be”).
· “Macbeth” is referenced in a scene in which Juliet is threatened by a bulldog. She slams shut her garden gate and shouts “Out!”—followed quickly by the dog’s distant owner yelling “Damned Spot!”
· Featherstone’s shed interior features a ticket stub for “As You Like It.”
· The truck that rolls through and accidently drops a couple teapots (later mistaken by several gnomes as a broken comrade), is marked “Tempest Teapots.”
· When the Goons glue Juliet to her pedestal, the glue is labeled “The Taming of the Glue.”
Now you can watch Gnomeo And Juliet on February 11th and laugh as if you were a Shakespearean buff!
