6. Gnomeo & Juliet

Release Date: Feb. 11, 2011

Earnings: $25,356,909 (opening weekend), $193,967,670 (worldwide)

Critical Acclaims: In total, the animated movie walked away with one win and 11 nominations over the awards season. The win was the ASCAP Film and Television Awards for Top Box Office Films. It did receive a nomination for Best Original Song.

About the role: Gnomeo & Juliet is the adorable family-friendly version of William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. This time it’s a set of gnomes in two warring houses. Emily Blunt takes on the role of Juliet, the heir to the Red House. When she goes on an adventure, she meets Gnomeo, heir to the Blue House, and they start to find love.

Of course, it’s a tale of love and loss. Can the two change the story and give Romeo and Juliet the happy ending they deserve? It’s a kid’s movie. What do you think?

Simply the best: If there’s one thing Emily Blunt can do, it’s voice work. She gets an amazing amount of emotion through voice work, which is essential to make an animated movie a success. That’s the case with Gnomeo & Juliet.

The movie is perfect for fans of animated dramedies and Elton John songs. There are plenty adapted for the movie, with “Hello, Hello” as the original song created for the film. This is one of those movies the whole family will adore over and over again.

This is Toy Story but with gnomes and a love story as old as time.
