What’s Gnomeo & Juliet about? Here’s a synopsis from Touchstone Pictures:
Perhaps the above clip and description provide you with enough information but I’m look forward to reading the review of Gnomeo & Juliet on Common Sense Media when it comes out tomorrow. This morning I clicked over to the site and saw that my friend Sandie, a professional movie reviewer, fellow blogger, and mom, is writing the review. I know I can always count on her reviews to help me figure out what movies are best for our family but trust the other Common Sense reviewers too.
Movies are color coded with stop light colors and rated either on, iffy, or off. If a movie is rated on, Common Sense will feature a green button that is prominently labeled with an age that the movie is best for. This rating will come up in search of the site so you can see at-a-glance if a title is good for your kids.
Dive into the full review to read a detailed paragraph about the movie and see suggested discussion topics from the movie’s themes. Each movie also features a rating system that includes the good stuff like educational value, messages, role models. Ratings under the “what to watch out for” are also helpful since they include categories for violence & scariness, sexy stuff, language, consumerism, and drinking, drugs & smoking. appreciate the star rating that provides a helpful overview of films at a glance.
