I went in expecting unmitigated disaster, but found a steady mixture of striking visuals, charming voice performances, and clever visual cues. Still, the obvious and pandering irony runs way too deep with Gnomeo and Juliet, and this trend ends up draining the film of its redeeming qualities. You can find my mixed review at Slant.
