The Best Animated Movie for Families + Win $10,000 from Redbox

To celebrate summer fun, Redbox is asking moms, “What’s the best animated movie that both kids and parents can enjoy?” Plus, they are rewarding 2 lucky people with a chance to win $10,000 as part of the Redbox Summer of Fun & Games Sweepstakes. One of my favourite animated films is actually one that just came out this year- Gnomeo & Juliet. It’s loosely based on Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, but with a twist that is both hilarious and highly entertaining. It’s a Disney movie so it’s G rated for the kids to enjoy and follow along. It’s also has some references to the original Romeo & Juliet play so for adults who have read it, they can laugh at the way they did a play on words with many of the famous quotes. My favourite scene was the gnomes lawnmower races! Both sides wanted to have the biggest fastest lawnmower to beat the other team. The gnomes were trying to get their neighbor owner to order the “Terrafirminator” online and she was just about to click purchase, but then changed her mind and purchased this teeny tiny “Kitten Mower”. Meow. We all howled with laughter at that particular scene. I think it was the best one of the whole film. Plus if you are an Elton John fan, you will enjoy all his songs which make up the soundtrack for this movie. I am so I was tapping my foot and humming along throughout. This movie is a must-see for the whole family!
