It's possibly not the most promising idea – turning a corpse-strewn Shakespearean tragedy into a cartoon about two gnomes from adjacent back gardens who fall in love – but Gnomeo and Juliet turns out to be a lively, sweet, reasonably clever bit of sub-Pixar fun.

James McAvoy and Emily Blunt provide the voices of the terracotta teens; Elton John, who's one of the producers, slaps his songs all over the soundtrack.
