Moviefone Mama Says: Who doesn't love a good Shakespeare adaptation ... even if the characters are garden gnomes and the ending is much more of a "happily ever after" than the Bard ever intended? This highly original production features some of Britain's best and brightest actors (and, OK, Jason Statham, but he plays the brutish Tybalt), as well as a hilarious cameo by Shakespeare himself (in the form of a statue). This is a great introduction to Shakespeare for the little ones, and it's especially perfect for parents who like Elton John -- because not only is he the producer, but his music is also the foundation of the score/soundtrack. So, if you like your tragedies on the lighter side and happen to enjoy the legendary pop songs of Sir Elton, this is a fun pick for the entire family.
