When you heard that the sequel to Gnomeo and Juliet was Sherlock Gnomes and that it would still be the original cast of characters, you probably had the same thought I did. Is there going to be any Shakespeare in this?
The short answer is, “Yes, actually.” But it’s in a way that most people will find funny, and Shakespeare geeks will groan and eye roll at.
Gnomeo has gone missing. Dr. Watson has gone looking for him. “Gnomeo! Gnomeo!” he cries. “Oh, don’t make me say it.” Heavy sigh. “Wherefore art thou Gnomeo?”
It’s at this point that my entire table (we have a local movie theatre where you sit at a table and have dinner) turns to look at my reaction. I throw my hands up in the air, roll my eyes and say, “Well, at least now I can justify getting a blog post out of it.”
