GIVEAWAY: Gnomeo & Juliet Blu-Ray/DVD Combo & Gnome Statue

There are movies your kid begs you to go see. Then there are the movies you drag the kid to. I’m not sure which category Gnomeo & Juliet falls into, to be honest.

Confession time. I’m a gnome-whore. The creepy little buggers crack me up. I blame Gilmore Girls, specifically the episode when “Pierpont,” the gnome in Babette’s (Sally Struthers) garden goes missing. When the kid came out of the womb with that pointy head that comes from an, ahem, natural birth, and they plunked a cute lil’ pink hat on her, she looked JUST like a gnome. Hubs named her Pierpont. Hey, it was all outta love!

Then there’s the other bit.
Love Elton John. LOVE Elton John. Call me a dork and a half, but the highlight of my summer is knowing the Rocket Man is coming to my backyard (ahem Internet-reading burglars, the sitter will be here with the kid and the dog is totes scary — pick another house . . . you’ll be safer).

So, you take gnomes. Add Elton John. And make a kids movie? I was sooooo there. And yeah, the hubs fell asleep, but the 5-year-old and I were in heaven.

The story’s pretty basic — boy meets girl. Boy loves girl. Boy and girl turn out to be mortal enemies. Think Shakespeare with a Disney ending. I hated the real play, but this one was not just kid-friendly but Elton John-freak friendly. And the Blu-Ray version (which yeah, they sent me for free, gotta put it out there . . . even though I paid for my tix in the theater) is full of all sorts of goodies that take a gnome-addict like me to the highest heights (wait, that’s from another Disney movie, isn’t it?).

Now for the good news. It’s a crazy cute flick. And you can have one too!! The folks at Touchstone have agreed to give TWO Inside Out readers their own Blu-Ray/DVD combo of Gnomeo & Juliet. But wait, there’s more! You get a totally adorbs Juliet gnome too . . . consider it my way of spreading the gnome army into gardens far, far away. Check this cutie out:

Squeeeeeee. So, oh yeah, entries. Cause I know the gnome love is out there (go on, admit it!!). Leave a comment with your favorite Elton John song (yeah, I’m going there . . . you have to pick just one!!).

Want extra entries? Of course you do. Soooo, you can:

1. Become a Facebook fan of Inside Out Motherhood, and leave a comment telling me (and drop by to leave me a comment on there too if you want — I’m a glutton for looooove). 
2. Follow me on Twitter @jeannesager and tweet this giveaway — you MUST have an actual link to the giveaway in the tweet, or it doesn’t count. Leave a link to your Tweet in the comments below.
3. Grab my purty new button (you’ll see it at left), post it on your blog, then leave me a link in comments so I can come visit you and say hi!

I think that’s it. Oh yeah — make sure I have some way to contact you if you’re the winner. If you’re a blogger and have a contact on your blog, that’ll do so you don’t have to put your email out there for the world to see. But if not, how about a Twitter handle, something, so I can reach out. Or you can check back. The contest will end June 3.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie to facilitate my review of its content. I wasn’t otherwise paid for this review, and all opinions expressed are my own.
