A modern, punk adaptation of Shakespeare's classic. Told irreverently, this film attempts to impact the viewer in the same way theatre-goers were affected in Shakespeare's time. Bawdy, Violent, Humorous, and Romantic. Written by
The scene where London Arbuckle dives through the window caused a stuntman to nearly die. When he first jumped through the window, the sugar glass was too thick to break. When they took the glass out, he forgot there wasn't any and dove full force. See more »
It is pointed out toward the end that Tromeo is obviously not Monty's son because Monty is black, but it is never explained as to how Benny is related to Monty, as he is white. See more »
[Tyrone wants a word with Murray]
A word with me? How about a word for me? Or better yet, how about a word for you? Let's see, a word for Tyrone Capulet. Boofball. Dickbag. Peon. Freak. Cocksucker. Shithead, ratcatcher, geek. Loser, anus, fruitcake, lunk, fiddlefucker, dweeb, feeb. Cunt. Assfuck; ah, that one's close to the mark. How 'bout guinea, schmuck, or pussyfart?

Hi! I'm the CREDIT GUY - You know, the sensitive guy who makes up the end credits on all these films. It gets pretty lonely around here, you know, dedicating my spirit to a vastly under-appreciated art form - so I thought I'd slip in a little personal ad. I'm sure the producers won't mind. If any women are interested in water sports please call me at 1-800-838-7662! Run out into the lobby and make the call now. Oh, yeah - and I love big hooters! See more »
But soft, what light through yonder movie screen breaks???
Troma. A production company name that is well-suited to the phrase "if you have to ask then you really don't wanna know". They make low-budget, highly entertaining schlock for fans of . . . . . . well, low-budget, highly entertaining schlock.
And here they gives us their interpretation of, arguably, William Shakespeare's most famous work. A young couple from two rival families fall in love and complications and tragedy ensue.
However, this being Troma, things are helped along with copious amounts of gratuitous nudity and violence, godawful acting and this time around we also get the occasional snippet of actual Shakespearean material, although not that much.
Juliet kept nekkid in a large, perspex cube, Lemmy playing the narrator, strangely outdated punk styles that are almost so out of style they're acceptable again - it's all here. If you like Troma movies then you'll already know that you'll glean some fun from this but I must say that it's simply not as entertaining as some of their other output although it does have it's obvious novelty value and the good sense to put attractive youngsters in most of the main roles. I am also shallow enough to admit that it gains points from me simply for having the lush Debbie Rochon involved. With her AND Tiffany Shepis in this movie, it's a treat for fans of the Scream Queens.
