Storyline

Capulet becomes Cappell, and Montague becomes Monroe in yet another modernized adaptation of Shakespeare's classic "Romeo & Juliet." This time, the adult family members are feuding by way of a mayoral election, while Ronnie & Julie are the ice-skating lovers (he in hockey, and she as a figure skater.)

AN INSULT FOR SHAKESPEAR
1 November 2001 | by (Ljubljana, Slovenija) – See all my reviews

A Drama? Hahahahahaha.

Recommendations? No. Or maybe some 12 year old kids will liked it. Some.

I can't remember a single thing, that i liked in this movie, even if it was made for TV. O.K. maybe hockey. But that won't stopped me to give this movie a shameful grade of
