Shakespeare at his best!!!!
5 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is an extremely under-rated masterpiece. It is because of this movie I wanted to learn more about Shakespeare and Romeo & Juliet. It's funny and incredibly romantic.Romeo (Josh Jackson) instead of being sad, dark, and frankly depressing; he is a witty, sweet, HOT, hokey player. Also Juliet (Margo Finley)is a cute also sweet figure skater.I completely fell in love with this movie ever since I first saw it. And girls who have even only heard of Josh Jackson, this movie will make you want to marry him and have 1000 of his babys.I pray that this comes on again so those who have not had the honor of seeing this classic will and love it to no end. Yes, this is definatly Shakespeare at his best.
