Oh Romeo..Eew Romeo? Oh yea, Romeo!
12 September 2008 | by rwashington6121See all my reviews

I didn't know what hit me! Recently caught this on IFC and loved it. I was immediately drawn into this funny, quirky, juicy musical. Great writing, lyrics, characters, choreography and pace. Where is this filmmaker? Instantly cared about the characters and enjoyed the surprises. Wonderful spoof on med shows and masterfully presented in a cheeky, short narco-musical. Raw and sexy dance montage, terrific acting and loads of well timed moments. Impeccable overall quality. Would love to see this developed for Broadway. The musical numbers are hits and the subject matter deliciously delivers taboo, fantasy and romance. Palpitating for MORE baby!
