Romeo & Juliet

  • What do you mean, can I swim?

The distributors are re-releasing this film to capitalise on two things - the popularity of Leonardo, and hordes of teenage schoolgirls on holiday.

This is a reworking of Shakespeare's tragic love story, brought up to date for the nineties. While the dialogue is still firmly stuck in the 16th century, everything else is as modern - and violent and sexy - as the twentieth century can produce.

Reviews have been mixed, but that never stopped a teenybopper before...

Santelle Garces: Excellent!!!!!!! One of the best movies I've ever seen!

Megan Kleyn: Great movie!!!! But not for purists!!! Very stylish and Leo is definitely worth a perv, granted when they spurge on in Shakesperean it's a bit blah but the setting helps you to understand what's potting, guys can perv at Clare Danes, not something to take your 8 yr old bro to.

Anthony Pepe: Nothing it sucked.

Caroline Smit: It was an insult to Shakespeare.
