* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler:It's medieval times and he's a poor playwright and she a noble, he's already married and she's betrothed and bound for America etc.]] Plus, it involves the very play that immortalized this trope of course.

* DidNotGetTheGirl: History - and the film itself - tells us that Shakespeare married a woman named Anne Hathaway ([[Creator/AnneHathaway not that one]],[[note]]Though that's who she's named after[[/note]]) so viewers [[DoomedByCanon shouldn't get their hopes up]].

* GoodAdulteryBadAdultery: Shakespeare is married and Viola is engaged to Lord Wessex, but Lord Wessex is only marrying her for her money and Anne Hathaway is in Stratford-upon-Avon, and not particularly well inclined towards Will at present.

** Before the play opens at The Curtain there's a Puritan protesting the performance.
* TheMuse: Almost the entire point of the movie. Will at first thinks Rosaline will be his muse but when he catches her in bed with Burbage, he turns her into the RomanticFalseLead in the play. Viola then becomes his muse properly.

--> '''Henslowe:''' Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.

* TakeThat: Fennyman proposes to Henslowe that the actors get paid for the play from the nonexistent profits the company will receive, a swipe at Hollywood's rather [[HollywoodAccounting loose accounting procedures]].

** The real Shakespeare definitely didn't make the plot of ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' up as he went along since - as is the case with pretty much ''all'' of his work - he was adapting preexisting poems, stories or historical records for the stage; in this case he used ''The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet.''
