* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: What happened to Paris? In the original story he [[spoiler: was killed by Romeo]], but in this version, he [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome disappears without explanation]]. The Prince's line about "losing a brace of kinsmen" is a reference to Paris's death - but it could be reinterpreted to mean [[spoiler: Mercutio.]]

** Captain Prince and his kinsman Mercutio are black in this, but oddly Paris (who in the play is related to the Prince and Mercutio) is Anglo. This explains why the family relationship between Paris and Prince is not mentioned - but that leaves hanging a line mentioned where Prince explains that he lost family as well - that line was referring to Paris.

* MindScrew: Romeo takes drugs before the party and sees Tybalt kissing his own aunt, Mercutio singing in drag and the room spinning. Considering [[Creator/BazLuhrmann who directs the film]], it should be expected.

* SunshineNoir: There's a good amount of influence from ''{{Scarface}}'' and ''MiamiVice'' on the film's aesthetic, in addition to dovetailing with the similar aesthetic of pop stars such as Ricky Martin who were popular when the movie came out.

* FamousLastWords: Averted. Juliet's "O happy dagger! This is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die" is never spoken.

* AlmostKiss: The second time Romeo and Juliet try to kiss, they are interrupted by the ding of a bell. Quickly subverted seconds later as the two enter an elevator and kiss in there.



* AmbiguouslyGay: Mercutio. He plays a drag queen to boot. Tybalt manages to provoke Mercutio into hostilities with a homophobic taunt of "Mercutio! [[HoYay Thou consortest with Romeo!]]", removing a considerable amount of ambiguity to many viewers.
