* StrangledByTheRedString: Invoked because of the original work, but the settings can greatly interfere with the perception of this seriously because of the lack of a classical or atmosphere. As a result, in the film, Juliet reads the words about "love that replaced hatred for the worst enemy" after their almost ten-minute meeting and one ardent kiss.

* EvilIsCool: [[Creator/JohnLeguizamo John Leguizamo's]] is probably the most BadAss version of Tybalt that will ever be put to celluloid.

** John Leguizamo's odd lisping delivery, especially if you start thinking of [[WesternAnimation/IceAge Sid the Sloth]].

** Hammy as it was, Harold Perrineau's portrayal of Mercutio is often considered to be one of the best parts of the film and is often cited as one that's truest to the character overall.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The concept. It's either creative and unique or nonsensical and annoying.

** At the beginning of the dance, Romeo sees how Tybalt kissed mother of Juliet, his aunt. In the future, this has no consequences for the plot or the characters themselves, comforting us only by the fact that he is her cousin not on the part of the mother ...

** The whole concept of MTV-ing Shakespeare in general. While some find that updating story makes it catchy, stylish and gives it a kind of youth charm, others believe that the combination of Shakespeare with modern settings gives us an incredible WorldOfHam with a bunch of incredibly pretentious characters.

* DawsonCasting: Leonardo [=DiCaprio=] was 21 when he filmed this. Claire Danes {{avert|ed}}s this, actually being 16 when it was filmed. Assuming Romeo's friends are supposed to be of similar ages to one another, keep in mind that Harold Perrineau (Mercutio) was 33.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Criminal authorities and young bandits, who speak like educated aristocrats of the Elizabethan era? Intentional combination of pretentiousness and eccentricity in the style of MTV 90's? Well, not everyone liked this, yes.



* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The whole Mercutio dance number. Granted, Romeo was high at that point, but it really comes out of nowhere.

* HoYay: The film is simply saturated with this because of the large number of young and attractive half-dressed guys who constantly seem too close to each other. And in addition to everything, it seems that Mercutio in this film is canonically in love with Romeo ...

** Tybalt turning his [[CoolGuns 'Sword']] into a SniperPistol and blowing up the whole gas station. It's no less awesome and intense, but it's still bizarre.
