Don't you remember the lesbians in the original?
Juliet: Parting is such sweet sorrow.
Tromeo: Totally sucks.

William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet... in modern day New York. And, you know, with a little artistic license taken (it's a Troma movie, after all). Written by a young James Gunn.

This movie contains examples of:

  • Rasputinian Death: Cappy Capulet throughout the movie.
  • Refuge in Audacity: A staple of Troma films and this one definitely lives up to the refuge in aspect.
  • Stock Footage: In keeping with Troma's trend of Prop Recycling, the spectacular car flip caused by Tybalt's death appeared in other Troma movies as well.
  • Surprise Incest: Tromeo and Juliet end up being siblings.
  • Torture Porn: Not as bad partly due to its low budget but you can see it in the Gorn scenes throughout.
