* ColorblindCasting: It almost looks like the movie is doing this by having a black man play the white Tromeo's father. [[spoiler:This is actually a plot point.]]



* {{Foreshadowing}}: "And then you put a little incest into the mix..." from Martini towards Georgie at the start of the film.

"And then you put a little incest into the mix..." from Martini towards Georgie at the start of the film.


* AdaptationalAlternateEnding: PlayedForLaughs at the end. [[spoiler:Rather than committing suicide together because of a misunderstanding like in the play, Tromeo and Juliet [[ShockingSwerve suddenly find out they're actually siblings]] and drive off into the sunset to [[CrossesTheLineTwice raise their mutant children]].]]

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* BiTheWay: Juliet loves Tromeo but also loves having sex with her cook, Ness.


* BiTheWay: Juliet considering her relationships with Ness and then Tromeo.


* CargoEnvy: A famous example from the source material is parodied: In the original play, Romeo sees Juliet in the window with her hands on her cheek and wishes he could be her glove; Here, Tromeo has the exact same lines in the same situation, but Juliet is touching her butt instead of her face, so he's talking about a different sort of cheek. (Shakespeare would doubtless approve of this joke.)

Added DiffLines:

* TrueLoveIsAKink: Tromeo Que has a brief scene where he masturbates furiously to a pornographic interactive computer game with a list of fetishes to pleasure himself to. Which does he choose?

Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfHam: Troma and Shakespeare are already exaggerated enough, so imagine them together! Just the fact the narrator is "Lemmy, House of Music/{{Motorhead}}" shows this is a movie not holding back.


* NameAndName: An homage to the parent company, Troma, with the phrase Tromeo replacing Romeo in the film title. Could also extend to Ques and Capulets.

Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''... [[InSpace in modern day New York]]. And, you know, with a little artistic license taken (it's a Creator/{{Troma}} movie, after all). Written by a young [[Film/{{Slither}} James]] [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Gunn]].
