YMMV / Romeo And Julieta

Go To

  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • The humans. Obliviously Evil and with no idea of what the've done, or complete bastards who either knew and didn't care or sadistically reveled in the killing?
    • Tikidude: Were Roméo and Julieta grabbed too fast for him to help, or were there other possible reasons he did nothing?
  • Awesome Music: The second film features two epic tracks from Steve Jablonsky's various Transformers scores; specifically "No Prisoners, Only Trophies" and the first half of "Matrix of Leadership".
  • Advertisement:
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Protagonists needlessly and cruelly killed off? Not funny. An upbeat credits gag immediately after the fact? Hilarious.
  • Fridge Horror: A world where disposable products are completely sentient lends itself quite nicely to this.
  • Fridge Logic: Surely the humans must have noticed something was up the piñatas started randomly appearing in different locations around the house? Or somehow gained wedding attire with no obvious explanation? Or when they called out for each other while being carried off?
  • Genius Bonus: The second film doesn't escape a narration credit despite being entirely wordless. The narrator is credited as… Calvin Coolidge, aka "Silent Cal".
  • Ham and Cheese: It's pretty obvious the actors had fun with their roles...
  • Idiot Plot: The films are completely dependent on the humans not noticing (or caring enough) about all the strangeness surrounding the titular pair. See Fridge Logic for details.
  • Narm: The noises Romeo makes when he dies.
    • Roméo and Julieta's voices in general, though this was intentional.
    • Narm Charm: The first film practically runs on this.
  • So Bad, It's Good
  • What Could Have Been: Patrick Arikaki was originally going to have a more expanded role, but he was busy during a large chunk of production (and holding the camera for most of the rest).

How well does it match the trope?
