As the box states, "Body-piercing, kinky sex, dismemberment.  The things
that made Shakespeare great."  More like Ed Wood on crack, Shakespeare a
la Chainsaw massacre.  I highly recommend it, too.  Rent it today...but
don't watch it right after dinner.

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0777  *Tromeo & Juliet*

As a teacher of Shakespeare who constantly encourages her students to
watch everything possible by him. I was appalled not only at the
atrocious film but of its explicitness and its availability.  When I
suggested to our local Blockbusters that this could be a problem they
couldn't believe it had got through with an R rating...believe me I'm
not a prude...but didn't you think this was a disgusting film?  The
nurse sleeping with Juliet?
