There was a British TV series a few years ago called "The Darling Buds
of May." It starred Catherine Zeta Jones who is obviously big news in
the States now. I think it was based on a book of the same name, but
clearly the title was originally lifted from a well-known sonnet, and
presumably a large proportion of its audience would have been aware of
the reference.

To Karen Pirnie:

Try the relatively new play (actually a collection of short pieces)
called "Love's Fire" --- playlets by some prominent contemporary
playwrights (Wendy Wasserstein, John Guare, etc.) based on selected
sonnets.  Most of the plays are unfunny and overwrought but the last
one, in which a self-conscious troupe of young actors discusses the
sonnets and the play they are rehearsing, is witty and fun.  "Love's
Fire" was recently published in paperback-you can get it through
Amazon.com.

I'm sure many people will mention this, but in the movie "Clueless" Cher
writes a love note using lines from "Shall I compare thee to a summer's
day?" She identifies it as "a famous quote" by "Cliffnotes."

A female teenage hip-hop duo from Denmark calling themselves S.O.A.P.
has just issued a US release containing among other things a song called
"Romeo and Juliet."

I've not (TRUST ME!) listened to the CD; it arrived with a box of
cassingles of their big Danish hit and a letter asking to have the HS
newspaper I advise do a review and distribute the cassingles.  I don't
think we'll bother....
