There is a quotation from Othello ("the ocular proof") in the
controversial film Barbershop.

There are extensive quotations in Lilian's Story, based on a novel of
the same name.  Not a bad film, though the ending is signaled so heavily
and early that it has little dramatic value.

There are also a number of quotations in My Giant.  Pretty bad film,
with Billy Crystal (yuck), but worth viewing for the Shakespeare.

An episode (np. 3138) of Hey Arnold entitled "School Play" is based on a
Romeo and Juliet production.  Helga plays Juliet.

In case I didn't mention this before, there is a mention of Romeo and
Juliet and one of Shakespeare in Satyajit Ray's Charaluta, the Lonely
Wife.

Subject:        R and J and Bloody Sunday

From the Elvis Mitchel 10/02/02 NY Times review of the film Bloody
Sunday:

Mr. Greengrass's instincts led him to stage "Sunday" as a polemical
version of "Romeo and Juliet," with the underlying politics occupying
the foreground. Gerry Donaghy (Declan Duddy), a teenager who hangs with
a tough crowd and has been arrested for rioting previously, is in a
romance with a Protestant girl, underscoring his homage to Shakespeare.

Subject:        Degrassi and Romeo and Juliet

In the second episode ("The Mating Game"), Ashley and Jimmy's
eight-month anniversary is coming up -- and so is the question of
whether or not to have sex.

Paige is playing Juliet opposite Jimmy's English-class Romeo and she's
planting doubts in Ashley's mind.

If Ashley doesn't "put out" soon, will Jimmy move on?
