Tromeo & Juliet ★★ 1995 (R)

There've been many versions of Shakespeare, but the Bard may never recover from being “Tromatized.” On the outskirts of New York City, teenaged Tromeo Que (Keenan) falls in lust with babe Juliet Capulet (Jensen), but the family feud is still around to cause major disharmony. There's lots of profanity, perversity, and gore to keep your interest. As the movie's tagline says, “Body Piercing. Kinky Sex. Dismemberment. The things that made Shakespeare great.” The unrated version is 105 minutes. 95m/C VHS, DVD . Will Keenan, Jane Jensen, Debbie Rochon, Lemmy, Valentine Miele, Sean Gunn; D: Lloyd Kaufman; W: James Gunn; C: Brendan Flynt; M: Willie Wisely.
