Product Description

Body Piercing. Kinky Sex. Dismemberment. The Things That Made Shakespeare Great!

See Shakespeare the way he was meant to be seen: the Troma way! Directed by Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger) and written by James Gunn (Dawn of the Dead), Tromeo & Juliet moves the classic tale of star-crossed lovers from 16th century Verona to a crumbling pre-Giuliani New York, where young Tromeo (Will Keenan) and Juliet (Jane Jensen) must defy their families' endless feud in order to be together for eternity. Set to a kick-ass soundtrack featuring Motorhead, Sublime, and the Wesley Willis Fiasco, Tromeo & Juliet is the most over-the-top erotic-action-comedy since Romeo & Juliet debuted on the stage in 1596!

SPECIAL FEATURES
- Four audio commentaries with cast and crew including writer James Gunn, director Lloyd Kaufman, Oscar-nominee Frank Reynolds and co-star Sean Gunn
- Deleted scenes (including the long-lost Ron Jeremy scene)
- Fan reenactments of classic scenes
- Interviews with cast and crew including stars Debbie Rochon, Tiffany Shepis, Sean Gunn and Lemmy
- Slithering Through Hollywood: Lloyd Kaufman s video diary of the James Gunn film Slither
- Getting Hostel with Hollywood: James Gunn and Lloyd Kaufman visit Eli Roth s birthday party

5.0 out of 5 stars I was very surprised by this film...it's a winner January 1, 2002
Format:DVD
First thing you need to do before you read the rest of this review is read the title of the movie again...TROMEO and Juliet...it is a Troma film. Ok...now that we have that out of the way we can move on with the review.
This film is no Gone With the Wind, but then I say to you that Gone With the Wind is no Tromeo and Juliet either. Troma is not defined by your typical Hollywood rules where movies are concerned. Troma sits off in the dark corner of the big room where all the class clowns hang out and are just in their own world. Tromeo and Juliet does what Troma does best and does it better than ever before. I never really believed that I would enjoy something more than the Toxic Avenger coming out of Tromaville. This movie quickly took over the position as my favorite Troma film. The characters are over the top and fun. The script is funny and Tromeo's black fartin' dad is hilarious. A great cast of characters with an intelligent(as in Troma intelligent) script.
I personally thought the cook for the Capulets was far more sexy than Juliet, but what do I know. I will say one thing about some of the off color content...be warned if you are easily offended. There is plenty by which to be offended in this film. For instance, a freakshow who desires his sister in every way, a father who is freakishly attracted to his daughter, as well as plenty of other off color scenes. Did you expect anything less from Troma though.
Watch for the tons and tons of memorabilia from the other Troma films throughout this film as well as the party where you see a cast of characters from the other films to include Toxie himself.
I have to say that when the characters break into their "Shakespearean" dialog, it just makes me giggle. Very funny if you ask me.
Overall this is a pretty solid Troma film with a nice story done in vintage Troma style.

5.0 out of 5 stars They found a peanut, all right...a peanut of DEATH! March 29, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always had this fantasy that some thoroughly disreputable quick-buck movie would end up being brilliant. Like, what if some soft-core "Erotic Thriller" ended up having gutsy, breakthrough performances and a riveting plot? What if "Police Academy 12" was Oscar-worthy?
My fantasies came through with "Tromeo & Juliet." The very concept of a punk "Romeo" is brilliant - they conceived this before Baz Luhrmann's movie - but seeing as how this is Troma we're talking about, Lloyd Kaufman could have steered this in a very wrong (read: conventional) direction. Fortunately, they managed to find a young mad genius named James Gunn to write the script, and they found some hungry young acting talent who threw themselves into the project. And Kaufman, perhaps inspired by all this, finally directed like a man more concerned with making a good movie than cashing in on the quick-buck exploitation trends that nearly ruined "Troma's War" and "Sgt. Kabukiman."
Not that "Tromeo & Juliet" isn't a quick-buck exploitation movie. It is. It's also a hilarious and inventive comedy, an art film, a soft-core porno, a gross-out gore flick, a surprisingly moving love story, and - best of all - one of the most oddly faithful Shakespeare adaptations I've ever seen. Amazingly, it's all these things all at the same time, sometimes even in the same scene (check out Murray Que's final scene, in the tattoo parlor). "Tromeo" captures the spirit, the wordplay, and the abandon that so many staid Shakespeare movies completely miss. And it's one of the most energetic and creative movies you're likely to see.
I could gush on and on about "Tromeo," for it is my favorite movie. Now that James Gunn is a big-time - although still delightfully weird - Hollywood writer, I wouldn't be surprised to see a surge in "Tromeo" sales.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate dvd release of ANY film September 12, 2006
By Ton
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
William Shakespeare's play Romeo & Juliet has been interpreted hundreds of times on stage and in films. Sometimes literally following the original text (which is, at times, vague in stage directions), sometimes in new interpretations where directors chose to show their own view on the piece. Some are good, many are mediocre. Lloyd Kaufman's film certainly stands out as one of the most original, modern versions of the bard's creation, It may be placed in a modern-day decaying New York and full of the modern-day anti-social behavior, body piercing, dismemberment and kinky sex (which, for the more than casual reader, Shakespeare himself wasn't shying away from), but at the same time it stays incredibly close to the overall feel and point of what the play is all about, which is quite an effort. Kaufman wrote the script with his co-director on the film James Gunn, who is now famous for writing two successful Scooby Doo movies, doing the impossible by making a perfect remake of an already perfect film with his script for Dawn of the Dead and directing one of the best horror-films of the year: Slither. Lloyd Kaufmans innovative directorial view alongside with James Gunns original and unrestricted writing make for an interpretation of Shakespeare's play that maybe not everyone will "get" immediately, but will certainly be recognized by a truly unique and highly important view on a classic play. With a script that is written entirely in iambic meter, appearances of Motorhead's Lemmy and an outrageous forceful soundtrack watching Tromeo & Juliet is something no one will ever forget. Apart from it's historical significance, Tromeo &

Juliet is a treasure for film-lovers of all kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have!
Anyone who can truly appreciate a film for its entertaining value and not be sensitive about it should have seen this movie at least a dozen times.

3.0 out of 5 stars B- movie
If you are looking for a bad Shakespeare knock off in a B movie form. This would do the trick. If it wasn't for some adult content I would say light it on fife and walk away.

3.0 out of 5 stars A novelty, nothing more
A return to Tromaville like with the movie the Toxic Avenger. This movie is okay but nothing to write home about. Quirky in its style, story, and sense of humor. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Includes full head crushing scene!
This is my favorite shakespeare adaptation by far, but don't watch it with the kids or grandma. And the bonus bonus features are a nice bonus.
