Editorial Reviews

Bruno Barreto gives Shakespeare's classic love story a raucously fresh retelling by setting it in the crazed world of passionate soccer fans. Ophthalmologist Romeo, his 21-year-old son and feisty grandmother are obsessed with Corinthians football team. When Romeo falls for Juliet the lovely daughter of the arch rival Parmeiras fan club president, he fakes a love for the Palmeiras to impress his future father-in-law. The ruse comes to a head when Romeo's true loyalties are revealed, triggering a series of frantic and hilarious twists that threaten the best laid wedding plans of the star crossed lovers.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I really enjoyed this film. It is directed by the renowned filmmaker, Bruno Barreto, who is best known for his classic "Dona Flor And Her Two Husbands," as well as "Four Days In September." R&J is much closer to the farcical tone of Dona Flor. Using crazed sports loyalties as the source of conflict between the two rival families is a brilliant touch. Doing so keeps things light and fast paced with many laugh out loud moments. The acting is incredible, with Luana Piovani, as Juliet, the real knock out. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to laugh at the foibles of love and the absurdity of sports obsessions.

I think Gary Dretzka of Movie City News (moviecitynews.com) said it best. "Studio types rarely seek my opinions on anything, unless it involves finding the men's room after a screening. Having just finished watched this thoroughly charming Brazilian import, however, I know one thing for certain: someone who makes a lot of money, somewhere, blew it. With a bit of help from the marketing gods, Bruno Barreto's charming adaptation of the Bard's most accessible tragedy might have captured a healthy slice of the same audiences that embraced Bend It Like Beckham, Shakespeare in Love and My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Romeo and Juliet Get Married is just that irresistible. Here, the feuding families are rabid fans of rival teams in Brazil's club-soccer league. Juliet's father is a lawyer and chairman of Sao Paolo's real-life Palmeiras, and he named his daughter after two of the team's legendary players. A fine player, herself, the lanky brunette falls for the chief cheerleader of Palmeiras' arch-rivals, Corinthians. Despite not being able to maintain an erection in the vicinity of the Palmeiras banner in Juliet's bedroom, Romeo's infatuation demands that he convince her father he is a diehard fan. In his stubborn chauvinism and loud devotion to his team, Romeo's future father-in-law recalls restaurateur Gus Portokalos in Nia Vardalos' sleeper hit, My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Anyone who's read the Shakespeare tragedy even once could guess what happens next, minus the swordplay and vials of poison. (Juliet's dad and Romeo's grandmother do shed some tears, however.) Like so many other Brazilian comedies - Barreto also gave us Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands - Romeo and Juliet Get Married is sly, sexy and broad enough to appeal to those with only a passing interest in soccer. There's commentary, brief interviews, a music video and a making-of featurette."

This movie is awesome! If you have a fan in your life, that sometimes takes their love a little far, you will laugh and cry through some of the parts, it is out of control. The actors and actresses do a fantastic job convincing you, that they're really as passionate as they appear, and yet you may not see the end coming by a long shot.

A romantic comedy from Brazil that is about a man who has to pretend he is a fan of his rival soccer team to win over a woman's family. Great movie with some hilarious parts. Even if you don't understand Portuguese, sometimes you forget you're reading subtitles. It's that good. I wish there were more Brazilian/Portuguese movies like this available in the US.

This romantic comedy was a very surprising and pleasing find. The plot, as you can imagine, won't "surprise" you much, but the characters are well developed, acting is more than adequate and the story line is... almost credible! Romeo and Julieta (played by the stunningly beautiful Luana Piovani) are particularly well done and you will likely care a lot for them and root for a happy ending of their love story. If you don't like soccer you will likely find that there is a bit too much screen time devoted to games and team cheering, but no big deal. If you think soccer is THE most important thing in the world (as many characters in this movie seem to do) you will likely enjoy this movie immensely. As "sports romantic comedies" go I liked "Wimbledon" better, but this was a close contender. Recommended!

I'm not a fan of all comedies, but this is one of the best I've seen. A very clever and liberal take on the almost always repetitive theme of Romeo and Juliet. It has laughs, drama and intelligence. Plus, great characters. If you learn a little about Brazilian football fever and passion, you'll understand it and be pleased even more.

This is a great movie to show after reading Romeo and Juliet. It looks at the story in a modern setting -- Brazil & soccer. Unfortunately it has not been dubbed into English.
