TROMEO AND JULIET (1996) ** ½

This bad taste updating of the Shakespeare classic (obviously inspired by Baz Luhrman’s modernized version) is typical of most 90’s Troma movies. There’s plenty of blood, guts and tits, but it’s also uneven as hell and features everything (body piercing, incest, penis monsters, women giving birth to popcorn, etc.) but the kitchen sink. The leads (Will Keenan and Jane Jensen) are pretty forgettable, but Debbie Rochon is amazing as Juliet’s pierced lesbian maid. Any movie in which Lemmy is the narrator can’t be all that bad. Screenwriter James Gunn later went on to direct Slither. Best line: “Parting is such sweet sorrow.” “Yeah it totally sucks.”
