Tromeo & Juliet


While this comedy about star-crossed idiots (Jane Jensen and Will Keenan) has all the kinky sex and ultraviolence expected of the Troma studio, which built its reputation on chimichangas like The Toxic Avenger, Shakespeare's dewy tragedy still glistens amid the deep-fried glop. Which is all the more incredible considering that Tromeo & Juliet changes the Bard's ending and throws out most of his words. Some stories just adapt more readily than others. B
