William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet | 1996 | PG-13 | - 3.6.1

A modern retelling of the classic tale.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Sexual innuendo, passionate kissing. Romeo and Juliet kiss bare chested and are lying naked in bed (only his bare chest and her bare shoulders are seen. They have supposedly had sex the night before).

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Fireballs, gang shoot-outs. A man is shot and falls, and there is some blood on his torso and face. A woman shoots herself and there is some splattered blood on her face. A man drinks poison and dies convulsing and a man has his abdomen sliced with a piece of glass -- some blood. A car crash with two people getting hurt and blood on the asphalt. Threatening with guns, vicious beating with punches and kicks. For an extended scene a few people are quite bloody (face, torso, clothing). Guns are held to peoples heads a few times.

LANGUAGE 1 - A couple of anatomical references.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
