Nudity

I;m not really a big fan of Shakespeare, so I can't say much here, but parents: do be warned that at one point, Romeo and Juliet sleep together; the act itself is not shown but we do see them the morning after. Juliet (whos actor was 16 at the time) has her breasts out in the open, and there's a clear shot of Romeo's butt.

A superb movie for anyone who is mature

This movie is a beautiful period piece. And truly spreads awareness of the impact of a child’s life if there families are fighting. One thing I have to point out and. The reason I made it 15+ is the nudity. At one point Romeo and Juliet are shown doing the deed under the covers, nothing to outrageous is shown, until Juliet wakes up and her breast are clearly shown, you can also see Romeo’s butt. I would also prefer you watch the 1968 version as opposed to the 2013 version. Though the 2013 version is more kid friendly, it is not at all accurate to Shakespeare masterpiece. 5 stars.

Great movie, one of the best in my opinion. My teacher showed my class this a couple of years back and most of the class loved it for the plot and the other for other reasons.

Great movie.

I think it is a great adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. The movie used a lot of original quotes and didn't have a lot of language changes from Shakespeare's time which could be difficult to understand. There is a little nudity on the girl's chest and the back of a naked boy, and they were sleeping together. But overall, it is good for tweens.

Classic, must watch at some point!

!!!SPOILERS!!! Great movie with a few suggestive scenes: at one time you can see two men fighting and beating each other. Later on, Juliet fakes her death, and then Romeo commits suicide by poison. There is also a nipple shown for a quick second, but no sex. I believe those are the only suggestive scenes. Great for mature tweens and up!

Good, even if I can't understand half of what they're saying.

There's some kissing romance, but that should be expected of a love story. Reviewed by Cool Kidz. P.S My name's Julieta.

i just wish they wouldn't have shown us this in class, did become a bit awkward at times, the Leonardo DiCaprio one was better in my opinion..

Great film adaptation is true to the original piece.

This film is a good one. It's true to the original written piece. It's worth your time if you like Romeo and Juliet. But for that matter, it's not for young kids. The opening scene is a street brawl between the two families: Montague and Capulet. This involves punches, swords, and even thrown vegetables as weapons. There is some bloodshed, but it is implied that the wounded lived. The second death was an accident (or at least that's how it was played out to be). Tybalt and Mecrutio fight, much like in the book, except it seems more like they're just messing around rather than trying to kill each other. Romeo tries to stop them from fighting but that causes Tybalt to stab Mecrutio by accident. He dies from it. Romeo goes after Tybalt and kills him for revenge. Juliet's father smacks her when she refuses to marry Paris. Then, of course, (SPOILER) Romeo and Juliet kill themselves. Paris does not die, neither does Romeo's mother. (SPOILER OVER) There is some racy stuff in the film. Romeo and Juliet have sex (not shown, but they are seen in bed together naked) Romeo's bare back and buttocks are visible and Juliet's breasts are visible for about a nano second. The Nurse cracks a racy joke. All the men wear tight spandex. Juliet is seen in her nightgown, some minor cleavage visible. Romeo and Juliet kiss. A lot. Heavy flirting. Some may find these scenes uneasy to watch since Juliet is 13 and Romeo is about 16. But then again this was normal for the time period. This is a good adaptation. Recommended to those who like the written piece.
