Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): When on the beach preparing for a duel, Abra ejects all the bullets from Tybalt's magazine except one. Romeo uses that same gun, in a new location, to kill Tybalt, shooting him 6-7 times. However, Tybalt carries two guns. The one Romeo uses is the second gun, which at this point was not unloaded.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Juliet's hand and gun after she shoots herself.
  • All the guns in the film are named after types of swords. The handguns belonging to Benvolio (SWORD 9mm Series S), Mercutio (DAGGER 9mm) and Tybalt (RAPIER 9mm) are Taurus PT92 or PT99 9mm Parabellum pistols. The handguns used by Romeo, Sampson and Gregory (DAGGER .45s) are Colt M-1911 Combat Commander .45 caliber pistols. The other handguns used by Abra and Petruchio are Beretta 92FS 9mm Pistols. Ted Montague's "Longsword" is actually a South African MAG-7 shotgun.
  • Claire Danes was only three years older than the character she played. It was her first ever experience of performing Shakespeare.
