Continuity mistake: In the gas station at the beginning, when Jamie Kennedy is singing "A pretty piece of flesh I am", watch his shirt. When he is first walking forward it is buttoned, then, in the next shot, it is open when he is licking his nipple. It's too quick a shot to have unbuttoned it.

Continuity mistake: Tybalt's tattoo changes constantly. When he's watching Mercutio dying on the beach, it's a plain simple heart on his chest. When Abra is forcing him to run away to his car (in the same scene) it is not there at all. Then when Romeo is chasing him in his car and Tybalt's car rolls over, as he crawls out, it is much more intricate, with black lines and fire. It also changes when he gets shot over the fountain.

Quotes

Romeo: Why then, O brawling love, O loving hate, O anything, of nothing first create! O heavy lightness, serious vanity, Misshapen chaos of well-seeming forms, Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health, Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!
