Romeo and Juliet - Whose Line?
At the beginning of the movie, right after the first brawl, it seems like Hollywood got their lines messed up. See they have Montague saying Capulet's line "Give me my long sword, ho!" Now this goes on through out the entire scene, getting Montague and Capulet's lines crossed, and Lady Montague and Lady Capulet's lines crossed. Sometimes they're right, sometimes they're wrong. I can understand cutting out lines, but giving lines to the wrong characters? Please!

They meant to do that for a purpose. They also cut parts of scenes out, many lines, as well as entire scenes. It was just to shorten the movie I guess (because the play would've been 3 hours long) or the director wanted it that way. That's not a slip up. I'm sure they read the actual script numerous times before making decisions of where to cut lines, etc.

This is because it doesn't matter what family is saying what lines. Notice how the Capulets seem like the bad guys & the Montagues the good?? In the other version and in the play, yes the lines are reversed but it's not an important thing.
