I'd be lying if I said I remembered any of it, but he popularized or outright invented a lot of words and that's cool.

Romeo and Juliet is one of his better written plays. It has humorous characters and a pretty original ending.

The only humorous characters I can think of off the top of my head are Iago and movie Hamlet.

Hamlet is a zero percent funny character.

The Nurse and Servant are gag characters. Mercutio and Benvolio also have some pretty funny lines when they poke fun at Romeo.

I feel as if that rendition sticks close to the original play.

The ending looked ridiculous so maybe not.
