Romeo and Juliet Were Morons is a way the hosts respond to cliches in Tiradesverse movies that quote or reference Romeo & Juliet as a great love story. Romeo & Juliet is a tragedy by William Shakespeare about a couple of stupid, horny teenagers who kill themselves because their 3-day old relationship didn't work out. Despite this, an abnormal amount of couples have a tendency to compare their love affairs to a couple of dead teenagers and hold it as the standard of true love. Because most of these characters have a combined IQ roughly equivalent to a ball of lint, they probably never actually read the play.
Despite all this, still probably a better romance than Twilight.

- Juliet Bello and Wesley Beetle invoke this in A Talking Pony!?! because... his dad wants to turn the ranch into a mall?
- In the bluntest example yet, Bella Swan wakes up next to a book copy of Romeo & Juliet in the beginning of The Twilight Saga: New Moon
- Mega Shark VS. Giant Octopus
