Tromeo & Juliet (JJC)

Note that this is not a 137 minute director's cut as reported on the slick, but rather a 107 minute cut as also released in the UK on DVD. The US version reportedly runs for 105 minutes, so at best we have an extra few minutes of footage. Either that or the DVD is faulty. The film is stored in two chunks, the first running at 64:20 (ending at the layer change) and the second at 42:48, making a total of 107:08.

The OFLC website lists the contents of the Tromeo and Juliet DVD as receiving a 'refused classification' rating on 31 October 2001. The applicant was Tribe Enterprises. On 7 March 2001 the VHS release was granted an R-rating for a 137 minute version.
