22. Especially
when we're talking about riffing on a mere title. This isn't a recast of King Lear, Hamlet, R&J, Homer's Odyssey, etc, all of which have been done innumerable times, it's a just cheeky reference to a known title. God knows, we've seen endless variations on The Unbearable Lightness of Being, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and yes, even Romeo and Juliet.
