Bullies is a 1986 Canadian action-drama film about a feud between two families in a small town in a similar vein to the story of Romeo and Juliet. The film was directed by Paul Lynch, and stars Jonathan Crombie, Janet-Laine Green, Stephen Hunter, and Olivia d'Abo.
The peaceful Norris family moves to a small town and buy the town grocery store, only to run into the Bonds, a family that's been bullying the townspeople for years, and they begin to torment the Norris every chance they get. Cat Norris (Jonathan Crombie) begins seeing a girl named Becky Bond (Olivia d'Abo), whose last name is unfortunately Bond. In this Romeo and Juliet-esque relationship, Cat and Becky have to keep their relationship a secret, but when the feuding families find out, harassment is elevated to vicious assault.
