I'm guessing you are asking about Act II Scene 5 and that you have never watched this scene played.

Something's wrong, because there was no 1997 movie of Romeo and Juliet. But if there was one (and probably you are thinking of the 1996 film directed by Baz Luhrman and starring Claire Danes and Leonardo diCaprio), how can a film be "wrong"? It is what it is. You may like it. You may dislike it. But it cannot be "wrong".
The director of the 1996 movie with Leonardo diCaprio and Claire Danes is Australian Baz Luhrmann. This movie is part of his Red Curtain Trilogy.The trilogy comprised of Romeo and Juliet, Moulin Rouge and Strictly Ballroom. Franco Zeffirelli directed the 1968 movie, and Renato Castellone directed the one from 1954. George Cuckor directed the 1936 Hollywood version, with John Barrymore as a splendid Mercutio.
If you are thinking of the Romeo+Juliet movie starring Leonardo diCaprio and Claire Danes, it was directed by Baz Luhrmann. Its date of that movie, according to the DVD box, was 1997. IMdb gives it as 1996. The Romeo and Juliet which IMdb does list as 1994 starred Colin Firth and Geraldine Somerville and was directed by Alan Horrox and produced by Thames television.
There are several movie versions of Romeo and Juliet. In 1996 Romeo and Juliet were portrayed by Leonardo Di Caprio and Claire Danes, in the 1968 version by Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey, in the 1954 version by Laurence Harvey and Susan Shentall, and in the 1936 version by Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer.
