Three sentence movie reviews: Much Ado About Nothing

I see a lot of Shakespeare and I mostly enjoy myself, but it can have a bit of take-your-medicine-quality, even in the more delightful plays, of which this is one.  However, I can say that this movie had not a whiff of cod liver oil about it and was the kind of charming where my front teeth dried out because I was smiling so much.  It was interesting to observe the cuts Whedon made* (I’ve seen this play a goodly amount, as it’s rather popular) and to watch the romances develop.

Cost:  $7.00
Where watched: Cinema 21, with Kelly.

*fear not, Whedon fans, he does not employ his usual Whedon trick of killing off favorite characters in dastardly and tragic ways.

  1. Dan absolutely loves this play (the Kenneth Branagh movie is one of his all-time favorite movies), so he kept suggesting that we go see this and I kept saying no. I had no idea that it was Whedon, or that it involved so many Whedon alums! I think I'll have to go see it now.

  2. we need to see this movie. we have almost gone to it a couple of times and then something has gotten in the way. it will happen soon and i can't wait.
