As soon as I heard about this production, I have been impatiently awaiting its release. That kind of buildup could set unrealistically high expectations, but Joss brilliantly adapted Shakespeare's original. The Whedonverse cast brought the characters to life in fresh and interesting ways, and this production achieved instant classic status for me!

Much Ado About Awesome!

What a fantastic job by one & all. I ususally hate when Shakepeare is sent in a different era than intended, but it is done with such aplomb that it actuallt enhances the experience. Plus, it should help create new fans, which is always a good thing.

Much Ado About Nothing - SEE IT!

This is an excellent rendition of Shakespeare's excellent play! I've been seeing plays by The Bard since I was a kid, and have always been a fan, but usually when the show starts I spend about 10 minutes adjusting my ear to the language. The quality of the diction of 80% of these actors is so high that I was there with them immediately. Overall the quirky nature of the film was fantastic, it was hilarious, it was moving, and the setting (Joss Whedon's beautiful home) really contributed to it. The acting was excellent. Most of these actors, as well as being a part of Joss's "rep company," have done Shakespeare before, and that helped. Whedon's score is excellent. Rally, I just can't say enough good things about it. See it, whether you love Shakespeare, or love Whedon, or none of the above, it is well worth a couple hours of your time!

It's more than nothing

Once I got into the rhythm of Shakespeare's dialogue, it is such a clever story. However, I didn't think the villains were that villainous. Very snappy - good humor - happy ending :).
