Shakespeare For all

English teachers everywhere, rejoice! Joss Whedon reminds us why Shakespeare is great in a fresh production of Much Ado that - gasp- a contemporary audience can relate to. Beautifully conceived in black and white, the viewer feels like he is a guest at a really cool house party. Although I like Nathan Fillion, I wasn't sure that Dogberry could really be worthy of all the critics' praise . He absolutely is - what a scene-stealing performance! He mops up the floor with Michael Keaton's take on the role in the earlier film. Go, enjoy!

There are so many people who have never been exposed to Shakespeare. There are also a number of people who don't understand Shakespeare - it's hard. But I think this movie would help that situation. Set in present day, it shows how universal and everlasting the Bard's words and situation really are. The acting was terrific and I was sorry when the movie ended. Sure hope Josh Whedon does a few more of these.

A great movie of my favorite Shakespearean comedies. Joss did an amazing job with this. Wonderful cast and a great interpretation. What is not to love. Go see it...now.

Beautifully filmed, wonderful cast -- in minutes I forgot the dialogue was centuries old and still laugh out loud funny.
