Movie Reviews

Superb movie/best from the bard
Barrie Bracken | Daytona Beach, FL | 09/05/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Half a century has passed since I read this play, and my memory, like all other good things, is not what it used to be. I can't judge this movie based on memory of the play, but I can tell you what this old man thinks of it. If you haven't seen it, watch it. If you don't have it, steal or buy it. Don't miss it, you'll love it. If you are able to read, read the play and enjoy it. If like me you cannot read anymore, watch the movie and laugh yourself out of bad humor. I am grateful to the producers and actors and all responsible for this for givng enjoyment when most needed.

"Excellent story, with a dynamic, easy to understand and upbeat presentation by an excellent cast. I really got the impression the actors were very much enjoying themselves.
Shakespeare without being stuffy."
