Whedon, without skimping on the tale’s tragic undercurrents, has crafted an irresistible blend of mirth and malice. show more
Even if snorkeling wasn't a major sport in 16th-century Sicily, where the action was originally set, the joyous spirit of the play has been preserved in this modest, homegrown production. show more
More than most adaptations, this is a film true to Shakespeare's practice of employing all means at hand to keep the crowd entertained. show more
Unless you are a Shakespere fan, I wouldn\'t recommend this movie. I actually love watching Shakespere theatre however I was bored to death during this movie. Didn\'t like the movie in black and white which didn\'t offer authenticity to the movie either. I do give it 2 stars for the quality of actors.
This was a great adaptation of this Shakespeare classic. Even people who do not like Shakespeare will enjoy this performance. Every actor is perfectly cast and their performances are superb. I will go to see it again before it leaves town.
While I am not a Shakespearean buff, I found this movie to be an admirable adaptation in its modernistic approach to this classic. The comedic conflict between genders as they relate to marriage is reflected in wonderful performances by the cast. Loved it!
