Much Ado About Nothing

“There are films in the world the highest and greatest purpose of which is to be delightful. Joss Whedon’s adaptation of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is exactly this kind of film, and because it’s utterly delightful, it’s utterly successful….Perhaps you know this story and perhaps you do not, but suffice it to say that Beatrice and Benedick have a complicated relationship which only gets more complicated when a gaggle of people show up at the house to create your basic chaotic Shakespearean craziness involving intrigue, revenge, and in this adaptation, a lot of boozing and some stuffed animals.”—Linda Holmes, NPR. “Fresh from saving the planet with THE AVENGERS, Joss Whedon makes Generation Fanboy safe for the Bard in his laugh-stuffed MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING; he even makes the play’s “hey nonny nonny” ditty hummable. The picture kept the crowd howling and prompted a standing ovation at Saturday’s premiere, but even viewers not enlisted in Whedon’s Browncoat cult will find much to like here”—Hollywood Reporter. PG-13. 107 Min.
