This review is from: Much Ado About Nothing [DVD]  (DVD)
I was really looking forward to this, and it did not disappoint. Joss Whedon does Shakespeare! What's not to love? I have the Kenneth Branagh/ Emma Thompson version of Much Ado, more traditional fare, but this was far funnier - Whedon is very good at humour. I think the modern setting did not detract, nor did the American accents. I liked the touch of it being filmed in Black and White: that can sometimes feel pretentious, but it worked. I watched it with the family (teenage son) and we laughed and laughed. I am a huge Shakespeare fan, and I think that he would approve of Joss Whedon's film.
