    Not funny. Tried too hard to be clever. That's 97 minutes of my life I'll never get back!

    Just another hamburger joint with mediocre burgs and slightly cold fries.

  1. Writer-director Billy Morrissette doesn't have much feeling for satire -- or for Shakespeare. This is a comedy for people who couldn't make it through the CliffsNotes.

    Blurs the line between black comedy and black hole.

    I have the curious suspicion that it will be enjoyed most by someone who knows absolutely nothing about Shakespeare, and can see it simply as the story of some very strange people who seem to be reading from the same secret script.
