  1. It's simple, sizzly and very funny.
  2. Murders aside, Mac and Pat are the most fun-loving Shakespearean couple to hit the screen, and Morrissette's answer to Lady Macbeth's damned spot is brilliant.

    Hovers curiously short of its full potential for mirth and mayhem. Still, the movie is more fair than foul, and it succeeds well enough as a freakish experiment and mockery of all concerned.

    Basically a one-joke film, but the joke is a good one.

    As Shakespeare adaptations go, Scotland, PA. is just a McNugget, but the actors help sustain the satiric tone right up until McBeth's lady finally gets that stain out the old-fashioned way, with a cleaver.

    Walken is so funny, he almost makes you forget this flick is one joke stretched thinner than Calista Flockhart.
  7. It's easy to accuse Morrissette of condescending to a bunch of yokels, but hardly anybody would hold that against him if the result had been hilarious instead of deadly dull.

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