This was showing in my local theater, so I went for the 4 o'clock showing. It took a little bit for my brain to remember how to understand Shakespeare, but overall I loved the film. There were some things that could possibly have been a little better, and a lot of things that couldn't have been. Then, I got the chance to go again to the 7 o'clock showing. I didn't hesitate, and on second viewing it was even better. Were there a third showing, I probably would have gone again. Usually I'm too cheap to go to the theater, today I went twice. And while I am a serious Whedon fan, I'm not entirely blind about it. I'm not sure if I'll ever feel the need to re-watch cabin in the woods, but much ado is a definite must own, and I just hope they put out a physical (rather than just direct download) of the soundtrack.

Do you remember Kenneth Brannagh's delightful version of this play? Well, Josh Weadon's is completely different and yet equally wonderful. A fine, naturalistic style of acting suits the elegant black and white photography and the modern day setting. The American cast speaks the language in a wonderfully clear and natural way. Nathan Filion does not view Dogberry as a chance to steal the film, but lets the character and his actions speak for themselves (with a little subtle slapstick); in the Dogberry scenes, this film is superior to Brannagh's which was burdened by an overly ingenious interpretation of the character. I can only hope that Josh Weadon and his friends will spend a few more weekends working up some other Shakespearean comedies - and maybe the tragedies, too.

This production of Much Ado About Nothing should fail on so many levels. It's the original text, shot in present day California, in black and white, featuring actors who probably never did Shakespeare before, on a limited budget, with a tight schedule.
And yet, this film is so entertaining, I can only hope director Joss Whedon plans on filming every Shakespeare play.

The masquerade/garden party scene, alone, is worth the price of the DVD, which is not to overlook the many great performances.
First and foremost, Amy Acker's Beatrice. Then, there's Alexis Denisof, delivering his lines as Benedict while jogging up and down steps without missing a beat. Also, who knew Garfunkel and Oates' Riki Lindhome was such a good actor?

When I went to the theater, I wasn't sure I would like this version of Much Ado. Now, I have the DVD so I can watch countless more times.

Despite it receiving such amazing reviews I went into this movie not sure what to expect. I am a big Whedon fan so that wasn't the issue, it's just I know the Kenneth Branagh/Emma Thompson version so well and love it. Joss's version is now right up there beside Kenneth's. Joss, I apologize, I should have known (but I'm still not happy about Tara and Wash).

I first saw this movie at TIFF and loved it from beginning to end, but I wondered if some of the reason it was such a delightful experience was because I got to watch it with the incredible cast and the incomparable Joss Whedon. But when I watched it again on DVD, I realized the magic was all in the movie and that getting to watch it with the cast and Joss was just the icing on the cake.

Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof are brilliant in the lead roles. Nathan Fillion and Tom Lenk are comedic genius. I can't imagine these roles being performed any better. And the rest of the cast was perfect.

I literally smiled from beginning to end of this movie. Delightful is absolutely the best word to describe it.

This is the best film I have seen of Much Ado About Nothing, and one of the best Shakespeare films. Josh Whedon has modernized it--the setting is his own house--without distorting the plot or characterization in any way. Much of the play is in prose--a rarity for Shakespeare--and this helps the sense of timelessness which is enhanced by a modern setting. This is a very funny play, but too often directors and actors will overdo the comedy. Not so here. Dogberry, for me Shakespeare's best comic character, is played with a straight face by Nathan Fillion (the Captain from Firefly). As a result Dogberry's hilarious verbal errors--"Be vigitant, I beseech you"--are dropdead funny because the actor/character does not know they are. Amy Acker and Alexis Denisov are charming as the mature lovers Beatrice and Benedick. Seah Maher (Simon, the doctor, in Firefly) quietly villainous as Don John; and one of Shakespeare's wisest speeches, Friar Francis's after the ruined wedding, is beautifully spoke by the British actor Paul M. Meston. The black and white filming only adds to the play's realism. Kenneth Branagh's colour version has stood the test of time, and is a good alternative with its abundant energy and Patrick Doyle's splendid music. But Josh Whedon has surpassed Branagh with a subtle, understated, funny, and intelligent version of the play.

This film is a beautiful and seem less Shakespearian adaptation. I absolutely love the story and the cast did not dissapoint.

I'm a fan of Shakespeare and I've seen Much Ado about Nothing done very many ways. I love the way this version was done and black/white suited it better than I would have imagined. The cast was fabulous.
