"have ye the wits to see it"
5 stars

Geez, Its about damn time someone made this movie :)

What a great idea this movie was, a fictional story about how Shakespeare got inspired to create Romeo and Juliet, and then Twelfth Night, and its good too!! This is a great story that actually manages to invoke almost as much emotion as Romeo and Juliet itself. When you step back and look at it, it really reminds me of a shakespeare play itself, with all the little witticisms and language. Costumes are great, sets capture the mood well, there's a sword fight too! I really enjoyed this movie. I'm no Shakespeare buff (i passed on a chance to play Trinculo in high school, silly me) but i really think Shakespeare would have enjoyed this movie (assuming it really was he who wrote all those plays, eh?)

Innovative and pleasant, I really like it, give it a shot.

12/23/98 Lou Pine, Jr. Anachronistic but highly engaging. Dench sublime/Paltrow & Fiennes superb/Affleck miscast. 4 stars
12/20/98 Mr Showbiz A rollicking romantic comedy that strikes a rare pitch. Bravura performances. 5 stars
12/16/98 Binky A vvery different tilt on Shakespeare. Great movie. 5 stars
12/04/98 Kirgo very clever and inventive! 5 stars
11/25/98 Linda Ben is in doubt it's going to be awesome. 5 stars
