A ten minute review of Joss Whedon’s wonderfully pared down, intelligent, laugh-out loud funny version of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Filmed as a kind of palette cleanser between filming and editing AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, the movie has a kind of gonzo feel to it, and just goes to show that when you have world-class dialogue you don’t need special effects to keep us hooked. I love the performances, the way Whedon privileges the text, and Nathan Fillion steals the show as the comic relief. For more, take a listen.
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING played Toronto 2012 and is currently on release in the USA, Canada, the UK and Ireland. It opens in Brazil on July 5th.
The film is rated PG 13 in the USA and has a running time of 109 minutes.
