Much Ado About Nothing (2012) Rated PG-13

Much ado about nothingA modern telling of Shakespeare’s classic, Much Ado About Nothing. It focuses on two sets of couples in love and their play on words. Starring Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg

I’m not a huge fan of Shakespeare but I must say I really am not a fan of Shakespeare done modernly. With the actors spilling forth their lines in modern garb and the set looking like it’s a  contemporary middle class family. This just doesn’t mash. Add in black and white cinematography and you wonder which way is up. I think the cinematography would have worked if they made the film look like the Renaissance era either that or modernize the language and color it. The mixture just didn’t flow. The actors’ lines poured out of them but I was just to distracted to relish their performances. This film is a miss for me.
