Othello
8 June 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

I didn't believe my eyes either when I saw that Isaac from "The Love Boat," was playing one of Shakespeare's most famous characters. Well, Isaac doesn't mix any drinks, but then again he doesn't exactly make a splash playing the famous character either. After you contain yourself from the initial laughter, which was difficult for me, you have the unfortunate task of watching the rest of the film.
