During the Oscar season in early 1994 the Samuel Goldwyn company spent $10 million campaigning the film to garner the film Oscar nominations. They sent bulky packets to all members of the academy and played up the film in hopes of getting their film on the final ballot. The effort was all for naught; the film, though highly acclaimed and (unusually for William Shakespeare) a box-office hit, received no Oscar nominations whatsoever. See more »

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more. Men were deceivers ever. One foot in sea and one on shore, to one thing constant never. Then sigh not so but let them go and be you blithe and bonny, converting all your sounds of woe into hey nonny nonny.

Shakespeare intentionally created Don John, a villain with no cause and out of place, for the sole purpose of having a villain in advancing the story. Don John is supposed to be WOODEN , rotten to the core for no reason. Keanu Reeves actually played the role very well. I don't see how otherwise Don John could be portrayed. The movie is a fine piece, I particularly like the line "If I were a man" by Beatrice. I think Beatrice is one of the strongest heroines in Shakespeare's plays.
