Oh so bad
25 May 2004 | by (Warwickshire, England) – See all my reviews

This is mind numbingly bad. Camp acting, gabbled lines - they clearly assume the audience will not understand anyway, so they just play it for slapstick. Absolutely no redeeming features. All directors should watch this to understand how to make a make a mess of Shakespeare. Avoid at all costs. It is badly cast, poorly acted, badly directed and the critical taming scenes badly cut. This is just the sort of rubbish that puts people off Shakespeare and it is entirely the fault of the production and not at all the fault of the material. If you are studying the play, this will not help your understanding one bit. In fact you'd be better watching "10 things I hate about you" for all the liberties it takes.
