Out of the 3rd Season of Moonlighting
17 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Very tongue-in-cheek, breaking the 3rd wall, adaptation of Shakespeare. Or, should I say, "wigglestick," as it is a Shakespeare with license. A joy to watch. Based on Taming of the Shrew with Bruce Willis' character, David Addison, playing Pertrucio and Cybill Shepherd's character, Maddie Hays, playing "The Shrew" Katerina. This episode highlights the love affair between Moonlighting and its international audience in its day. Definitely a must-see for old Willis fans. This is why Die Hard came to be made. Co-starring Allyse Beasley, and (Risky Business, Revenge of the Nerds, Spy Hard, Southland Tales, Smokin Aces) Curtis Armstrong.
