Storyline

Leonato (Clark Gregg), the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro (Reed Diamond) who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John (Sean Maher). Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and Claudio (Fran Kranz). While in Messina, Claudio falls for Leonato's daughter Hero (Jillian Morgese), while Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice (Amy Acker), the governor's niece. The budding love between Claudio and Hero prompts Don Pedro to arrange with Leonato for a marriage. In the days leading up to the ceremony, Don Pedro, with the help of Leonato, Claudio and Hero, attempts to sport with Benedick and Beatrice in an effort to trick the two into falling in love. Meanwhile, the villainous Don John, with the help of his allies Conrade (Riki Lindhome) and Borachio (Spencer Treat Clark), plots against the happy couple, using his own form of trickery to try to destroy the marriage before it begins.

Trivia

When Dogberry and Verges exit for the last time, they realize that neither of them has the keys to the car. Nathan Fillion and Tom Lenk improvised this off-camera as the rest of the scene continued. When Joss Whedon realized why the cast was laughing, he had the pair recreate the gag on camera. See more »

A film made for the perfect bourgeoisie of the 21st century.
5 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

More specifically, a film specially made to suit the perfect answer that would be given by the perfect bourgeoisie individual to the question: What did you do last weekend, my dearest?

Because I can't imagine that this film could fulfill any other purpose than that.

ANY theatrical representation (including your daughter's school play)is much better that this piece of unexplained black and white garbage.

The story is boring. The funny moments are VERY boring. And the acting is VERY, VERY boring.

If Shakespeare name was not involve in some way in this film, NO one, trust me, NO one would ever remember this film.

If you are not into actors hairdressing or interior home design, do yourself a favor and choose something else.
