Much Ado About Nothing (2012) **

Admirable effort notwithstanding, this production of the Shakespeare play comes up short as entertainment. The modern dress and setting are distracting as is the horribly washed out and flat black and white cinematography. The acting is fine with Amy Acker a standout as Beatrice.

Dear Buck,
“For which of my bad parts didst thou first fall in love with me?” ; )

I give mirth and cheers to the Lady Beatrice as well. At least there were many pretty faces to look at... overall pretty good for a modern spin in Santa Monica affluence. Something for them to do on a weekend in their gorgeous homes and yards.

I also like this quote:
“I can see he's not in your good books,' said the messenger.
'No, and if he were I would burn my library.”
Good cheer and frivolity dear Buck ..poor the wine for breakfast and start the day right. Or vodka if you prefer! : )
