Excerpt: This is a romantic comedy that truly lives up to the genre. Whedon uses his modern setting and its accoutrements as humorous grace notes to Shakespeare’s bon mots, adding classicism by rendering his digitally shot feature in black and white.

Excerpt: Whedon and Shakespeare are truly a match made in heaven. From Buffy to Firefly, The Cabin in the Woods to The Avengers, Whedon productions have always stood apart from the competition because of their entertaining character dynamics and wry, witty banter – and who writes better banter than The Bard?
Excerpt: To nitpick Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing is really being the worst kind of spoilsport. There is just too much to like here. Despite the usual wisdom that summertime movies are the big kind of blockbuster this filmmaker is generally known for, you’ll find no better celebration of good times and good weather than this inviting romantic comedy.
