Much Ado About Nothing

Rating = B-

This film of the Shakespeare play is done in black and white, contemporary dress (e.g., men in business suits), and American English, and with a location that looks very much like a very nice house in southern California. I had a hard time staying awake during the early parts. Still, it looks great and ultimately the story comes through. There is a good bit of humor but not enough to really call it a comedy.
