#27: Much Ado About Nothing (2012) - Joss Whedon

April 4, 2019

This week we have committed false report; moreover, we have spoken untruths, secondarily, we are slanders; sixth and lastly we have belied a lady; thirdly, we have verified unjust things; and, to conclude, we are lying knaves. All this is true, except the lady bit, as we did not watch Hands on a Hardbody as promised. Instead we watched Joss Whedon’s adaptation of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. This is Ashley’s favorite Shakespeare play due largely to the spirited banter of Beatrice and Benedick. Dave talks about settling into the Shakespearean dialect for the first time since college and the fine stable of actors that Joss Whedon has pulled together. Plus passing mentions of Buffy, Kurosawa, Cary Grant, and Keanu Reeves’ finest performance, for man is a giddy thing, and this is our conclusion.
