A slyly macabre fantasia that works on its own demented terms.

It's a setup so easy it borders on facile, but keeping the film from cheap-shot mediocrity is its crack cast.

An uneven parody that sometimes amuses but just as often annoys.

Quite possibly the best "modernizing" of a Shakespeare tale in recent memory.

McBeth's personal karmageddon builds with comedy and tragedy in equal measure, without being as long as the original.

Very clever writing and great casting make this a comedy that's fun to watch even if you're not familiar with the source material.

If you keep a list of films you want to see one way or another, you would be doing yourself a service by keeping this film high up on that list.

It's not exactly a gourmet meal but the fare is fair, even coming from the drive-thru.

There are some truly wacky parallels with Shakespeare's play.

Underachieves only in not taking the Shakespeare parallels quite far enough.

The combined talents of cast and crew create a new take on an enduring drama that pairs nicely with a side order of kitsch.

As flaccid and undistinguished as star James LeGros's period wig.

This spawn of William Shakespeare and Ray Kroc has more fun with [the] thin premise than you might expect, mostly because of Maura Tierney.

A disappointment for those who love alternate versions of the Bard, particularly ones that involve deep fryers and hamburgers.

The fun is infectious -- the puns, in-jokes and referential asides will keep Shakespeare buffs busy and the rest of the audience entertained even as some punch lines zing over their heads.
