As one of Shakespeare's comedy, I find myself wonderfully impressed by the modern day retelling of the story. Done with the Shakespearean dialog, the actors did well to keep in the spirit of The Bard. For my own edification, however, I had to keep the subtitles on to make sure I got the full story.
Like most films from the era, the movie played the high school stereotypes cranked to 11. I can't say there was a lot wrong with the film, in fact the gender-bend stories are always amusing to me. But I feel I've seen better renditions of this story.
