Critic Reviews for A Midsummer Night's Dream
Respectful of the text, exquisitely designed and lustily played, it is a model Shakespeare adaptation.
Bold and impressive, Reinhardt's screen version of his famous Hollywood Bowl Shakespearean production was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar.
...overdone, overproduced, overblown, overacted.... Shakespeare gets rather lost in the shuffle, but it's hard to deny the film isn't fun to watch.
Feast for eyes and ears Shakespeare whimsy
Audience Reviews for A Midsummer Night's Dream
awful, boring and boring and long. ugh......
I absolutely hate overtures, and this movie has a long one! At least it doesn't have an intermission, though. I like Shakespeare, but I've never really been a fan of this story, it's really incredibly too silly, and not even that funny. What I did like was the actors and the beautiful sets and costumes. The only actor I didn't like was Rooney, he was so annoying, I couldn't stand him. Overall, a so-so movie, if you are a fan of the story, you will find it more interesting than I did.
