Probably the only reason this adaptation worked is because of the amazing acting from Branagh and Thompson. With many of the Shakespeare adaptations the actors seem to try too hard to sound formal and still get the lines out. Branagh and Thompson on the other hand it just sounds like it rolls of the tongue and is beautiful sound to the ears. The whole adaptation itself is probably the best adapted Shakespeare play because it seems to know exactly how to present itself.

One of my all time favorites. Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson have fantastic chemistry. It's funny, sexy, a great romance, and absolutely beautiful. A must have!

Branagh and Thompson were great together. This movie is a good adaptation of Shakespeare's play.

Great performances by the entire cast! Wonderful costumes & gorgeous locations too. By far my favorite version & I've seen it more times than I can remember over the years.

It's been 20 years since I last watched Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing. It's still as fabulously funny. Branagh as Benedick is amazing and everyone needs to seen the hilarious turn from Michael Keaton. Here is Shakespeare at its most accessible to all.

Forse, il migiliore adattamento shakespeariano di K. Branagh.

It just doesn't get anymore infectiously jubilant than this.

It reminded me of a Diane Keaton movie.

I am reviewing this because , in my opinion, it is Shakespearian perfection. I can (and have) watched it again and again over the years. Guaranteed to make a Shakespeare lover out of anyone. And the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Be patient when first watching, it is amazing how the brain eventually adjusts to the difference in syntax. By the end, you forget it's Shakespearian prose.

A delightful effervescent romp through Shakespeare's wonderful comedy. Branagh and Thompson are delicious perfection as Benedick and Beatrice.

Shakespeare set to film. I never liked reading Shakespeare and watching is not much better. Updated dialog would have been better.

See this instead. The definitive version, the one where Thompson and Branagh sparkle with so much chemistry ... you know how when you hear a really good singer you like it so much you actually for a minute think you can sing too? Well, its like that kinda sparkle. And wit (that's Shakespeare's). And maybe the only film to make the Bard 100% comprehensible w/o having yer unemployed English Lit major friends 'splainin' every other line to you. And I think Micheal Keaton's great in this.

A total blast, it's an utterly delightful and wonderfully cheerful romantic-comedy that you will just fall in love with. A masterpiece. Director, Kenneth Branagh proves he is a true master of the interpretation of Shakespeare's work and has a wonderful all-star cast to back it up. It's extremely entertaining and tremendously enjoyable. The battle of the sexes has never been this much fun. Kenneth Branagh, Denzel Washington, Robert Sean Leonard, Michael Keaton, Kate Beckinsale, Emma Thompson and Keanu Reeves have sensational chemistry, they show great love and passion to the material and their characters, showing they are having a blast. Branagh and Thompson are excellent. Washington is magnificent. Leonard and Beckinsale are a revelation. Keaton is hilarious. A hilarious and heartfelt movie. A true classic. Shakespeare has never been this much fun. A real gem.
