Thank goodness I saw this with a drama teacher - I thought something wasn't quite right, but my friend assured me plenty of thematic content was removed.

This Midsummer Night's Dream shows how high the bar has been raised by Shakespeare in Love. The allure and cleverness of that film, not to mention its far more Shakespearean spirit, make it a hard act for a hodgepodge to follow.
