To laugh or not to laugh - that is the question. And with Hamlet 2, there is most definitely only one answer - laugh laugh laugh!!!! Wildly inventive, irreverent and beyond entertaining...

We are never entirely sure what the hell happens, only that Hamlet is given a chance to set everything right. And that a lot of it is set to New Wave.

Some of it doesn't work at all, but much of it is both sharply astute and hysterically funny

I haven't laughed so hard in years. Coogan is pure brilliance...

That sound you hear is Shakespeare spinning in his grave after watching Hamlet 2 from the Great Beyond.

For anyone who ever took drama in High School, Coogan's character will surely ignite memories of quirky, even downright crazy teachers you may have encountered over the years.

The funniest Shakespearean sequel since Richard IV.

The play's the thing in Hamlet 2.

While they may be trying to "save drama," (the $6,000 a year Tucson High School luxury) they are also lovingly destroying it.

Silly, inconsequential fun with enough laughs to make it worth a trip to the megaplex.

The lowbrow humor in Hamlet 2 works consistently well, but much more intelligent jokes are launched from the wry lips of Catherine Keener.

a wildly uneven satire--not nearly as controversial or as funny as you might have expected.

Hamlet 2 has a lot on its mind, not all of it good. You can tell everyone involved here knows what they're doing... it's just that they have too many balls in the air and can't effectively juggle them at once.
