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.

Oddly, what's supposed to be a great comedy about a bad play is in fact a bad comedy about a play that looks pretty frigging amazing

A high school musical that would make John Waters proud.

[A] dazzling little comedy.
August 22, 2008
Not since Death of a Salesman has failure been quite so entertaining.
August 22, 2008
Hamlet 2 is a likable movie even as it careens around like a wagging tail, but it's just too uneven.
August 22, 2008
It has an edge and degree of sophistication not seen in most summer comedies.
August 22, 2008
No matter how many jokes you pack around it, arrested development doesn't make for a very compelling dramatic arc.
August 22, 2008
Funny excuses an awful lot, and at its best, Hamlet 2 is nothing short of hilarious.
August 22, 2008
It has some hilariously humiliating jokes (Coogan really has no fear) and some surprisingly pointed real-life humor (Elisabeth Shue, you are a genuine sport).
August 22, 2008
I am not fond of listening to characters scream unfunny lines meant to send up the blandness of everyday people.
August 22, 2008
Fortunately, Coogan remains impressively unafraid of humiliation, pushing every joke just far enough to keep us watching. But he deserves more.

The real tragedy here is that someone might actually pay to see this dull mess of a movie.
August 22, 2008
The movie is an ideal showcase for the talents of Coogan.
August 22, 2008
When the father of one of the stars says, 'I'm simultaneously horrified and fascinated,' you'll know just what he means.
August 22, 2008
The more self-righteous it gets -- the more pious it is about offending people -- the less it works as a theatrical parody.
August 22, 2008
Let's just say that, when the parody looks indistinguishable from the parodied, something's gone awry.
