A magnificent stage performance. The first half runs through 36 of Will'splays, at about 2 minutes a play. The second half is the funniest productionof Hamlet you are ever likely to see. These three guys provide one of themost energetic and comic stage performances possible. And they involve theaudi...
I first saw this film in my drama class a few years ago. It was cruel ofthe teacher to break up the showing, just a little bit each day. This isone that you can watch over and over again and still fall out of yourchairlaughing. Memorize it, quote it, perform it. It doesn't get any betterthan thi...
Oh . . . my . . . god. I just saw this movie last night and it was thebestand the hardest laugh I'd had in a long time. My back was killing me bythetime the movie was over. The costume changes (if you could call them thatby the end of the movie) are great, the vomiting is great, and the digs atac...
Most comedies based upon the works of others have a tendency to start withan inspired idea, but in the end don't come across as well as they shouldhave (think _Bridget Jones's Diary_). Here, on the other hand, is quitepossibly the funniest thing ever done on a stage anywhere. The threemembersof the ...
This filming of a 3 person stage act is hilarious even if you know littleabout some of Shakespeare's plays. The plays you are most likely to knoware emphasized - Romeo & Juliet and Hamlet - with sly contemporary asidestothe audience mingled amongst the sometimes don't-blink-or-you-will-miss-itperfo...
I first encountered this grandly amusing entertainment as a liveproduction at my university campus some years ago. My son and I decidedto to go based solely on the play's title, and a winking caricature ofShakespeare displayed on the poster. Little did we know what that winksignified, as we had no i...
I first saw this filmed version in my freshman year in high school whenI was just starting to appreciate the works of Shakespeare, and thishas just made me fall in love with the Bard more. Ever since I firstsaw this, I've seen it hundreds of times and even read the script, onlyto find myself still l...
From the start to the finish, this is one of the funniest things thathas ever been filmed from a stage show. In under and hour and a half,this show goes through everything, Romeo and Juliet to Hamlet (forwardand backwards). All the comedies are packed into one play. Sadlythough, they claim that it's...
I had seen bits and pieces of this before, mainly done bycompetitors in speech and debate tournaments. I found the scriptfunny, but there was always something lacking in the competitors.When my mom, aunt, and I had the opportunity to see the entireoriginal play in London, I discovered why! Not onl...
Do you know that it is possible to see all 37 plays of the playwrightwho is considered by many as the greatest ever lived in the show thatis under two hours? I did not - until yesterday when I saw The "ReducedShakespeare Company - The Complete Works of William Shakespeare(Abridged)" slapstick show t...
Only this could contain the unholy pairing of wit and stupidity, rollit up in insanity and call it brilliant. Having just seen it, I mustsay it's one of the better(if not the best) satires of Shakespeare'swork.A great performance is given by all actors, who you can tell arededicated to their craft. ...
As a high school (British Literature) English teacher, I share parts ofthis amazing show with my students so that they can appreciate the witthe Bard. My students love the Hamlet finale best of all. That beingsaid, of course they adore the Romeo and Juliet opening segment and theOthello rap. My kids...
I saw this live in London in 1996. At the time it was just a show tosee to pass the time. I had no idea.From the beginning, it was one howling, screaming laugh after another.I was in tears and had nearly wet myself by intermission -- had to runto the bathroom just to keep from wetting myself in the ...
Painfully bad renditions of Shakespeare highlights, accompanied byslapstick comedy along the lines of "Man wears dress" and "Man hitshead". This is the black stinking pit where comedy goes to die. I wouldrather come down with colo-rectal cancer than watch this again.I do have to admit I didn't watch...
