Much Ado About Nothing by William ShakespeareMuch Ado About Nothing, abridged.
CLAUDIO: So, um, Hero, I sorta maybe like you a whole lot will you go to the prom with me?
HERO: We should get married! Squeeeeeee!
BEATRICE: Pfft. Love is for stupid losers who are stupid.
BENEDICK: You know, you might get laid more often if you weren’t such a cynical bitch all the time.
BEATRICE: Fuck you.
BENEDICK: Get in line, sugartits.
*audience is beaten over the head by sexual tension*
DON PEDRO: Hey everybody, I had a great idea! Let’s make Beatrice and Benedick fall in love!
EVERYONE: YAY! MEDDLING!
PRINCE JOHN: So, I think I’m going to break up Claudio and Hero.
BORACHIO: Really? That’s your dastardly scheme? How do we possibly benefit from that?
PRINCE JOHN: No, see, I don’t like Claudio because my half-brother likes him, and I hate my half brother, so…wait. Okay, so it’s actually a really pointless plan that only serves to create conflict. But it’s the only way I get any good scenes in this thing, so MISCHIEF AHOY!
BORACHIO AND CONRADE: YAY!
BEATRICE: Hey Benedick, you still suck donkey balls.
BENEDICK: I fart in your general direction! Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time!
BEATRICE: I dont want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper!
PRINCE JOHN: So guess what Claudio? Your woman totally cheated on you. I saw, I was there.
CLAUDIO: OMG I HATE THAT WHORE.
DON PEDRO: Despite the fact that he’s a bastard in all senses of the word and has no reason to be helping me or my friends, I think we should believe John without proof or even asking Hero’s side of the story.
CLAUDIO: Hero, you’re a shameless whore and I hate your stupid face!
PRIEST: Great job, now Hero’s dead from sad.
CLAUDIO: OMG I AM SO REMORSEFUL. FORGIVE ME, DEAD HERO!
HERO: Pysche! I’m really okay!
BEATRICE: Luckily THIS time the priest’s idea to fake a girl’s death to solve all her problems actually worked, instead of backfiring horribly.
BENEDICK: Hey, that’s pretty funny. You know, I guess you’re not that bad. I think I love you, and stuff.
BEATRICE: Yeah, I guess I kind of love you too.
ANTONIO: Close enough. Now off to kill Prince John!

Much Ado about Nothing opens today in limited release. But one of the many beautiful things about Shakespeare is how flexible it is in terms of setting. Much Ado about Nothing is a romantic-comedy based on deceptions both playful and malevolent. Meanwhile, Beatrice and Benedict continue to snipe at each other through a witty war of words until the supporting players trick the pair into believing they have feelings for each other. Love is no match for deception, but you get two stories: one is a bit of a melodramatic tale of two romantics Don John is trying to turn cynical, and two cynics that their friends are trying to turn into romantics.

This comparative approach will also allow us to highlight different aesthetic approaches, from a semi realist, semi filmic interpretive mode for the first to a more distanced and post-modern stance often verging on film noir genre for the second.

We do not have many films on which to judge Joss Whedon as a filmmaker. Much Ado About Nothing , which opens in theaters today, is technically his third film, but it is in some ways our first opportunity to truly judge Whedon's abilities as a director of cinema. Closely adapted from the Shakespeare play, Much Ado offers little opportunity for Whedon to rely on his well-known facility for clever dialogue or shocking plot twists; the text forces him to act as a director and not a screenwriter with a camera. Its now-legendary tight shooting schedule — it was filmed over Whedon's two-week vacation in-between principal photography and post-production on The Avengers — likewise serves to reveal the inner core of Whedon the director. Working that quickly, artistic decisions must be made with the heart and the gut instead of the head.
Much Ado About Nothing. The title itself could serve as a rebuke to the Hollywood blockbuster. But in the case of Joss Whedon's adaptation of Shakespeare's notably modern prose comedy, the more appropriate term might be "reprieve"--not merely for filmgoers already exhausted by the usual summer litany of sequels , threequels , and superstar vanity projects but, more uncommonly, for the director himself. In October , when Whedon had a few weeks' worth of vacation in the midst of editing The Avengers --pretty much the contemporary definition of a Hollywood blockbuster--he opted to forgo a planned trip to Venice and instead spend his "downtime" Even for a director known for his outside-the-box projects--in , Whedon circumvented the disputes of the Writer's Guild strike by creating the online musical Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog --this intimate adaptation of Much Ado represents a unique cinematic experiment. I spoke with Whedon about the film, which opens in select cities today, on the phone last week.
