Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: 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.
Fresh: Intermittently enjoyable!
Fresh: Sparkling with moonbeams and wit!
Fresh: A playful, sexy piece of work -- just what the Bard might have conjured up for a movie adaptation of his beloved spring-fever comedy.
A movie of....DREAMY proportions
A reasonably faithful adaptation of Shakespeare's original play with a 19th century twist added for good fun. The movie itself is rather low budget in terms of costumes and special effects, but the acting is lovely and the scripting is exactly as our dear William wrote it. Please take the time to purchase this wonderful work of art!
I was reading the book
In my class we were reading this book and comparing this movie to the book. I had to see it! and i love it! this movie is very well done and very close to the play/book!! I recemend it! 100%!
I had just seen this movie on VHS at a friend's house and was so thrilled to find this available on iTunes! Each actor involved gave a wonderful performance and it was especially enjoyable to see actors that I never would have dreamed in such roles, (Christian Bale as Demetrius and Kevin Kline as Bottom) play their roles to such a T. A must-have for any lover of Shakespeare!
