Shakespeare's classic comedy is given a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon's film "Much Ado About Nothing." Shot in just 12 days (and using the original text), the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick offers a dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.
Much Ado About Nothing is a delightfully spirited romp, filled with visual splendor, strong performances and flashes of post-modern absurdity.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 08.21.2013
The movie swings along, with a grace denied to some of Whedon's grander projects ...Anthony Lane, New Yorker, 07.01.2013

This fast and loose independent production is enjoyable as a home movie, but not much more.Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, 06.21.2013
