Rated PG-13 · 110 minutes · 1993
In this Shakespearean farce, Hero (Kate Beckinsale) and her groom-to-be, Claudio (Robert Sean Leonard), team up with Claudio's commanding officer, Don Pedro (Denzel Washington), the week before their wedding to hatch a matchmaking scheme. Their targets are sharp-witted duo Benedick (Kenneth Branagh) and Beatrice (Emma Thompson) -- a tough task indeed, considering their corresponding distaste for love and each other. Meanwhile, meddling Don John (Keanu Reeves) plots to ruin the wedding.

Creative Loafing Tampa Much Love for Much Ado Joss Whedon’s modern adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing is the best big screen Bard. by Kevin Tall 06/21/2013
Charleston City Paper Joss Whedon's take on the Bard is pale, amateurish This is the End isn't the only movie open right now where a bunch of friends get together and goof off in a famous person's house for two hours. Director Joss Whedon, hot off of The Avengers, collected all his actor buddies together to shoot the Bard's Much Ado About Nothing, using his own California home as the set and an abridged version of the original text as the script. It's his attempt to convince us he's more than just that nerdy guy who'll be overseeing Marvel's movies for the rest of the decade. by Jake Mulligan 06/19/2013
