Critic Reviews of "Much Ado About Nothing"USA TodayAugust 21, 2013
Much Ado About Nothing is a delightfully spirited romp, filled with visual splendor, strong performances and flashes of post-modern absurdity.New YorkerJuly 01, 2013
The movie swings along, with a grace denied to some of Whedon's grander projects ...Chicago Sun-TimesJune 21, 2013
The magic holds. It holds from beginning to end.Chicago ReaderJune 21, 2013
This fast and loose independent production is enjoyable as a home movie, but not much more.Detroit NewsJune 21, 2013
A delightful mix of the modern and the Elizabethan, a sort of do-it-yourself re-imagination of a true comic classic.Philadelphia InquirerJune 21, 2013
There's no fire, and where their lines should ricochet with wit, they just spill forth, affably.FlavorwireJune 21, 2016
Loose, enjoyable, and sparkling, it's a movie that lives for the sound of clinking wine glasses and snappy patter.The Improper BostonianMay 12, 2015
It's a private party, for Whedon fans only.Laramie Movie ScopeDecember 08, 2013
This new adaptation of the Shakespearean play is very odd looking, like a modern film done on the cheap, in an ancient language, viewed on a 60-year-old television set.QuickflixNovember 24, 2013
The wine flows freely throughout the film, and likely, all through production too.Film Comment MagazineNovember 05, 2013
But it is the dark side of Much Ado-everything associated with the smearing of Hero's reputation and her lover Claudio's savage rejection of her-that emerges most forcefully hereYahoo! MoviesNovember 02, 2013
More familiar than fresh, but no less amusing. Whedon uses Shakespeare to remind audiences that the problems that existed in the seventeenth century remain relevant and embedded in the human heart.
