Derek: That's cool the movie, I think is designed to be thought provoking. Sometimes that different perspective causes things to hit home. Seeing the movie engaged the visual for me and gave me something to relate to.

Warren: I think the mixture of ShakespearE lines and the writer's own dialog made it richer. It helps to tear apart any movie and everyone teaches me something.

Has so many wonderful lines, my favourite being:

FENNYMAN
Who is that?

HENSLOWE
Nobody. The author.

Slam bam! Love it.

And yeah, as Jack said (the only bit he said that I agreed with!) Tom Stoppard only did a rewrite - Marc Norman wrote the script. But he was told to "Britify it" - not a direct quote! - which was when Stoppard came onboard. You can see some distinctively Stoppardesque humour in there no doubt but poor old Marc hardly ever gets acknowledged for such an original approach to this subject.

I love the two levels it plays on - the obvious humour in the almost slapstick gags, as well as the smart and sassy stuff that a limited audience actually gets. Like the Simpsons - aiming successfully at two different audiences, and slaying 'em both. Definitely one of the stronger romcoms to come out of Hollywood. Almost up there with When Harry Met Sally. (But not quite. )

It's wierd how the best humour comes out of the darkest and most emotional situations. It allows the true depth of the characters to come out.

Jennifer,

Like one of the above posters said, it's been a long time since I've seen the movie, I wish I could be of better help, because I applaud you for going beyond your class to study the film and the script. Anyone with that willingness to learn deserves better than the pedantic posts you received.

I sincerely hope you continue to post about the films you're studying, as it's good practice (remedial for the pedants, of course) for us all!

Love,

Not-A-Know-It-All

Have to say there's no need to pay big $$ for classes, when I can study these things on my own.

A few of the posters gave me some good insight, that I wasn't aware of. At least here I can post about films and share insights with others. It will help us all.

Granted some of these films probably won't be anyone's favorite, including mine, but dissecting them can do wonders.

Thanx
Jennifer
