Branagh gets a hard time for Hamlet, I think, but I really like that adaptation. I like Much Ado About Nothing a lot as well. It's so fun. ...But Hamlet has more substance. (Duh.)

No knock against Hamlet but it's been done on screen so often. This production of Much Ado About Nothing was the first to get any kind of release and its probably the most enjoyable and accessible Shakespearean film ever. I say probably because Joss Whedon's new version of Much Ado is an arguable rival.
