A Midsummer Night's Dream Movie Review

A Midsummer Night's Dream is hardly Shakespeare's best work. Memorable only for the role of the impish Robin "Puck" Goodfellow (Tucci, here), Midsummer is a rambling and disjointed play that tries to blend plotlines involving unrequited love, fellows putting on a play, and of course, fairies. Does this blend very well? Not really, and Midsummer has always felt totally out of whack to me. Of course, if you want to see Calista Flockhart rolling in the mud and Kevin Kline turned into a donkey, well, whatever floats your boat.
