'Much Ado About Nothing' Review: The Fault Lies in the Co-Star

If we were grading "Much Ado About Nothing" purely on daring, Joss Whedon would deserve heaps of praise for following up one of the highest-grossing movies ever made, "The Avengers," with a low-budget Shakespeare film, reportedly shot in just 12 days in and around the adapter-director's house.

Would that the movie itself were as fresh and bold as its own production; while Whedon, no stranger to witty repartee himself, has a feel for the wordplay and japery of this classic romantic farce, the final results are disappointingly mediocre.
