But the framing didn’t feel like that of a screwball comedy, but more like a particularly stylish television drama.

Then, it’s a sexual innuendo – “nothing” was an Elizabethan euphemism for what we now refer to with mock-delicacy as “lady parts,” the teeth of which Benedick fears too much and the purity of which Claudio prizes too highly, or so the title would suggest. Which is – I would argue – a severe decline from Shakespeare.

And it’s a pun on eavesdropping – “nothing” would have been pronounced similarly to “noting” back in Shakespeare’s day – which features prominently not only in the Beatrice-Benedick plot (who are both tricked into eavesdropping on their friends and, by that means, tricked into falling in love with each other) but in the Claudio-Hero plot (Claudio and the Prince are tricked by Don John into spying on a woman they think is Hero, and then the practitioners of the trick are caught by the eavesdropping members of the watch). This brings me to the one problem that most people have had with the movie, which is really a difficulty (not the same as a problem) with the play: making Hero’s virginity (we’re back to the second meaning of the titular “nothing”) seem like a plausible basis for the near-tragedy that unfolds.

One of my favorite adaptations of Shakespeare for the screen is “My Own Private Idaho,” which not only plays vastly faster and looser with the text and tone of Shakespeare’s play than Whedon’s quite faithful “Much Ado” does, but stars Keanu Reeves, who, notwithstanding his famous Canadian stage outing as Hamlet, is nobody’s idea of an accomplished classical actor (and anyway, that outing took place several years after he made Gus Van Sant’s film).

It seemed like a likely match, in other words; he wasn’t looking to adapt . I’m still surprised by that, because Whedon is so well-known for his rapid-fire dialogue.

And this would color the Prince’s reaction to learning that Hero wasn’t what she appeared – wasn’t a similarly shy and inexperienced girl, someone who would be well-matched with Claudio, but something altogether more . Or like the world in which Whedon has set his movie. The snorkel was a great visual idea, but I got the feeling Whedon didn’t have the time to embed it in the narrative.

We have evidence from that movie itself that the women in this world do not particularly regard virginity as a great treasure to be protected; Beatrice and Benedick slept together some years before, we are shown, and any number of other guests pair off or attempt to do so at the party without anyone batting an eye. Not knowing who Claudio is, nor the basis for the Prince’s affection, there’s no place for the talk about dishonor to land as a metaphor, which is what it must be since we can’t take it literally.His Dogberry isn’t just a bumbling idiot; he’s a tired veteran policeman who just wants to coast to his pension.It’s a great conceit – but something about the pacing of his first scene with the watch, and the way that scene is shot, kept it from coming alive.I also felt like there was something off about the camera’s perspective in some of the moments in Shakespeare’s play that are downright sitcom – in particular, the two scenes where, respectively, Benedick and Beatrice are tricked into believing that the other is madly but secretly in love with, respectively, him and her, which prompts each to reciprocate.Whedon has chosen, in each of these scenes, to be “with” the eavesdropper primarily – with Benedick and with Beatrice.And the knowledge that Don John either lied to him or was misled himself the first time doesn’t cause him to doubt him when he misleads him again.
