Much Ado About Nothing (1993)

Insults never sounded so fine.

Shakespeare could bring zingers when he wanted, and this frothy romantic romp mixes verbal daggers and happy endings under the careful eye of director/star Kenneth Branagh.

The cast was legendary back in ’93 — Denzel! Keanu! Emma! Batman!! — and it’s only gotten more so in the years since.

This was Kate Beckinsale’s film debut, and the future star of the Underworld series is like a living ray of sunshine here.

You can’t fault anyone — OK, maybe Keanu is a bit out of place… — but Michael Keaton is the true MVP, stealing every scene he slides through.
