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.
