Hamlet 2


USA 2008, 92 minutes
Dir. Andrew Fleming 
Genres: Comedy / Black Comedy


Aroview: Steve Coogan goes American for this comedy as a failed actor turned high school drama teacher as he tries to stage a musical sequel to the most famous play of all time.

Perhaps just too silly for those expecting something more satirical (it is Shakespeare, after all), this gets its laughs through Coogan's hell-for-leather performance that never feels self-aware despite occasionally slipping into dreaded 'low-brow' territory. He's well complimented by a sharp turn from Keener, who brings the subtle smarts.
