PG-13 for some sexuality and brief drug use. In theaters 6/21. Ok for kids 13+.

It's good to be Joss Whedon. Every time you make a movie, you get all of your closest friends together to act in it. Then you go from vampires to superheroes to musicals to science fiction to Shakespeare, all in the course of a decade. And people love it. They love you. And with good reason. Whedon knows how to tell a good story, and that's why it doesn't matter which genre he's working in at any particular moment. What matters is whether you've got good characters, snappy writing and a great story -- all of which this movie has, along with a classic lineage. The modern retelling of Shakespeare's comedy follows two pairs of lovers with different takes on romance and a way with words. Stars include Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion and more of Whedon's inner circle.
