Antony and Cleopatra

Well. I haven't un-enjoyed one of Shakespeare's plays this much since 'Troilus and Cressida.'

I have always thought of it as an overrated story. And now I know. It is. It was basically Romeo and Juliet for grown-ups.

Best Character: Eh, I don't know. I liked Antony. I really don't know why. There didn't seem to be very much to any of the characters, I guess Antony was the one one who stood out any.

Worst Character: Again, I really don't know. I didn't like Cleopatra. I didn't find her "mysterious'' or 'mesmerizing'. Merely somewhat stupid.

In a Word: Long.

Rated: PG13

Crowning Moment: Cleo assures Tony she could help him on with his armor. The very next thing she says is "What's this for?"
