Dear God.  I hope I'm not the only one who finds this rather
disturbing.  I see Shatner as being an egomaniac, and this only adds
fuel to his fire.  I'm all for the "updating" of Shakespeare-to a
degree.  But please!  Antony rapping?  Not to mention William Shatner
rapping.  I'm sure purists would find this as offensive as I do.  Am I
the only one?

I've seen "Free Enterprise."  It's fun - but Shatner is the best thing
in it, and he definitely has a supporting role.

The film is mainly about two guys approaching thirty who are still
finatics about the original "Star Trek,"  "Logan's Run" and various
comic book and fantasy shows.

As noted in the original post, Shatner plays a demented version of
himself who wants to play all the roles except Calpurnia in a musical
version of "Julius Caesar."  In addition to doing a rap version of Marc
Antony's funeral oration, he also uses a few lines of Shakespeare to
pick up a woman at a party.  I'm pretty sure they were Titania's lines
from MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM.

This fails to surprise me. For I have actually heard William Shatner
sing the songs of Bob Dylan.  Apparently he is more foul than foul
esteem'd.
