You've never known Shakespeare until you've read him in the original
Klingon. :)

Or, a Shakespeare play with any science fiction setting. I've thought of
it often: Henry V in space. Imagine two opposing mile-long rows of
hovering battle-ships, and the commander of one side calling out over
the comlink: "I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips, straining
upon the start"...  Man, that would be cool!

Subject:        Correction on The Lizzie McGuire Movie

The quotation from Shakespeare is from Twelfth Night ("Some are born
great . . . "), not R and J, as I mistakenly wrote in my last post.  The
line is quoted by Lizzie's father (Robert Carradine) and attributed to
"William Shakespeare," but the play is not named.  Interestingly, in
this movie about a teenage girl loser who turns out not to be a loser,
the line is said as if were a taken from a Tony Robbins Positive Power
videotape or dime store self-help book.
