Comment:      Re: SHK 21.0398 Gnomeo and Juliet

I have communicated poorly. My comment, "After you watch it and respond in 
outrage, consider this: It might be better than some of the productions of the 
play that you've seen," was not intended to say that outrage would be the 
appropriate response. Rather, since we do have purists among us, I intended to 
suggest that the movie might be better than any number of dismal but "pure" 
productions of R&J that I've seen. I expect I'll be highly entertained by this 
movie. I've had another reminder that the "tone" I was thinking in as I wrote 
that comment was not transferred in the words I used. Sorry about that.

If it makes a pile of money, like enough to buy a cozy place in Warwickshire to 
keep the wife out of the city, who cares?

Shakespeare would be in awe. He couldn't write garbage. I bet he tried.

Disney was a very good businessman, just as Shakespeare was.
