"I'm no Shakepeare expert but I found this rendition funny and engaging and reviews such as this one overly harsh. As You Like It is supposed to be 'audience pleasing' -- pick out from it what you might like; this is exactly what is pleasant about this film. It becomes a (yes) somewhat silly story, an over the top farce of intrigue and love. Don't expect anything profound but it is eye-fetching; Bryce Howard as Rosalind iis very eye-fetching and alluring, Molina as the fool with an Eraserhead hairdo is a gas. Kline plays a morose Eyeore-like character -- as morose as the overly serious critics of this version seem to be (&in the movie he fades out as if he were a wraith-like morose side of Shakepeare). I also enjoyed the music for the film -- what's wrong with glutinous?"
