Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Yep.
Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Yep.
Sex/Romance: There are a lot of naked people in the beginning. You mainly see a lot of bare butts and some breasts. Later in the movie there is a couple having sex in a window. You don't see too much, but you can hear them. But also, the whole point is romance. It's a comedy, but it's about love.
Music: Patrick Doyle did a great job with the music for this film, and my favorite piece was "Pardon Goddess of the Night." I actually got chills a bit when listening to that part. Also, he had a really fun cameo in the movie as well!
Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterward? : Nope.
Was there a food pairing? : Tacos! They were super messy but I made them and they were sooo good. I also made a batch of supreme fudge brownies and pulled them out early so they were nice and gooey. 👌
Thoughts: I don't really care to compare this to Much Ado About Nothing (2012), because they are both fantastic in their own ways. The only real difference was the feel of it (modern vs. more idyllic) and the 2012 version made a few more cuts from the original text.
The nudity and sex moment were a bit much for me.
What an amazing lineup of actors! The cast includes Emma Thompson, Keanu Reeves, Kenneth Branagh, and Denzel Washington among others. I have to admit, seeing Keanu's angry, brooding face made me laugh every time! But the actors were all great, the music was wonderful, the comedy was on point, and the atmosphere was idyllic and fairytale. Overall another beautiful adaptation.
Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : Yep!
In the End: 4 out of 5 stars, and please for the love of God somebody woo me...
