Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

If you've ever read Hamlet, you're probably familiar with the scumbags of the story, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Well, this movie proves that they aren't such bad guys; they were simply misunderstood! This is a comedic version of Hamlet told by the a different point of view. It has its confusing moments and many of the jokes are directed only to fans of Hamlet, but the material present in this film is usually very clever and funny. The director has done a fine job adapting this film from his whimsical play.
