hamlet 2

This is a little late, but the other day I saw Hamlet 2.  First off, I only really caught bits of the preview, but it was a lot different than what I expected.

Steve Coogan, also in Tropic Thunder right now, plays a high school drama teacher in Tuscon trying to save his program.  Catherine Keener plays his wife, but I felt like her character was too much like other characters she’s played in the past.. maybe she’s being type-casted as a condescending tease.

The movie has an odd pacing that left me too much time to think about what was going on.  About around when Amy Poehler comes in though, the heart of the story unfolds and you’ll be glued to the screen.  I’ve seen people say it’s an “irreverent” comedy.  I guess.  I just think its something a little askew and overall pleasantly entertaining.

I came in thinking it might be just OK, but the fact that it has great music and odes to the Karate Kid topped it off and left me thinking I should see it again.
