Full of "sparkling merriment" (The Hollywood Reporter), this sexy, sunny comedy positively sizzles as one set of lovers battles against a dirty trick, and another set simply battles -- each other! A military war has just ended, but the "merry war" between Beatrice (Emma Thomson) and Benedick (Branagh) rages on! Can their friends trick them into making love instead? For that matter, can another couple's devotion survive the evil Don John's (Keanu Reeves) vicious lies? It's up to blundering constable (Michael Keaton) to save the day so that the course of true love may yet run smooth!
