100 Greatest Romance Movies - #50: Shakespeare in Love

This is my entry for the 50th Greatest Romance Movie - Shakespeare in Love. You can check this movie out along with all the other 100 Greatest Romances over at my website.

This is actually a very sweet movie that follows the (fictional?) writing of Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. I think the plot line was very well done, interspersing lines from Romeo and Juliet into the the actual movie as inspiration for the play itself. You would think that something like that would feel forced but I think they pulled it off rather well. The movie also has humor interspersed throughout the movie but not too much that it would be considered a comedy. All in all I think a must watch if you are in the mood for a nice romantic movie.
