Just saw Casanova

Another Shakespeare in Love but a fun movie. No 4 letter words or gratuitious sex just fun typical comic formula for a comic movie

One remark "well you know the Catholic church can do anything" was funny and I hope there are not tree huggers that come out protesting...all in fun movie ...Not super great but worth the 5.00 I paid to see it.

I think it just came out, I tried to see it last weekend after seeing the trailer on tv but it was only in certain areas then.

Not sure what "tree huggers" has to do w/Casanova, but I always get a kick out of that term; It's usually used as a term of derision by people who can't fathom such frivolity...

'A tree,' they might say 'why, I don't even hug my family members... perhaps my favorite dog...'

I didn't know about this film so just did a quick search for reviews. They seem a bit in two minds about it but then what do they know...

...anyway, what I was going to say was that if you would like to see an excellent version of Casanova the BBC produced a very good series last year. Casanova himself was played by David Tennant who some might know is the new Dr Who. The story is told from the point of view of the aging Casanova wonderfully played by Peter O'Toole. A glorious over the top, funny series.

"No … gratuitious sex"

In a movie about Casanova? That would be like no boxing in a movie about Muhummad Ali.

I think the term "gratuitous sex" is an oxymoron anyway.

There was a minor amount of gratuitous sexual content, but not enough to placate anyone who might be expecting anything from the movie.

It was enjoyable, but not as funny or endearing as Shakespeare in Love. It was actually pretty ridiculous in it's entirety, like a classic Shakespeare "mistaken identity" comedy.

So it wasn't aimed at the 14-year old set?
