Coogan's Best US Film To Date
- Hamlet 2 review by CP Customer
Hamlet 2 is a real surprise from the Hollywood machine. The premise is tongue in cheek as in theory no sequel to Hamlet's all out finale could exist. However a typical plot mechanism enables Coogan's barmy drama teacher to dream up a powerful and to many, an offensive musical. The play is the backdrop against which censorship, bible bashing, marriage and cutbacks are all played out. The end result is a surprisingly original and laughable tale.
