This is another of my favorite movies in the romance/drama category. I just loved the twist on the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet, and enjoyed the wit, humor and star-studded cast that this movie boasted.
Here's the Wiki page for those of you not familiar with the movie:
I thought Joseph Fiennes was delectable as the young Shakespeare, and I loved Gwyneth Paltrow as Viola. Judi Dench was perfect as Queen Elizabeth I as well. I also enjoyed seeing Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth in the supporting roles.

I'm sort of half and half about this movie. I've always enjoyed the actual 'creating the play' side of this film - all the humour is basically there, and I love all the characters. Ned's "He dies" is one of my favourite lines.
But as for Will and Viola, I just can't get into them as much. Plus, the ending doesn't satisfy me. GIVE ME THE HAPPY ENDINGS! (yes, I am that sap who is sad and throws huffs of disgust when couples can't be together, even if it's more realistic for them not to).
