"...and Keanu Reeves goes to jail for bad acting" works on so many levels....

Priceless. Just priceless.

Wow...Shakespeare can be pretty sick now that I think about it.

Excellent summaries! :) Much Ado About Nothing was my favorite, with Taming of the Shrew a close second.

Sporcle Moment: I get Henry V, Richard III and Troilus and Cressida but miss Romeo and Juliet.

These are hilarious, but I'm going to nitpick a few points (mark me down if you must, but I won't mind). Bottom is IN the play, but it's not his, it's Peter Quince's. Jaques does not hang out in the forest and be mopey; he joins Duke Frederick in a religious life and is mopey. The killers of the title character WEREN'T all senators, and we only see two of them die; the fate of the rest we aren't told. There is no mention of Macduff cutting off the main character's head, though it's been done that way in some productions.

I literally just saw Macduff and yelled "MACBETH!!!!!" annoyed I didn't get Hamlet though, was going to click it, but the mouse spazzed and I hit Othello...
