Hamlet 2 is a pretty good stay home on a Friday night movie. The story of a hapless teacher who just wants to put on plays inspired by movies is pretty funny. But then following it up on Saturday with Half Nelson, the story of a hapless teacher that just wants to smoke crack undid some of the magic. It was a good movie, but long with a lot of crack smoking. I never though I would say this, but I would rather have a musical number of “Rock Me Sexy Jesus.” Critics do not agree.
