Kenneth Branagh's charming, all-star rendition of Much Ado About Nothing comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are accessible in all three of those languages as well. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer, and a making-of featurette. This is a fine release from MGM/UA that should please Shakespeare fans as well as romantic comedy enthusiasts.
