He's A Maniac

When Hamlet 2 played at Sundance in 2008, it was such a hot prospect there was a bidding war.  But like some other Sundance hits, it flopped in theatrical release.

I didn't think much of it either at the time.  Since then, I've seen it on TV now and then and I've turned around.  It's no classic, but it's got a fun, loose feeling, and Steve Coogan's hopeless high school drama teacher is a great comic characterization.

My main complaint is that the big numbers at the end, while not bad, aren't quite good enough after all the build-up.
