What to Buy the Shakespeare Scholar on your List for Christmas

Hamlet 2. Dir. Andrew Fleming. Screenplay by Pam Brady and Andrew Fleming. Perf. Steve Coogan, Catherine Keener, David Arquette, and Elisabeth Shue. 2008.  DVD.  Universal Studios, 2008.

Although I wasn't able to see it in theatres, I'm looking forward to seeing Hamlet 2 on video.  I've written as much before.

And If
I'm looking forward to it, I know that the Shakespearean you know best is also looking forward to it. Fortunately, it's being released in time for Christmas (the release date is December 21)!  And if enough of you buy it for your SSS (Special Shakespearean Someone), it will enable me to buy it for myself! We all win!  Click below to put it in your cart right away (so you don't forget):
