Adapt a Shakespearean play for the screen in the worst possible way.

As You Like It as an episode of Three’s Company. Oh wait…

Dude, it’s a SLAPBOT, not a comfortbot. Its only function is to beat people up while singing in Italian.

Wait, that’s NOT what you’re supposed to get from a Helena Bonham Carter comfortbot?!

This would restore my faith in a benevolent god.

(Hmm - Djimon Housou as Othello, desirable for his beauty as much as enviable for his power - brings Ben Hur to mind)

superlative of bad, ill.
of the poorest quality or the lowest standard; least good or desirable.

(You seem a little confused, there)

(Though, actually, I don’t see Kermit as Macbeth …)

Yeah, more of a Duncan, I think.

I vote Gonzo for the title role.

Michael Bay production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream starring Shia LaBeouf as Oberon and Meagan Fox as Titania. They, along with their fairy servants, are revealed to be expatriated Autobots and Bottom turns out to be a really loud exploding Decepticon.

The Taming of the Shrew set in a modern high school? Because that movie sucked…

Or The Tempest with LaBeouf as Prospero

Miley Cyrus as Ariel, with Billy Ray as Sycorax

Peter Dinklage as Caliban (we did say ‘worst’)

Justin Bieber as Sebastian

Then we fill the “smaller” roles with Judy Dench, Maggie Smith, and Helen Mirren. And Ian McKellen. We cannot use Jacobi or Stewart - they would have too much fun.

Actually, if we add Jacobi and Stewart, and pick the right woman for Miranda, this could work … Miranda as the center and the Greater Six as an outer circle, as preying on the unsuspecting stars …

Okay, we need to find some one to produce this.

Let Keanu Reeves take a steaming dump on Much Ado About Nothing?

It’s been done.

Wilfred Brimley* IS *Romeo!

Margaret Rutherford *IS *Juliet!

Breathtaking . . . The Atlantic

Incredible . . . The New Yorker

Jesus Christ! . . . The Chicago Reader

Given that she’s biologically old enough to be his grandmother, you might have a point.

“Silver” versions of Romeo & Juliet have been done, but they seldom have the same heart-wrenching tragedy, because, well, old people aren’t that dumb.

(If they were, they wouldn’t have gotten old.)

Henry V: Directed by Paul Verhoeven, Screenplay by Edward Neumeier.

Darth Vader is Romeo. Captain Janeway is Juliet. C3PO is Mercutio. Worf is Tybalt.

Friar Lawrence is Chewbacca.

Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Taming of the Shrew
A Rockabilly Opera set in the Antebellum South
Performed in Blackface

Really? You’re introducing logic to this thread?

Wasn’t the Andy Kauffman/Bernadette Peters “Heartbeeps” a ROBOT R&J? How can that not be among the worst actual adaptations?

OJ Simpson as Othello.

We, uh, couldn’t find anybody willing to play Desdemona. But we got about 10000 people who wanted to audition for Iago!

Ryan and Tatum O’Neal in KING LEAR.

Henry IV starring Dustin “Screech” Diamond as Prince Hal and Rip Taylor as Falstaff, set in a Michigan truckstop.
