Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
1990
 
Director Tom Stoppard turns William Shakespeare's tragedy "Hamlet" topsy-turvy in this witty, existential puzzle box, presenting the play from the view of trivial characters Rosencrantz (Gary Oldman) and Guildenstern (Tim Roth). Beckoned to find the cause of the Danish prince's malaise, the duo strolls into the midst of the royal intrigue. But with no memory of Hamlet (or anything else), they're mystified by their mission.

Comedy, Spoof
 
Liked it a great deal, though many of the Shakespeare jokes went over my head like *whoosh*. Especially memorable was the rhetorical tennis game.
