Shakespeare in Love (1998) short review

Another movie I tried to love but only liked, mostly because Gwyneth Paltrow has an amazing capacity to irritate me in some films (and in others I adore her). It is, however, fun, romantic, and funny. The costumes were quite well done, with Judi Dench as an amazing Queen Elizabeth — the only bad note was Gwynnie’s really weird bad perm hair extensions.
