The plot of the film is largely unchanged from that of Shakespeare's Original play, but with a modern-day setting. Joss Whedon's filmic interpretation also suggests Beatrice and Benedick have been in love before the plot unfolds. 

Shot in black and white, the movie links itself to the romping romantic comedies of the 1930s and 1940s, and shows that Shakespeare really knew how to throw a party!
