-->'''Ophelia''': There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray, love, remember; and there is pansies, that's for thoughts. [...] There's fennel for you, and columbines; there's rue for you, and here's some for me; we may call it herb of grace o' Sundays. O, you must wear your rue with a difference. There's a daisy. I would give you some violets, but they wither'd all when my father died.

* PassiveAggressiveKombat: Dear ''lord''. Everyone in the play engages in this in someway. If a character says something to another that outwardly appears thoughtful, compassionate, and constructive, chances are that its actually insulting, emasculating, and harmful when you read between the lines. ''Especially'' prevalent in Hamlet's lines to Polonius:
-->'''Polonius''': I mean, the matter that you read, my lord.\\
'''Hamlet''': Slanders, sir, for the satirical rogue says here that old men have grey beards, that their faces are wrinkled, their eyes purging thick amber and plum-tree gum and that they have a plentiful lack of wit, together with most weak hams.[[note]]In this last bit, Hamlet basically says Polonius has a flabby ass.[[/note]]

Since ''Hamlet'' is almost always performed with cuts (performing the whole thing usually takes almost four hours), arguably ''every'' production is an adaptation, some even switching out scenes for pacing purposes (like the 2010 version did as explained [[http://blip.tv/file/4634599 here]] and [[http://blip.tv/file/4631899 here]]. Sometimes the basic idea is what's adapted, more or less faithfully, and little or none of the original language is used.

* NotMyDriver: In the Almereyda/Hawke film, the scene where Hamlet intends to kill his uncle Claudius is played this way -- Hamlet replaces the chauffeur. Claudius gives his IgnoredEpiphany soliloquy in the backseat of his limo.

* A 1996 film starring and directed by Creator/KennethBranagh. This is a highly lavish, cinematic full-text[[note]]with the exception of a few transposed lines, and thus clocking in at around 246 minutes long[[/note]] version set in the 1800s, which includes Creator/BrianBlessed (as the Ghost) and a FallingChandelierOfDoom. With Creator/KateWinslet as Ophelia. Oh, and Creator/RobinWilliams as Osric, and Billy Crystal as the gravedigger.[[note]]The AllStarCast also includes Julie Christie as Gertrude, Jack Lemmon as Marcellus, Charlton Heston as the King of the play, Richard Attenborough as the English Ambassador, and Dame Creator/JudiDench and Sir John Gielgud as Hecuba and Priam of Troy.[[/note]] It's essentially ''Hamlet'' as an EpicMovie. Not financially successful, but critically acclaimed with some even calling it the greatest onscreen adaptation of Shakespeare. Was nominated for an Oscar for best adapted screenplay (which led to a lot of jokes in theatrical circles on who ''technically'' wrote the script). This adaptation is significant among film buffs for being the last visual narrative production shot entirely on 70 millimeter film for 18 years, before the the 2012 film ''Film/TheMaster''.
