YMMV: Shakespeare Retold
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Frequently if you watch Doctor Who.
- Values Dissonance: The comedies in particular work hard to avert this in the adaptation: for example, by having Hero realise her need for independence from controlling men and so refuse to take Claudio back at the end of Much Ado; by having Petruchio become a contented househusband while Kate continues her career in The Taming of the Shrew (essentially a Gender Flip of Kate becoming a meek and compliant wife at the end of the original); and by having the Dream end with the older couple renewing their wedding vows instead of a bunch of twenty-somethings - who've only just sorted out their complex love lives and have only been with their current partners for a couple of days - getting hitched immediately.
