Critic Reviews of "The Taming of the Shrew"New York TimesJuly 01, 2008
As for Mr. Zeffirelli's settings and the elaborate Renaissance costumes, they look very rich and mellow in the misty pastel colors that are used. But they, too, like Nino Rota's music, tend to monotony.VarietyJuly 01, 2008
Comedy is sustained in witty wedding ceremony.Chicago ReaderJuly 01, 2008
More debased Shakespeare from Franco Zeffirelli.TV GuideJuly 01, 2008
Purists will doubtless be upset by this flick, but the bawdy humor is engaging, the photography and musical score work just fine, and the most famous married couple in the world at that time are really having a ball here.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)October 10, 2007
Zeffirelli can't bring himself quite to the realm of radical Shakespeare. However, the film is a great vehicle for the two most famous stars of its era.Dispatch-Tribune NewspapersDecember 21, 2006
Fine Zeffirelli version with Taylor and Burton in good form.ÜberCinéSeptember 27, 2005
Not necessarily the best telling, but still wickedly attractive.Movie Mom at Yahoo! MoviesFebruary 19, 2004
Riotous fun.Film4May 24, 2003
High-spirited whoop-de-doo Shakespeare, not too adulterated, not too precious, and geared slyly towards an audience who may have read about this kind of marriage on the showbiz gossip pages.Movie MetropolisApril 21, 2002
...ranks among the finest screen adaptations of a Shakespeare play ever made.Apollo GuideJanuary 01, 2000
Despite its blatant lack of political correctness, there is considerable fun to be had in this film.Internet ReviewsJanuary 01, 2000
When [Zeffirelli] sticks to the play and to his actor's skills, the film comes alive. Sadly that was not as often as it should have been.
