Rent the bbc version insteadBy KitKat from North London , 17 Feb 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]More 'Around the World in 80 Days' than 'Shakespeare in Love'; 'Casanova' attempts to fuse Blackadder style anachronistic humour with romantic drama, but misses on both counts and descends into farce. It has moments of silly humour, but just isn't anywhere near funny enough. Ledger is adequate as the man himself, but Sienna Miller is hopelessly miscast as the love interest and their central romance is entirely unconvincing. By the end, the film loses its tenuous grip on reality completely. It is unlikely to appeal to anyone over the age of twelve. Do yourself a favour and rent the bbc version instead.

Entertaining enoughBy CLickFilm (5 reviews) from Faringdon , 31 Jan 2010Simple light entertainment, I had doubts which were quashed quickly, all in all I found the film to have a simplistic Disney style about its plot.
Enjoyable and easygoingBy 8Katie88 (26 reviews) from York , 20 Jan 2010I watched this with my housemates. We all have different tastes in film, but everyone liked it.We didn't expect it to be so lighthearted and enjoyed the comedy.
