He has written a play, which is a sequel to Shakespear's Hamlet, using some of the characters from that play, and a little time travel.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconIt's Coogan's breakthrough star performance that holds it all together. He's sensational.

C. Fuchs quote iconNot a tragedy by any means, Hamlet 2 is funny, but feels somewhat slapped together, much like the musical of the same name within it.

Tomatometer quote iconThe script's biting premise and Steve Coogan's endearing, off-the-handle performance make Hamlet 2 an hysterical -- if slightly painful -- ride.
