198 movies and TV shows quoting Hamlet in less than 15 minutes, because I thought that was funny.
These clips are extremely short (1-10 seconds are clipped out of each movie), and built into a new whole, so this falls legally under fair use.
This should replace the one I put up a few years ago.
Average clip length: 4.5 seconds.
Cute Girl commentary from Alicia Silverstone, Julia Styles, Megan Fox, Lindsey Lohan, Blair Waldorf, Busy Philips, Blake Lively.
Eight women as Hamlet including Katherine Hepburn, Maggie Smith, Eliza Coupe, Jennifer Saunders.
Kevin Klein twice
Vincent Price twice
Shelley Long twice
Eric Idle twice
Christopher Plummer, twice, once as a Klingon
Danny DeVito twice, in non-speaking roles
Robert Downey Jr twice (once more he is being spoken to, but you can't see him)
Two incarnations with vampires
Two incarnations with strippers (one male)
Two incarnations of X-Men
Three incarnations of Star Trek
Three incarnations of The Addams Family (who knew there were three incarnations of Addams Family)
Three incarnations in which audience members leave during To Be or Not To Be.
Three speeches end with a Hamlet saying he is tired of doing this.
