i've been seeing ads for

i've been seeing ads for "o", and i thought it looked sub-par... who needs another bad teen flick? however, it turns out that it's based on othello, and i've heard from several people that it's really good. so i decide to look up the movie. since it's an updated version of othello, they've of course updated the language, and i came across how now, dude?, a cheezy shakespeare to teenspeak translator. most of it was lame, but their translation for what's in a name? that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet was this:
"puff daddy", "p. diddy", whatever. he still sucks.
so true.

side note - the movie is directed by tim blake nelson, who portrayed delmar (my favorite character) in o brother where are thou. now i really have to see this movie.
