Shakespeare Retold: A Midsummer's Night Dream

Since when was A Midsummer's Night Dream all about the relationship between Theseus and Hippolyta? Too many unnecessary and unfunny changes were made from Shakespeare's play. And where was the final play about Pyramus and Thisbe? That's the highlight of Shakespeare's play, but it's nowhere to be seen in this Retold version. Also, this movie had a lot of unnecessary "intimate" moments. Except for my interest in Helena and whether Zander would realize that he really loved her, I didn't enjoy this version very much. Quite lame in comparison with the other three Shakespeare Retold movies.
