It's called synchronization, fellas." Timothy discovers in Shakespeare's prose a recipe for a magical pansy, which when sprayed in the face of various townspeople allows them to "walk in his shoes". I am glad that I watched it, then watched it again, and... watched it again. What's worse is, they win out! Soon, just about the entire town are captured in his web of mischief. The Midsummer Night's Dream mash-up is quite wonderful, but the plot veers off into the ridiculous when it should have stayed in the charming and touching world in which it begins. Some scenes are beautiful. The story focuses on the appealing Timothy – a gay and out student at an all boys prep school in small town USA – frustrated at the narrow-mindedness of many of the people around him. An ambitious, colorful production sense (with beautifully scored musical interludes) captivates the attention for a spell; however, the third act (switching the gays back to their hateful hetero selves) doesn't exactly inspire the quirky sweetness director and co-screenwriter Tom Gustafson was probably aiming for. The idea of taking that one element of the original story and bringing it into the real world is amazing, and I find the havoc he wreaks with it more than amusing. Nathaniel David Becker exudes the perfect balance of hunky appeal, lovely singing voice and earnestness to make us understand why Timothy would be entranced by him and make us root for their union. It is TRUE to Shakespeare as well as if the story is EXACTLY what Shakespeare had in mind. I love the modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream.

Taking the concept of a "love potion" (the elixir which, painted on the eyes of a sleeper, will cause the "victim" to become enamored with the first he or she sees on awakening) from Shakespeare's MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM (being done in a high school production at the behest of a strangely "arty" teacher), but eschewing all the other substance of the play, WERE ALL THE WORLD MINE is a semi-musical whose healthy but overly optimistic premise is that bigotry will not survive experiencing the object of the bigotry first hand.

Beautiful scenes, good acting, great concept / plot, absolutely rapturous music... this movie made my heart melt, made me fall in love with the two main characters. Love the music, the acting is fairly decent for this kind of film, and the plot is awesome! Tanner Cohen reminded me of Adam Lambert (whom I'd love to see actually play "Puck") in this over-the-top but enjoyable musical spin on Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

It’s all on Hulu. The director seems infatuated with him. Not to mention anything involving Shakespeare automatically gets a thumbs up from me, especially modern adaptations or ones that re-envision a classic plot in a new way, as this did. This film is a fantasy, it's sole objective to entertain and to make us dream, to get us away from our dull everyday existences and just enjoy ourselves. I love Tanner Cohen's voice; he's the absolute star of this movie, but he's sinfully underutilized. He finds a flower that makes the person he squirts it at fall in love magically with the first person they see. This movie helped me to sorta get a picture of what Mid Summer whatever is about. He keeps using him. Were the World Mine is a charming picture with a very simple message: be who you are, let others be who they are, and we can all be happy. The choreography was very nice, but I there were scenes where I thought "Ouch. It suffers a little from being a smidge too theatrical without the lighting budget to support it; and the singing isn't magnificent - but all in all, a courageous effort from Tom Gustafson to tackle quite a tough project. Damn, I wanted to love this movie and I did. The madness affects many more, of course, exactly as in Shakespeare's play, and using large extracts of dialogue from the play.

While much of the film's success must be attributed to Gustafson and co-writer Cory James Krueckelberg, one cannot underestimate the exceptional cast. I'm not surprised that it keeps winning audience awards at festivals; people are grateful when a movie sweeps them up into its own world. Wendy Robie is a total delight as the free spirited teacher who proves to be anything but a pushover. He is alternately adorable, mischievous and heart-breaking making Timothy a character that one does not feel the least bit guilty of becoming completely invested in emotionally. Despite a great deal of male-to-male affection (bare-chested hugging, kissing, and cuddling), "Were the World Mine" is overloaded with bigots.

External Reviews The film grew from the director's short film "Fairies" (which was also memorable) and I dare say that the music and lyrics, and certainly the lead performers, deserve to have him tighten it up a bit, somehow get lots more money, and carry this forward to a remake a la Baz Luhrmann ("Moulin Rouge") or Julie Taymor ("Across the Universe").

It's never going to be easy for a gay-theme movie to find popularity in main-stream cinema and even more so when things are done on a tight budget, but Were The World has done just that ! After he reluctantly restores the town's free will, he is amazed with the surprising results. That homosexuality is a wrong which needs to be made right?

It's based on a short film called "Fairies" by Tom Gustafson, and starring some of the same actors. This film brings out the Libran in me, because there are many great elements and quite a few bad ones too. Anyone who has read the play will appreciate that "Puck" is one of the best comic characters in English literature, and Cohen does a better than decent job at marrying the frustrations and naughtiness of the fairy into a 21st century environment. I've watched this movie multiple times and I never grow tired of it! Director Thomas Gustafson skilfully develops believable characters, manages complicated plot twists, and never loses the thread of "what if" that is essential to a retelling of Shakespeare's timeless story.

This 'fantasy' for open-minded audiences doesn't really have a happy ending at all...in fact, this is the least progressive gay-themed film in a good while. Long story short, the main character finds a recipe for this magic love flower from the actual play, somehow makes it, and then uses it as a revenge tool for a town that has bullied him for being gay for forever (incidentally, or maybe on purpose, literally every relationship he makes with this magic lover flower ends up gay). Usually I resent anything that stereotypes homosexuals.

Once you get passed that suspension of disbelief, concept wise I loved it. I watched Were The World Mine this afternoon on DVD and was completely under the spell ! A feel good fantasy with some nice vocals, especially from Tanner Cohen. I found myself wishing and hoping that everything would work out even though i knew it probably would, and when it did, I thought it was the perfect way to end it with the two of them ending up together (Seeing Jonathan kiss him and the look on Timothy's face, Aww!!). I think some positive feedback for that 24 minute movie, encouraged Gustafson & Co. to go back and expand it to a full-length production.

Wendy Robie is also good as the drama teacher with a little extra bit of magic to her. But I wouldn't want to give the full impression that this is a full musical-rather it's a superbly realised coming-of age story that takes overfamiliarity and swerves it off into areas that touch on whimsical, tender, tough and perhaps a little fantastcial, but always sprinkled generously with humour and spirit, with the underlying plea for a little more open-mindedness.
