• People who are a bit fed up with the preaching, televangelist religious right in the USA
• People with lots of skeletons in their closet and don't mind adding a few more by putting "have seen Hamlet 2" on their list of transgressions against humanity
• People who have fantasized for 30 years about seeing Elizabeth Shue in a nurse's outfit
• People who are going to be ok when they find out that Hamlet 2 isn't really a sequel to "Hamlet"

• People who don't get lost in a play within a play

• Fans of Catherine Keener
• Fans hoping this will revitalize Elizabeth Shue's career like Being John Malkovich revived the career of John Malkovich.
• People who are never, ever, not even after until Hell freezes over, going to think there is anything funny and not sinful about a song called "Rock Me Sexy Jesus"…and especially people who think this way and don't want to have the blasted song stuck in their heads for the next 3 straight days
• People who feel adultery is too sinful to sit through
• People who don't want to forgive and forget their past
• People who aren't looking for a little let alone a lot of catharsis in their lives
• People easily offended or ones who don't buy the commonly utilized "it's not offensive if you offend everyone" excuse for offensiveness
• Fans who are hoping to hear David Arquette do his thing and / or people who have recently brought in a handsome, younger boarder to offset the high cost of rent and have been leaving him at home alone for hours on end with their lonely, gravid spouse
• People who don't get any of the following SAT terms: satire, irony, or parody or that know them but don't want to see a movie that uses almost nothing else
• People who really do want to see a sequel to "Hamlet"
