Critic Reviews for Pride and Prejudice
This movie was stuffy, boring, cumbersome and all around annoying to me.
oe Wright should be applauded for delivering a vividly realised Austen adap -- one which confirms Knightley has graduated from the Jackie Bisset of the '00s to this decade's Julie Christie.
OMG I loved this movie so much that I have to turn in my Manly Man Club ID card now.
Director Joe Wright's filmic rendition of Jane Austin's classic novel is sumptuous but never fussy.
Audience Reviews for Pride and Prejudice
A very good movie. I will get ridiculed by my friends but this was well worth the time i spent watching it
Decent, but really not my type of movie. I would totally hate to live in that era, I can't believe women go all silly over it. I just felt cross the whole time watching the women married off and treated like cattle. Not my idea of a romantic film!
As to the cast, the highlight here is Keira. She is fantastic as Lizzie. The actor playing Darcy, I agree with a previous reviewer - he looks constipated.
Carey Milligan doesn't have a lot to do here but giggle. Jenna Malone I couldn't even recognize. The parents I found tiresome.
The movie itself looks great and there are some nice shots here.
I am very mixed on this movie. I didn't like the message a whole lot - particularly the 15 year old sister. However, I realize different times. At least Lizzie was a little older and spirited. I guess I am still thinking about it a day later, so it must work in some level...
This film really took me by surprise, not by how good it was, but by how much I liked it. This excellent film completely took me in and I absolutely loved it.
There's really not much to say about this one. The story is great, and brilliantly adapted from the famous Jane Austen novel. The cinematography is excellent, as are the props, costumes, etc...you are truly transported into the era. The music is good; the writing is good; the cast is good...everything about this film is good.
Special mention must go to Keira Knightley Oscar nominated performance. It really was that good! She's an actress that I highly respect and enjoy despite the skeptics that accuse her of not being that great of an actress. But her performance here is proof of her talents. I loved her in this film!
Pride & Prejudice is an excellent film! A must see!
Pride and Prejudice Quotes
|Elizabeth Bennet:||I wonder who first discovered the power of poetry in driving away love.|
|Mr. Darcy:||I thought poetry was the food of love.|
|Elizabeth Bennet:||Of a fine, stout love it may. But if it is only a vague inclination I'm convinced one poor sonnet would kill it stone dead.|
|Mr. Darcy:||So what do you recommend, to encourage affection?|
|Elizabeth Bennet:||Dancing. Even if one's partner is barely tolerable.|
|Charlotte Lucas:||Not all of us can afford to be romantic.|
|Mr. Darcy:||You have bewitched me in body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you.|
|Elizabeth Bennet:||From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others, made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.|
