Chadha's attempt to mix East and West just doesn't work.

Gurinder Chadha's film, which transports Jane Austen's 1813 novel to 21st-century India, is as high concept and rife with cliche as anything ever churned out by Hollywood.

I assume director Chadha was hoping to achieve the ultimate East meets West musical comedy, but in almost every way imaginable, she has failed in her mission.

It feels as utterly clueless as the American tourist whose vulgar behavior pushes everyone away.

If you're a fan [of Bollywood movies], by all means, go and see it. If you are not, then be aware.

It's got moments, it's got performances to recommend, but they still haven't figured out how to create the magic of Bollywood in a form for the US market.

Whacky Bollywood update of British author Jane Austen's caustic comedy of manners of some 200 years ago.

Its weakness is its bland predictability. But for the fan of Bollywood films or old-fashioned romances, its weakness may be its strength.

Chadha proves that Austen's material is timeless, but not tireless.

In attempting to show us a love blind to class, culture, and color, [Chadha has] also made it bland.

It's part sitcom, part musical comedy and all extremely silly.

Director Gurinder Chadha scored a flukey hit with the singularly annoying Bend It Like Beckham. Bride And Prejudice is louder, broader and even more crass.

There's much to like about Bride & Prejudice...but the end result looks and feels like a cut-rate version of the Bollywood and Hollywood sensibilities.
