Rice does a fine job of juggling so many characters and moving smoothly among flashbacks without losing sight of the main story.

What it doesn't have is drama or wisdom or comedy or heat, something to temper the banalities.

Not to say it isn't an enjoyable diversion. Just that it's also a superficial one.

The glossy appearance and trappings may evoke standard Anglophile nostalgia, but below the veneer is a cynical portrait of bored, shallow Britons halfheartedly going through the motions of a celebration.

The dominance of the madcap side of the film's split personality lays an airy veneer over Dolly and Joseph's woes, making them seem inconsequential - as unsubstantial as an observation about wedding-day weather.

Without a source as rich as Jane Austen to draw on, Cheerful Weather feels incomplete, caroming off previous stories without forging its own way.

The costumes are gorgeous, and the settings are plush, but the acting is merely serviceable, and the film lacks either the wit or the energy of its predecessors.

A costumer that's well named for being pleasant and conventional but little more.

Finely crafted English period piece works best for those who like their love stories romantically doomed.
