News & Interviews for Pride and Prejudice
Critic Reviews for Pride and Prejudice
Awkward comic timing and uneven performances spoil the desired effect.
Anyone familiar with the book or BBC miniseries (or over the age of 6) will not be surprised by the outcome, except for how wholly unengaging and tedious it is made here.
The movie's real discovery ... is the shimmery Heskin -- in love with the camera and the audience, and marvelously attuned to the screwball stimuli all around her.
A better way to combine the church and Jane Austen? Rent the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice and read the Book of Mormon during the slow bits.
Audience Reviews for Pride and Prejudice
As a modern-day adaption it didn't do too badly, but the main characters were the best part. I hated that they made LIzzie a klutz and Bingley an idiot, but who really cares?
Kind of like watching a music video. Cute and frothy. Attractive, though unknown, cast do a good job at distracting you from the fact there is not a whole lot happening here. I personally find Jane Austen movies quite dull, so to me, this modern version was an improvement.
They have ruined the story for me. The story does not exist accurately when the time period is changed and made modern.
