If you want a wacky multicultural pairing to make you laugh a lot and learn a little, head for the movie theater playing Bride & Prejudice.

| Original Score: 2.5/5
... a funny, festive, genre-bending adaptation of Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Frothy, feel-good fun.
Austen goes to Bollywood.
| Original Score: B
The Austen story is a true delight...
| Original Score: 4/5
Do we really need more adaptations of Pride & Prejudice?
Every so often, the unseen managers of the galaxy bestow on us mere mortals a vision of rare incongruous beauty: a solar eclipse, a streaking comet, a shooting star, Bollywood goddess Aishwarya Rai happily riding a tractor.
Or, how to use only the worst parts of three different genres.
| Original Score: 1/5
Its weakness is its bland predictability. But for the fan of Bollywood films or old-fashioned romances, its weakness may be its strength.
| Original Score: 6/10
Bride & Prejudice is like a curry milkshake or Tandoori kippers. It's a mix that some might find appetizing, but it doesn't quite come off.
| Original Score: 2/5
Rental With Snacks only because it didn't do a lot to reinvent the source material, but it does deserve to be seen in raging giant screen Technicolor.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's impossible not to be charmed by Chadha's direction and the movie's sheer invention.
Prior knowledge of Austen's plot is not essential to enjoying 'Bride,' but a willingness to roll along with Chadha's zany ideas is.
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.
| Original Score: C
Whacky Bollywood update of British author Jane Austen's caustic comedy of manners of some 200 years ago.
| Original Score: C+
The insertion of musical numbers into the plotline can be alternately charming or downright intrusive, depending on the songs' highly varying quality, as well as the dubbed voices of the performers.
As Monsoon Wedding was to Crouching Tiger, Bride and Prejudice is in a measure to, say, Rumble in the Bronx or Jackie Chan's First Strike.
| Original Score: B-
While the film is slightly flawed, it is impossible to outright dislike it.
A colorful, high-energy musical that sizzles in this East-meets-West clash of cultures.
