I saw this before I read the Jilly Cooper book, so had no comparison, and I liked it very much. The plot is amusing, and sometimes highly superficial, but Stephen Billington makes a perfect Lysander, and Hugh Bonneville is delightfully cuddly as Ferdie - bless!
All in all, despite the characters being too sexy to be true this is a pleasant enough romp through the Rutshire countryside and a few hours of pure escapism.
Get the girls round, have a bottle of bubbly and a great big gateau, sit back and enjoy
