the most fun I've had in a while
20 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bride & Prejudice was a terrific movie! I loved every minute of it! The movie contained all of the right elements: romance, comedy, musical, even adventure! I must admit for those who enjoy sad and depressing movies, this isn't one of them. I left the theater hoping to find a Will Darcy and ready to burst out into song and dance! I was throughly entertained and anyone with a heart would be too!

I found that this movie is desirable for men and women. The young and old. Americans and Indians. This well rounded movie is enjoyable for all.

Plus I believe that this was much better than Bend it Like Beckham. I liked that as well, but it had its dull moments where I wanted to get and go for a jog! This kept me interested throughout the whole movie, plus the music was outstanding. I wanted to jump up from my seat and dance. My feet bounced and my hips shook from beginning to end!
