They have turned a classic novel into a pile of s**t with bright colors!
Why, one wonders - do I come down so hard on this film...because 'Pride & Prejudice' is a very good book and there is already a GOOD TV version of it!: The BBC Pride & Prejudice is a mini-series made in 1995 and very recommendable. It's a series with very good actors - Colin Firth, Jennifer Ehle and Julia Sawalha to mention a few -unlike this piece s**t!!
This movie is supposedly based on the novel... However, it's only resemblance is its consistent quoting of the book as well as the overall story with Eliza and Darcy. The problem is: it doesn't work!
One cannot simply take this book, written over 200 years ago and put it into today's history - things has changed... The young sister eloping - with the focus on marriage at the ripe age of what 18?? - and a man finding it beneath him to marry a 'commoner'.. It's ridiculous and seems unrealistic.
Furthermore the acting is bad but that could also be due to the poorly written script of the film... All those scenes they took from the BBC adoption - yes you could say that 'it was also in the book' - but I will still say that it looked too much like the BBC version which is set in that period of time where such a behavior was seen as customary. That is why it is so much better - it worked!
The next Pride and Prejudice - release date: 2005 - was a lot better! Itt's adapted as a movie, telling the story in its period with the right elements from the book - not comparable with this atrocity of a film!
