As far as I'm concerned, this movie gives us the perfect 'time out' from
daily grind. It's sweet, charming, and has a fine cast. Outstanding, of
course, is Colin Firth. The reviewers who claim that this movie is great
for the "under-13 and over 80" crowd just don't get it. There are many of
us who will love Mr. Darcy forever, and who are in dire need of more Colin
Firth movies. He is, of course, absolutely gorgeous in the movie, and has
lot of screen time. I would pay to watch and listen to him read a
book, so I will see this movie again and definitely will be among the
in line to buy the DVD.
It was strange to see Anna Chancellor as his fiancee, a part which she played in much the same way that she portrayed Caroline Bingley. Her character wasn't good enough for Mr. Darcy, nor is this one suited for Lord Dashwood.
Although numerous people have criticized the sweetness of the movie, I, who am hopelessly romantic, loved its ending. I left the theater feeling better than when I entered. (I felt the same way when "Bridget Jones's Diary" ended. Actually, I couldn't wait to see it again, since the final kiss was probably the best kiss I've seen in a movie. I digress. Sorry.) Although I realize that this movie isn't going to win any Academy Awards, it is still a wonderful way to spend an hour and a half.
