After seeing this film, I came to the conclusion that if they had taken
the same cast, sets, costumes etc, but instead of making Pride and
Prejudice they had made Wuthering Heights, it would have been
As it was, in my opinion Colin Firth has nothing to worry about, his well-deserved reputation as THE Mr Darcy isn't under any threat.
The précis of the story was very well done considering there is an awful lot of content to get into 2 hours of film, but at the cost of much of the characterisation, comedy and humour.

I'm very happy to help this film out with its progress up the IMDB list of worst films of all time. 1/10.
This film is terrifying, certainly the most frightening thing I have ever seen. I left feeling exhausted and shaky, and couldn't sleep that night. It left me hugely scared of innocuous household objects and a week later I was watching my clock... Brilliant.
