I would dance with both your sisters at once it..." before Lydia and Kitty drag both men to the dance floor. See more »

duck impersonating a swan
3 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

This sequel to "Pride and Prejudice" is of the same caliber as the one that tried to follow up on "Gone With The Wind".

How did Lizzy become so ugly and so old? When did she lose all her charm? And there was absolutely no chemistry whatsoever between her and dear Darcy. It seemed they could hardly look at each other. What happened to that wonderful special love they had in the original?

If Darcy is so rich, why Lizzy and Georgiana only had 1 cheap dress each? Both girls wore the same frumpy dress every day for weeks on end. In fact, everyone in the show only had one outfit for the entire show. Even though aristocrats in that era strove to look sharp and spiffy, yet, the overcoats of all the men in this show were all crumpled. It made the whole show looked like a low budget production.

Of course, it had to be a "murder mystery" instead of a romance because murder is the vogue right now. What's next? Murder in Emma and Knightly's home?

Poor Jane Austen! She must be turning over in her grave!
