I read Jane Austen's book Pride and Prejudice when I was a teenager, and thouroughly enjoyed it.
Since then, I have watched these adaptations of it:
This last one was just a cheap-production modern-day chick flick...my sisters all thought it terribly funny and enjoyable, but I didn't get quite as much amusement out of it as they did.
A few days ago, my sister Holly told me that the 2005 version was out on dvd. So last night I set out to rent it. I went to two video rental stores, with no luck. It seems as though everyone else wanted to rent it too! I called another store, rather than wasting a trip out there, and they didn't have it in stock either. So Kevin and I went to Meijer and we bought it, with the plan to sell it on e-bay.
So last night I watched this version:
I have to say that of all the versions I have seen, the 1995 version (second picture down) is my favorite! That's not to say that I didn't enjoy last night's viewing. This movie was not quite as long as the others, so they didn't have as much time to develop the characters. I do believe they stayed true to the book though. All in all, it was an enjoyable movie!
