5.0 out of 5 stars funny!, 21 Jan. 2009
An unrecognizable Depp plays the infamous 'Cry Baby'. A must see, full of hilarious acting, lines, music, and stereo-types.. I got it last week, and have watched it atleast three times.. amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars As engaging as the novel!, 8 Jan. 2009
I am only 17 years old, and due to a strange inspiration from watching the most recent Pride and Prejudice film i decided to start reading the Jane Austen collection. I am reading them in order of when they were written and have just finished reading Sense and Sensibility. The novel itself, i found hard to put down at all, and for the past week i have hardly slept and have not done nearly as much homework as i should have as a result! After finishing the novel i decided to treat myself to this highly acclaimed film in which Emma Thompson captures Elinor in all her grace and humility, and Kate Winslet acts as a successful Marianne. This is a definite recommendation, for the younger generation too! I found Hugh Grant not nearly as annoying as i usually do in films, and i feel he played his role extremely well. Also the deleted scenes are pretty amazing, especially the one where Mrs. Dashwood acknowledges her neglect of Elinor's situation, as this was one of my personal favourite parts of the novel. Also watch Emma Thompson's acceptance speech as an extra, it is worth watching.
If i was to have one disappointment it would be at the particular details that have been left out from the novel, although this is always necessary in big film productions. Also i was not very convinced by the portrayal of Colonel Brandon, nor Willoughby, but this did not hinder the film much.
All in all i feel this was an almost perfect adaption, and most credit is due probably to Ang Lee, and the two main actresses.
