Hugely Over-rated, 14 Mar 2006
Don't listen to all the hype, this film is dreadful! Take the casting. Emma T. is far too old for the part and the coupling with Hugh Grant as E Ferrars is just too improbable. Next, A Rickman has an excellent talent for under-the-surface deviousness, but not as a soppy old colonel besotted with a teenage twit. And the much-touted director Ang Lee? This film would be an embarrassment to a First Year Film Studies student.
Save your money on this DVD; if its Jane Austen your after, buy the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice.
