I want to see it. I'm a Jane Austen nut. I heard the real purists were upset about the last scene (supposedly a "morning after" scene) but hey, I can stand a little deviation from the book if it adds to the story. And yes, the actor who plays Mr. Darcy is definitely some eye candy.

Noriko - I've seen the new movie twice. "Pride and Prejudice" is my favorite book of all time...I've read it countless of times. I have a lot of opinions about the new movie. I think that it was great - acting, etc...however, I really recommend the more complete (and superior) A&E version that was made over 10 years ago, starring Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. Since I am a huge fan of the A&E version (it is a mini-series if you will, clocking in at over 5 hours), it was hard to watch the new movie without being biased. I think the new movie was good, considering that they had to condense a lot. If you see it, let me know what you think!

My mom and I really wanted to see it this weekend, but there was no time :sad: I doubt I'll be able to get the bf to set foot into the theatre to see it, so I'll have to drag my cousin to see it instead :toung:

Colin Firth was tremendous as Mr. Darcy in the A&E version. I am going to see it by myself this weekend, as none of my friends, and certainly not my husband, are interested in it.
