I love this video more than words can begin to express. (Even if they've included the version of P&P I reallyreally cannot stand. OH WELL. There's enough there to make up for it.)

Possibly I have watched it more than once already.  Possibly for something that happens somewhere around 3:40.  Possibly.

Earl Gray tea and THIS.  Best way to start a busy day.

I have lost count how many times I've watched this. Truth.

...I may have had this video in mind during my riding lesson.

I may have had one of my best riding lessons ever today.

So what you're saying is that I should be thinking about Mr. Darcy during my next fencing lesson.

...on the other hand, that sounds like a recipe for getting stabbed whilst distracted. :D :D :D

Possibly thinking about Mr. Darcy while wielding a sharp and pointy object is... not the wisest course of action ever, no. ;)

Alan Rickman, Matthew MacFadyen, Colin Firth, Simon Woods?

You know what I can't help thinking? "This song would get someone burned at the stake in 1536." Mother Nature took over heaven. This song has so much frustration.

Well think about it: "She's a single woman too." And it's not just raining men; it's raining perfect men "so each and every woman can find the perfect guy." Whoever wrote this was sick to death of fishing through losers.

What I always sort of wonder is how this saves me any trouble at all, since now I've twice the number of men to sort through. Unless the falling ones come addressed. (And how do I tell the perfect ones from the faulty ones? The bruises?)

Well I assume that's why the narrator exhorts us to be out there at half past ten so that we can see them fall.

The videographer had to use that adaptation of P&P. It's so soggy it's practically a Bronte novel.

I know, I know; it's appropriate to the song. But I can't help but feel that that Darcy always looks clueless and unkempt. And if there are two things Fitzwilliam Darcy SHOULD NEVER BE, it's clueless and unkempt.

Not too fond of Keira Knightley's Lizzie, either. Jennifer Ehle acts circles around her.

Yeah, that Darcy always looks more sheepish than haughty to me. He reminds me of a character -- whose name I can't remember, damn it -- who's constantly apologizing. (Not Bingley; Bingley's too much of a puppy.) But I always sort of want to cuddle him and tell him it's all right, and no, that's not Fitzwilliam Darcy at all.

The thing that annoys me about Keira's Lizzie is that she always seems very self-conscious of being witty and bright-eyed. Some of the stuff she does simply screams, "DO YOU SEE HOW WITTY SHE IS? AND HOW FINE HER EYES? THIS IS BECAUSE SHE IS ELIZABETH BENNETT." Which is funny, because in Pirates, she pulls off self-assured and quick-minded without beating me half to death with it. So it might be the director. I'm not sure.

(Fun fact: the British movie reviewer I like used to call her Ikea Knightley.)

....You aren't thinking of Edward from Sense and Sensibility, are you? That's the only character I'm coming up with at the moment.

But yeah, he doesn't pull off the proud-and-haughty like Colin Firth does, and his hair always looks in need of a trim (as opposed to Bingley's, which looks like he discovered mousse a couple hundred years too early -- and that's hilarious, given how flat the women's hair is, but there's Bingley, looking like a gorram Herbal Essences commercial).


YES. This is exactly what bugs me about it. And she spends so much of the movie looking stunned and doe-eyed, and that is just absolutely NOT Lizzie. Just.... no.

I've got it! I'm re-reading P&P right now and it's Mister Collins who does the constant apologizing (to hilarious effect).

And, oh, the urge to slap Lydia never abates. Ever.

Also, I kept thinking of adaptations that weren't used in this movie and being sad. Like the Persuasion with Ciaran Hinds or the Mansfield Park with Jonny Lee Miller.

I'm a little bummed we don't see any Hugh Grant, considering she used the 1995 (???) Sense and Sensibility.

This reminds me, have you ever read "Sorcery & Cecelia Or The Enchanted Chocoloat Pot" By Wrede & Stevermer?

I've seen none of these and I feel like an uneducated country bumpkin.


But holy God there were some hotties...

WHY is Alan Rickman so HOT!? He's freaking SNAPE for crying out loud. I should be repulsed and yet not. This is so not fair.

Y-y-you haven't seen the BBC Pride and Prejudice? With the hotness that is Colin Firth?!

Oh. You should DO that ;)

(And Alan Rickman is totally hot, Snape or not. Mmmm.)

Dude, the BBC Pride and Prejudice is long, but SO worth a watch.

So very. Very. Very worth it. Guh.

I actually like that version of Pride and Prejudice. ~dodges tomatoes~ It was the very first one I ever saw and I only got to see the BBC version half-way through!

I adore that version of Sense and Sensibility too. The video is awesome.
