the best

No need to watch any other adaptations- this one is the best! It's humorous and fits the book well.

Great movie

Great acting in this version of Pride and Prejudice. Gotta love Colin Firth. Crispin Bonham Carter really nails the character of Bingley. He is just as I imagined him in the book.

Love it

This is may favorite version of this movie and I own several versions. At least twice a year I need to watch this. BBC just does Jane Austen the best. The charaters are perfect, the costumes , the sets are just great.

Best version

This is the quintessential movie version of the book. Excellent!

Excellent version

This version of Pride and Prejudice is one of the absolute best. I like it better than the 2005 film version, and that's a decent version. At first Colin Firth doesn't look like the Mr. Darcy as described in the book, but give it time. His acting takes over and he absolutely shines as Darcy. The other actors do well also. Elizabeth is excellent, Mr. and Mrs. Bennett could not be much better. Jane should be prettier and Charlotte not as pretty, but both act their parts very well. Lydia seems even more wild than than my reading of the book, but that's fine.

It is faithful to the book and sure to delight anyone who loves P&P. If you haven't read it yet, by all means, be introduced to Jane Austen's comedy of class and manners in Regency England through this adaptation.

!!

this is definitely the best version--cute guy, great acting, faithful adaption of the story...i love it!!!!!

Highly Recommended

I agree with other reviewers that this is the best adaptation of the book. I enjoyed the newer feature film, but still liked this better.

Excellent Adaptation

This is my ideal adaptation of Jane Austen's excellent novel "Pride and Prejudice." Each of the actors is an excellent embodiment of their character, and highlights their characters' predominant traits beautifully. Mrs. Bennett is as hysterical and scheming as could be, Jane as steady as a plow horse, Lydia as flighty and trampy as possible in her time period, Lady Catherine de Burgh overbearing, Mr. Collins obsequious, Bingley as good-natured, Darcy as remote and abrupt and darling Elizabeth as witty and sharp as Austen made her.

The settings are lovely and every performer talented and well-used. I can watch this version of the book again and again and enjoy the details anew each time. For instance, when Mr. Collins and Lydia run into each other in the stairwell, she in a state of undress. It cracks me up every time, and I've seen it at least 15 times.

Best Version

This version is the best version by far
