- Tip: Navigate with your left and right arrow keys1If I was being a stickler, I’d say that this would have to be the new Pride and Prejudice—you know, the Oscar nominated one starring Kiera Knightley and featuring nifty direction by Joe Wright. But, in reality, it just doesn’t matter. Heck, as long as Jane Austen is involved you could watch two and half hours of sock puppets making out and still get lucky. You see, Jane Austen is like a pheromone for women. By merely mentioning her name their eyes begin to glaze over and they lose an attachment to reality. Suddenly, everyone becomes Mr. Darcy. Everyone wears those ruffled dresses with the hoops in them. And, of course, everyone has a British accent.
To increase your chances, during the elaborate dance sequence in the first third of the movie, make an off-hand, yet appropriate, comment about how you wish everyone still danced like that and how "classic" it would be. Regardless of whether you believe this or not, it makes you seem sensitive and introspective. Or, you could always go with the old stand-by and say: "you have much a bigger rack than Kiera Knightley." Granted, it ain’t Shakespeare, but by the time this flick comes to an end, every word you say will somehow become poetry.<< PREV 1 of 5 NEXT >>
