Pride and Predjudice (Movie) Austen Challenge – “Tastes Like Chicken”

I know that is a strange header for this review – but I find it appropriate.  You know how when peoplepride try to get you eat something new they say “it tastes like chicken?”

Well… I really like chicken.  Pride and Prejudice was trying something new.  I liked it very much.

I watched this movie as part of the Austen Challenge put on by Stephanie’s Written Word. Up to this point, I have not read or watched anything Jane Austen.  Even to me that seems odd as a reader for as long as I could well… read.  It’s not that I haven’t wanted to – I have Emma, and Pride and Prejudice on my book shelf.  It just seems that there is always something new and exciting to read and I guess I just never made it to them.  The Challenge for me is a good thing.

The movie was good and made me reach fpr the book off my shelf.  Maybe now it is time to dig into a little Austen…

  1. I love the title of this post. How creative. :))

    I just read P&P this year and absolutely loved it. (I have not seen the movie so have nothing to compare it to; however, perhaps I’ll watch it for the challenge).

    P&P is like a warm blanket on a cold day.

    Cheers and happy Sunday!

  2. So glad you took the plunge and watched P&P! I started on the movie versions of most of her books and have now begun reading them (with P&P being my first Austen book just last year)!

  3. You’re in for a real treat now! Austen’s books are lovely, and there have been lots of wonderful film adaptations of her work.

  4. OH, excellent! So glad you enjoyed this film… If you’re ever up for the longer adaptation (w/Colin Firth), you might find it interesting to compare the two :-). There are elements I love about both…
    Hope you have a wonderful day!!

  5. I absolutely love this film. It is by far one of my favorites and is one I watch again and again. I really enjoy the Colin Firth BBC version of Pride and Prejudice too, but this one has grown to be my favorite. Such a beautiful film, so romantic, and a great movie to watch on a rainy day.

  6. I love that movie! Just know going into the book that that scene in the field at the end? It’s not in the book. I like the ending of the book but it’s just not as romantic.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
