I finally watched the 5 hour version of Pride and Prejudice. Here are a few thoughts on it:
Why on earth would Mr.Bennett marry someone as ridiculous as Mrs. Bennett?
This longer version is so much more drawn out. It's not a bad thing, I'm just used to the shorter version and things going so much quicker.
I think Jane is so not cute. She has no neck. And the faces she makes look idiotic.
Mr. Whickam is seriously creepy.
The mother in this one is truly truly annoying. The actress is superb.
In the newer version the Bennett family seems a lot more poor.
I officially fell in Love with this Mr. Darcy after the swimming scene.
I fell in love with Mr. Darcy in the new one as soon as I laid eyes on him.....mmmmm Matthew McFayden.
I am glad I watched this old one but will always love the newer one more.
