Angela always wanted me to watch this when we were younger, and I never wanted to b/c it looked boring to me. It was either this one or some other period piece. I can't remember now, but...anyways. It wasn't boring at all. Love the lines. In these movies from Jane Austen's books, you work so hard to get to that one line. They go through all this craziness about whether or not he loves her. Whether he'll marry her or not even if he does love her b/c she's poor. Then he's engaged. The whole time she's trying to be so good and realistic about it. I love at the end when she finds out he's not married, and she freaks out crying. She doesn't care to be proper any more, she's so overwhelmed. And then his lines about his heart being hers. Love it! Hugh Grant cracks me up b/c he's just so dopey looking, but you gotta love all his characters. He looks like our neighbor up the street who's so not like that, but I just can't help myself. Every time I see him I think of our neighbor.
Watch this movie ladies! You won't regret it! :o)
