The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved, tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical.
See it if You liked Hamill's Sense & Sensibility and you don't mind skipping the 2nd act. You like scripts where actors play more than one character.
Don't see it if You don't want to sit through a boring 2nd act with an insipid ending.
See it if you're intrigued by the character of Mary and want to see her take some of the spotlight
Don't see it if you have low tolerance for slapstick solely for the sake of slapstick
See it if You like Hamill's prior works. It's in many ways funny and creative.
Don't see it if You like Hamill's prior works. It's by far the least polished all. 2h40m was 30m too long. Buffoonish humor was too exagerated
See it if You'd like to see a farcical take on Pride & Prejudice and enjoy over the top physical comedy.
Don't see it if I was a fan of Hamil's other works. This to me was a miss. The story drag's on thanks to comic bits that are overdone & at time obnoxious.
See it if You can put aside the memory of having seen Sense and Sensibility by the same playwright.
Don't see it if You are a serious fan of Jane Austen’s work and the idea of it being turned upside down and exaggerated will upset you. This take is farce !
See it if You might enjoy watching a novel rendition of a classic story.
Don't see it if You are easily confused by multiple parts being played by a few actors or are looking for a more polished play.
See it if You are not an Austen purist and don’t mind taking the piss out of a beloved story.
Don't see it if You don’t like watching people being amused with themselves or dislike overindulgent schtick and direction that muddies the story.
