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 can enjoy an irreverent treatment of P & P. It's very theatrical and playful. The actors have a blast and it's infectious.
Don't see it if the adaptation misportrays Elizabeth Bennet's character - she's fairly neurotic and petulant here. Not as frothy as their Sense and Sensibi

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 Over-the-top comedic farce, with the original satire & language blended in. Astonishingly creative writing and performance. Blissful mayhem.
Don't see it if You don’t like ridiculous. At one point, the woman next to me who had been laughing throughout act 2, blurted aloud, “What the f*** is this?

Don't see it if If you’re looking for a straight dramatization of thr book, this ain’t it.
See it if ...you are not a real Janeite. Her cleverness has become strident farce. But it is entertaining and some of the bits are hysterical in a...
Don't see it if ...slapstick manner. It just hurt my sensibility to hear so much shrieking and to see such flattening of the characters.
See it if a Jane Austen fan with a mind open to seeing this 1813 classic reinvigorated with modern sensibilities, yet with its heart and soul in tact.
Don't see it if you need historical accuracy, elaborate sets & costumes, and less slapstick humor; get confused by actors in multiple roles or modern flair.
