Review of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE DVD

Standard

A review of the DVD of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE — the recent modern-set version, of course, which was released yesterday on DVD and VHS — from the Salt Lake Tribune.

But his movie is prejudiced by slack storytelling, ludicrous plot coincidences and one-note characters whose only aim in life seems to be to get hitched. The film unfolds in some sort of bizarre, Archie-comics reality where grad students never drink, smoke, swear or have sex and adults barely exist.

We wonder how it is possible that a reviewer in Salt Lake City doesn’t quite understand the milieu in which the film is set.
