Don't they teach history at Yale these days?

The Yale Daily News reviews BRIDE AND PREJUDICE:

Beware literati of Yale: “Bride and Prejudice” is not a visionary reworking of Jane Austen’s masterpiece. Other than the fact that one of the characters happens to be named Darcy — and that love and marriage make guest appearances — this Bollywood comedy bears no resemblance to the 1813 Victorian novel.

QUEEN VICTORIA WASN’T EVEN BORN YET IN 1813!!!! ARRRRRGH!!!!

Besides, which movie did they see that “bears no resemblance” to the novel?

The Ivy Leaguers a little to the north do better, placing the novel in the 18th century. Well, that’s when Jane wrote it, so Professor Mags will give them credit for that one.
