Everyone’s second choice for Bad Movie Night was Pride & Prejudice and Zombies.
Don’t tell anyone, but I’m as big a Jane Austin fan as the next guy. Okay, I’m probably a little bigger Jane Austin fan than the next guy. I think all of us agreed that if you haven’t seen Pride and Prejudice, you shouldn’t see this movie. And if you don’t particularly like Pride and Prejudice, you’d better be (a) a big fan of zombies and (b) fairly open minded about your zombies.
I actually really enjoyed it. It was amazing to me how closely all of the major plot elements of Pride & Prejudice were incorporated. I don’t know if I was more impressed when the dialog was exactly the same or when it was changed cleverly to reflect the, um, new circumstances.
Samith was surprised at how long the movie was. Curt, who had no prior Pride and Prejudice experience, thought it was a very bad movie indeed.
