Doug McGrath, 1996 (8.3*)
Gwyneth Paltrow scores again with her British accent in this Jane Austen romantic comedy, about a wealthy woman who attempts to play matchmaker for each of her single friends except herself, whether they want her help or not. This is the funniest of Austen's novels, as we get to see early sitcom at work, 1800's style. This novel was also the basis for the updated U.S. comedy Clueless, with Alicia Silvertone ("As if!"), where it was moved into a Beverly Hills high school! Here it gets the full-blown British costume treatment.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
