I had to laugh silently.
The handsome Mr Collins theme is not new at all, but I certainly appreciate the hilarity of this version.
Mr Collins is a head turner, perfect handsome dreamboat.. but still as silly and lacking in the brain and sensitivity department , if not worse, but people tend to overlook that due to his extraordinary good looks. Mrs Bennet is rendered silent. Lydia swoons. He is a veritable Greek God.Thus he is a very vain creature who only talks about himself when he spews the usual verbal diarrhea and the contents are not pretty.
He is now the condescending parson in this that is he actually expects it.(go figure), which is quite the opposite of the version of Collins that worships the condescension of Lady Catherine . here Lady Catherine and others all fall under his spell. Pffft! Anne fights with her mother for him.
I find this exceedingly funny. Hot Collins happened to prefer rotund woman, aka Charlotte in this case. Yes, it's silly. Don't expect anything serious, except Darcy and Elizabeth.
The Bennet ladies were all smitten at first till he got carried away with an over abundance of self laudatory conversation, being a narcissistic person.
(Is he the guy in the middle of the book cover or is that Mr Darcy? )
Anyway, I loved the way everything seemed to be arse backwards . All heads turn when they see him. It figures a shallow man like him would become conceited, having nothing else to recommend him.
I don't see that happening with Mr Darcy's character, ever. He has much more depth. His attention to duty and inability to converse with ease with women in crowds work against him. His wealth does paint a target sign on his back No wonder he is the way he is. He is just as handsome but quite unaware of that.
Those other pictures of three men are ugh, compared to whoever is front and center.
I think the 1995 BBC P&P had better looking characters. Mr. Bingley was played by very sweet, good looking young man. Colin Firth was all right as Darcy but 1would have fit his age better if it were his Valmont period. Same with Jennifer Ehle. Adrian Lukis who played Wickham was the smarmiest Wickham ever and hard to forget. How anyone could believe his tales of woe upon meeting him is hard to swallow. I would be running the other way. Creeped me out, he did. Handsome? Ech no, oily yes.
Well that was very entertaining. Looks can get a person so far, but personality, consideration of others and intelligence will prevail in the end.
Imagine a fat, balding, older Mr Collins later, jowly and not so Greek God like with no likeable traits. Then what? I find it hard to believe he loves anyone else other than himself.
There were fun scenes when Darcy and Elizabeth had the misfortune of witnessing in the bushes and trees.
Read this!. I highly recommend it for readers tired of slogging through chapters of angst.
Good writing style! Better than the writers the authors listed at the end. I have read their work as well.
Even though this was a comedy, I appreciated that most of the characters personalities were recognizable. Some were exaggerated for effect. It worked well for this approach and was not over done as I've seen in some serious attempts of P&P variations. I really liked Elizabeth and Darcy throughout. Many of the misunderstandings and prejudices were still presented and dealt with.
I really enjoyed this story. It was fun, light and a little naughty! Kept my attention.
Going into this story you have to be able to take it with a grain of salt. Come on… it is a farce, it is ridiculous and it is hilarious in places. My goodness… all the handsome men running around Hertfordshire [Darcy, Bingley, Collins and Wickham] and all the ladies with their tongues hanging out. Yep, this was simply a funny, clean [except for the lustful glances], hilarious way to spend a few hours. Surprisingly, it is a quick read.

OK, Mr. Collins is so full of himself that you want to thrash him about the head with his own tongue. However, it would be a shame to mar that beautiful face. He was so full of himself, I bet he blows kisses at himself when he passes a mirror… if he is able to walk away. It reminds me of Sir Walter [Persuasion] and all his mirrors. Collins’ every thought is for his patroness first, then his own beauty and consequence, followed by the fact that he knows every woman and man admires him. The fact Lydia swooned into a dead faint… augmented that burgeoning ego of his. Lawd!
“I’m handsome, no ands, buts or ifs.” Colin Mochrie
There are so many scenes where you want to cringe with Elizabeth over her family being so ridiculous. Poor Darcy and Bingley had front row seats for the ‘Bennet Show’ as the family attempted to outdo each other. Poor Jane and Elizabeth were caught in the middle.
The romantic angst was lessened because our dear couple [ODC] were better able to understand each other. At first, they were at odds, but soon were able to decipher the meaning behind those looks and stares. Their misunderstanding gave over to affection and then moved on to more. How sweet. I loved their arguments… em… conversations.
I don’t want to give any spoilers; however, the ending was so shocking… I certainly did not see that coming. That has to be an interesting setup.

Once I figured out that what I was Read was supposed to be funny, then it all made sense...and it was indeed humorous.
