* ObviousJudas: Even if you have zero prior knowledge of the book or its adaptations, the revelation that [[spoiler: Wickham]] is evil should come as no surprise, what with him showing up unexpectedly at night, being palsy with the zombies, and [[SmugSmiler smirking]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking all the time]].

** Lizzie turning down Darcy's proposal - is turned into a kung fu fight between them. Must be seen to be believed.

--> "Be careful of your talent for the delicate compliments, sir."

* LoveToHate: Matt Smith's pompous and arrogant take on Mr Collins...sorry [[InsistentTerminology Pastor]] Collins. He's a complete twat and yet he's the most entertaining character in the movie.
* NarmCharm: It features [[ProperLady Proper Ladies]] of Regency England going around fighting zombies, all the while talking about Shaolin Training in flowery old fashioned langugage. And yet every one of the actors is clearly committing to the material to make it ''work''.

And yet every one of the actors is clearly committing to the material to make it ''work''. According to Lily James, this was invoked by the director. He told them to play their scenes as seriously as possible, and the humour would come from that rather than a "wink to the audience".

* BoxOfficeBomb: The film was expected to gross $10-15 million in its opening weekend (against a budget of $28 million). It grossed $15.4 million ''worldwide'' in a little less than a month. Possible factors include tough competition from movies like ''Film/HailCaesar'', ''Film/KungFuPanda3'', and ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'', and its premier happening in [[DumpMonths February]].



** Creator/LilyJames as Lizzie was well-liked by just about everyone who saw the film, including Jeremy Jahns.

** Matt Smith as Mr Collins is a highly praised part, stealing every scene he's in.
** Likewise Lady Catherine because she's played by Lena Headey, is famed for zombie killing and has an eyepatch.

* CriticalDissonance: Critics don't seem to have responded well to the film, but audience reactions are more favourable.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Matt Smith as Mr Collins is a highly praised part, stealing every scene he's in.
** Likewise Lady Catherine because she's played by Lena Headey, is famed for zombie killing and has an eyepatch.
* EstrogenBrigade: Both Mr Bingley and Mr Wickham have a considerable female following.
* FanPreferredCouple: Lizzie and Collins have some traction now, especially since their actors were dating. There appears to be more BelligerentSexualTension here than in other versions, due to the chemistry between them.
* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Mrs Bennet asking if Lady Catherine's eyepatch is "fashion or function", and Lady Catherine replies "function" immediately.
* HilariousInHindsight: Lizzie repeatedly rebuffing Mr Collins becomes even more hilarious with the knowledge that their actors were dating at the time.
* HollywoodHomely: Charlotte here is considerably cuter than her novel counterpart, who is meant to be plain. Although nobody comments on her attractiveness, she still accepts Collins's proposal because she feels she has no better prospects.
* LoveToHate: Matt Smith's pompous and arrogant take on Mr Collins...sorry [[InsistentTerminology Pastor]] Collins. He's a complete twat and yet he's the most entertaining character in the movie.
