*** Amazon's variant is better still. "Jane Austen is the author of Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and other masterpieces of English literature. Seth Grahame-Smith is the author of How to Survive a Horror Movie and The Big Book of Porn."

* JustHereForGodzilla - From the back cover: "''Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'' transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you'd actually want to read."

* MagnificentBastard - Lady Catherine in ''Dreadfully Ever After''. Within days of being informed of the situation with Darcy, she's whipped up an elaborate scheme to get him back to the match she wanted with her daughter, and has all the Bennetts dancing on strings thanks to holding the only hope of saving him.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap - As in the original, Kitty and Lydia spend the first two books as clones of their mother, completely shallow and concerned with nothing but nabbing a rich husband. But by ''Dreadfully Ever After'', Kitty has matured considerably, ashamed of her previous behavior and determined to help her family any way she can.
* SoOkayItsAverage - In the minds of some people.
* {{Squick}} - Every scene featuring [[spoiler:Charlotte after she is infected]].
* TearJerker - Elizabeth discovers a [[UndeadChild little boy zombie]] chained up in a bedroom and thinks it's some kind of sick joke until she realizes that his mother ''still loves him'' and keeps him around because he's all she has left. The scene is so pathetic that Elizabeth spares the boy and leaves the place in tears.

* 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]].

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]].
