YMMV / Pride and Prejudice (1995)

Go To

  • Adaptation Displacement: To a certain degree, especially within the fandom itself. While everyone still knows it was a book first, the miniseries is so faithful that the instances of Fanon get frequently treated like canon.
  • Dawson Casting: Noticeable with most of the Bennet sisters but particularly egregious with Julia Sawalha (Lydia), who was 27 playing a 15 year old. Not to mention being a year older than Jennifer Ehle (Elizabeth) whose character was meant to be 5 years older than Lydia.

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In The King's Speech, Ehle plays the wife of George VI's (Firth) therapist. They have one scene together, where Ehle's character's eyes bug out over seeing the royal couple in her home.
  • It Was His Sled: The BBC America trailer for the miniseries starts by showing the wedding and stating "We know how it ends..."
  • Narm: Whenever Lizzie reads letters which are spoken in voiceover, pausing for Lizzie's interjections. What with Lizzie's comments often being sarcastic or at least cynical, it all feels slightly Mystery Science Theater 3000.
