Another thumb up! Film is most "horrid", I promise!

...Some of my favorite discussions in the novel (such as Henry's witty comments on journals and novels) are missing, but the movie does a neat, campy job of capturing Catherine's gothic fantasy life.
I liked it a lot. And as far as Henry's witty comments, there are some good ones in the unedited "for sale" version. Did you see that one Michelle? The part about "gentlemen read better books" is in there right before the scene where he talks about ignorance being "a great enhancement" to females.
So, what I guess I'm saying is that it's a fun way to spend an hour-and-a-half to two hours, but if you're expecting a P&P2-type treatment, you'll be disappointed.
I agree in general with that statement, Michelle. And as I said once before, I thought the music was saxy, and thought the part with the pageboy cartwheeling was a nice touch.
