Hello all http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I just saw this movie again for the third time. Everytime I see it I love it even more. I can't wait for the sequel. This is one of those rare movies that sticks quite well to the book.

Of anyone has yet to see it please do. You will laugh yourself to death. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Hi Isabella,

It's a good movie. Have you noticed the similarity between BJD and Pride and Prejudice?

Colin Firth plays the same role in each!

Yes I have this movie, it's great.

If you have not read the books you should read them, they're most excellent! :D

Hehe I thought so too John, Mr Darcy in both!!! :D

Exactly so - two fees for one bit of work! :D

But was there any reference or acknowledgement of Jane Austen in BJD. I don't recall any.

It's like that film 'Clueless' with Alicia Silversone. It was clearly based on 'Emma', but I could see no acknowledgement in the credits to J.A. :(

PLease someone tell me. Why are people talking about Jane Austin? Is BJD somehow related to her work? To me it might just give me the ZZzs although I liked Sense and Sensibility (both movie and book)

There are strong similarities in the plot and charecters (and the development of their relationships) in both BJD and P and P. One clue is that the main, male, character in each has the surname Darcy. The actor, Colin Firth, played Mr. Darcy in BJD and in the latest (1995) BBC adaption of P&P.

Hope this clarifies!

Now that you mention it, Yes there are some definate similarities. But perhaps not enough that would merit some acknowledgement at the end credits.

Thats not an easy thing to do.

Actually, we are not merely talking 'similarities' here. Bridget's author said that she was truly inspired by Pride and Prejudice and that both Daniel and Marc and Bridget were modelled on Jane Austen's original characters. So...there you go, all consciously done!
