Amy (amy_lofgreen) Well, I am sure we all agree that Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennett were severely censured in this attempt at P&P, but the ONE thing they did get right is darling Jane. For years I have had to look away at the reported beauty because A&E totally missed the mark on poor Jane. The new version got a perfect Jane: beautiful, innocent, happy, and naive.

I still only watch the A&E version, but in my minds eye I see the o5 Jane and it has somehow made it better.

Sam | 19 comments Actually, I didn't care very much for Jane. She was, most certainly, prettier, but she would've been so much more pretty if she tidied her hair once in a while! Also, Jane Bennet listening at keyholes?? Sorry, but that is NOT Jane Bennet's character! I love Rosamund Pike as an actress, and if she only got to play the full Jane Bennet (It seemed to me they played down her character...*wrinkles nose* So sad.) she would've been perfect!
