While I was waiting for Part 2 to make its way across the nation, I comforted myself with watching the 5 hour Colin Firth version. This is my mom's favorite version.I am partial to the 2005 version. At just over 2 hours, I can get a quick chick flick fix without sacrificing the main story elements. Regarding the ending, in the words of one of my APU flute students, "Who knew walking could be so HOT!"
I find that I get the urge to view the Bollywood version after especially long outsourced technical support sessions.
Today I was looking forward to a relaxing afternoon of viewing the long-delayed disc. I was suitably drowsy and already planning my nap time as the end neared. Mr. Darcy had just begun his declaration of love when...............the...................disc..........froze.
I'd sat through this rather long, rather dry rendition knowing that the end, at least, couldn't disappoint. But I was wrong.
I was NetFoiled.
Netflix has been duly notified.
I don't know. Maybe I've got time for the full 5 hour version.
Or maybe I should just practice my flute.
