the Mormon version
Pride and Prejudice: a Latter-Day Comedy
Yet another adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice ... however, this one is different. This P&P is like ... um ... what My Big Fat Greek Wedding was. It's chalk full of sub-culture.
Yes indeed, Jack Wickam is a polygamist.
Oh ... and Collins is just back from his 2 year mission and looking for a wife to multiply and replenish the earth with.
The girls? A bunch of Brigham Young University roommates. Jane is from Argentina.
Ah ... and Darcy ... he wouldn't be Darcy without the make-any-girl-weak-in-the-knees British accent.
If anything, watch it because *my goodness* it's a freakin' Mormon Pride and Prejudice.
