It's not Valentine's Day until someone breaks out Mr. Darcy.

I'm sorry. It can not be helped. I love Pride and Prejudice. The book first, the movie second. I prefer this version of the movie so I'm sorry to those of you who like the other one. (ERIN)
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
"You must know... surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I'd scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on."
Happy Valentine's Day!

xoxo,

  4. This just happens to be my favorite movie of all time... I've watched it over and over and know everyone's lines by heart. In fact I've watched it so much that my husband can pretty much say all the actors lines too. So many people like the other version-I could barely get through it. The other one is truer to the book but still-Yawn, BORING!

    When my husband and I go up hiking in the mountains and we finally get to the top I stretch my arms and shout, "OH What are men compared to rocks and mountains!!!"

    Happy Valentines day to you too!

  6. I love this movie version of Mr Darcy too...better than the PBS Masterpiece version. Love the movie soundtrack too!

  7. You know, I've never seen this version out of loyalty to Colin Firth. But now I'm thinking I need to sneak around behind his back ... :)

  13. Ugh! I can't believe I missed it when it came on tonight... now I'm going to have to dig up my version to watch. It is one of my all-time favorite books and movies. We continue to be the same person. ;-) I hope you and your hubby have a great V-day!

  19. "If you ask me, men are either eaten up with arrogance, or stupidity." I'm not bitter...I'm just sayin'. waha! Thanks to you...I'm watching it right now...yes, I've seen this version at least 25 times. The music and scenery are so lovely and calming. It's a great sleepy movie. I do, however, still completely and irrevocably believe that THE Mr. Darcy is Colin Firth. Oh, and ladies...Northanger Abbey will be on PBS' Masterpiece Theatre tomorrow...Valentine's Day!

    : )

    Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!

  25. Let's all cuddle up in Seattle and watch it again!!!! I LOVE the book and movie...love this version too! Four days:-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. You clearly have good taste!!! I love this version.
    Unfortunately for my man, now that I saw your post, he can forget about cuddling up to a romantic comedy tonight; it's Pride and Prejudice or nothing. ;)
    Although the last (and only) time I watched it with him, he mimicked the "I love, I love, I love you" part.
    Every one's a comedian.

  40. Oh, I'm all for ANY version of P&P. I've worn out so many copies of the book it's not funny. Mr. HH does not like the new version of P&P, but he loves the BBC version. Am I lucky or what? I actually like the new version because, hello, Matthew McFadyen.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ok I actually SIGHED. OUT. LOUD. Mr Darcy.........mmmm

    ReplyDelete
  42. love darcy....looking for one myself... :) visiting from sits.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I totally agree... I love pretty much any of these movies which have an "AND" (Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, etc..)

    Ah... soooo perfect for V-Day!

    ReplyDelete
  44. *long sigh*

    I love me some Jane Austen too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. The fabulous Elizabeth Bennet (my youngest daughter is her namesake...I'm not shy about that one, though I think that my husband pretends to ignore that fact, LOL) and Mr. Darcy make me swoon!

    Stoppin' by from SITS! LOVE this post...as soon as I saw that you were the featured blogger and had mentioned P&P, well, I had to fly on over and say hullo!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sorry, I am a Colin Firth girl myself. Excellent choice for Valentine's Day though, didn't even think of it.

    Happy SITS Day to you!

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is my fave version too.
    Now I have to go and watch it AGAIN since I saw your post. :)
    Happy SITS Day.

  49. Sorry, but Mr Darcy HAS to be Colin Firth!!!! :D

    Even Bridget Jones agrees...

  50. First of all, congratulations on being the featured blogger. I'm dropping by from SITS (of course) to say, "Hello" and give some comment love. :) Secondly, I LOVE Jesus too, am in God's word nearly every day, and have a faithbased blog. :) Third, I really like Mr. Darcy's character and think it is one of the best ever written!!! I dove into the book but have yet to finish it and I adore the movie. I have both versions on DVD But have only watched the version you posted (many times). I'm sure I'll get to the other one eventually. :) It is very nice "meeting" you. Best wishes.

    Kindest regards,
    Brook

  51. Since my hubby isn't romantic, I was planning to invite some girlfriends over for an evening of watching Jane Austen movies, i.e. Pride and Prejudice (the one you've shown) and Sense and Sensibility (with Emma Thompson). But turns out I don't have any single girlfriends! Oh well. Thanks for sharing this. I love those lines!

    Anna
    P.S. I watched How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days instead!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lovely-- I love both versions! What a story, so well-told!

    Happy SITS Day-- I'm still waiting my turn, and I'm so glad to find your sweet blog via SITS!

    Carry on!

  53. LOVE IT! That book is literally my favorite and I like the newer version too - but I love Colin Firth (thats his name rite?) as Mr. Darcy

    ReplyDelete
  54. okay I always swore I'd only ever watch the 6 hour version (cause I ove the book and the dialogue is so close) but you just made me think.. possibly, possibly mind you, that I might just go and watch it......

    ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. BTW have you watched Mansfield Park with Francis O'Connor? Excellent and has all the right heart swoony moments. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Stopping by from SITS. Love your blog and LOVE Mr. Darcy. This post has captured my heart. ;) That monologue you shared of his should be a requirement for all men who wish to propose to their girlfriends. I'd melt. Sigh...

  57. I haven't seen this version yet. But I love pride and prejudice, makes me want to watch it. Stopping by from SITS.

  60. He was one of my favourite actors in MI5 (a british series) and i was so disappointed when the killed him. it was strange to see him in this movie but in the end i liked it...my first introduction to Jane Austen.

  61. This is one of my favorite movies of all times. Happy Valentine's ( a bit late) to you and your loves.

    Stop by my blog when you have a few minutes, there is a special award waiting for you.

  62. Oh how I love Mr. Darcy. I fell in love in High School. Don't think hubby knows about this...so shhh!!

    Happy SITS day!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Colin's my Mr. Darcy, hands-down. This version is all right, but I missed the actual strength of the man, so you all can have him. Sorry, ladies, Mr.Colin "Darcy" Firth is mine; mine; he's all mine.

    True story: I was at Jane Austen's home and wanderting around in the little shop. There was a door-sized poster of Mr. Colin Firth's Darcy hanging on the back. It was gorgeous! I said I'll take one (was only about 2 pounds) and the clerk said, (I swear to God, this is true!) "Oh, that, madam. We sold out of the first 500 of those posters within a week after getting them in. And, we've simply refused to buy anymore to sell. Ms. Austen has, as you know, written other books."

    I'm telling you, that was the best dang poster...can't believe they wouldn't want to bring in more money for the foundation.

  64. I don't know if I adore Jane Austen or Mr. Darcy more. I'm in the middle on my annual fix... first I listen to the book in my car while driving around town, then re-read my favorite parts, which I can quote too, then watch the 6-hour long BBC version, my favorite.

    Unfortunately, Colin Firth somewhat ruined Mr. Darcy for me after I saw him in Mamma Mia.

    Enjoying this love fest with you all!
