Um, okay . . .

So yeah. Two days later YouTube deigns to post my video. Three times. Because that is how many times I tried to share the love with you all. Those weirdos.

Even better the second time.

My favorite part is still this: What makes a hero larger than life? Dancing.

No Mr. Darcy played by Colin Firth? And even Kate Winslet's character didn't end up with the hottie. She went with ALAN RICKMAN. I love these movies, but I think I am just too practical.

In Twilight's sequel, Bella stops for a moment to think, "What if Juliet had stopped trying so hard to be a lovestory and had just settled for Paris?" Maybe in the end we all settle for Paris. Even Romeo would have probably opted to watch swordplay five nights a week if it was available. If he'd had a remote he would have flipped between that and jousting.

I dunno, Edgy. I came away from this with the understanding that it is galloping on horseback which makes a man a hero: See 2:41 - 2:50

ps. So glad we finally met!!

That's a hoot - really funny. A bit overwhelming though seeing that many "heros" in less than 4 minutes! And I think there was the odd (good looking, horse-riding) villain thrown in for good measure wasn't there? That must have been to pad it out to make up for the shortfall of Mr R and Mr D scenes. If I've got that wrong, bear in mind Miss N, that I don't have your encyclopaedic memory for book and film characters and the name of every minor actor that ever played them. Could you tweek it a bit in your lunch hour and add in what's missing?

I love the part where the girl is chained to the bed and it's talking about "wildest fantasy." Classic.

Also, I noticed the lack of Colin Firth and Alan Rickman. What gives?

Seriously hilarious, though.

The girl who made the video said that she didn't have the BBC P&P videos, hence the tragic lack of Colin Firth. I don't know why Willoughby and Henry are getting all the screen time!

Yeah...girl in bed? What's that from?

Sorry - I lost interest after the first few seconds and then gave in completely about half-way through...

Mary said... [reply]

Sorry, Nem. Must steal this. It's just too good.

Nemesis said... [reply]

Th, the girl in bed is from the new ITV version of Northanger Abbey. (pssst! You can watch it on YouTube!) The heroine has read too many gothic romances and has all these fantasies about rainy nights and sword-fightings and her friends being kidnapped & chained to beds by villians.

Blackjazz, that's okay. :-)

Steal away, Mary. I became the Favorite Boss Ever when I showed it to the high-school girls who work at the library.

I admit to sighing a few times during it. :)
