I guess the remake? I didn't know this wasn't an original. This one had Meg Ryan, Annette Bening etc.


Yes that's the remake. The original was released in 1939.
Well, I say that. It might just be coincidental they have the same name :)

Cliffhanger. It was so corny! :D :doh:  I can't believe it's 24 years old. Makes me feel old. :blush2:

 

I also watched Me Before You which is on Netflix. It was ok - watchable, but nowhere nearly as good as the book.

I did a little digging and yes, it's a remake. :)  There's the very basic plot that's the same, but they've changed a few things as well. I don't think there were any men/boys in the 2008 movie, I wonder if there were none in the original, either :)

Cliffhanger! :cool: I've never watched it, but it's legendary, and by Finland's very own Renny Harlin :D

Watching the old black and white version of Pride and Prejudice with Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson - it takes a few liberties with Austen's text (:D) but I have a huge soft spot for it. :smile2:
