1. Bridget Jones’s Diary
This chick-flick classic is a modern adaption of Pride and Pred. With the films based on Helen Fielding’s insanely good books, Bridget Jones’s Diary captures so many relatable moments that have become iconic. And then there’s Colin Firth making a return as Darcy; we can’t forget about him.
2. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
Breaking ground as an Emmy-winning vlog series, the Lizzie Bennet Diaries is Pride and Prejudice with a unique twist. Under the guise of being a personal video blog, the videos follow Lizzie in her endeavours like no other adaption has ever done before. Check it out.
Recently recreated in Iggy Azalea’s music video of Fancy, Clueless is an adaption of Emma, set in a 90’s high school. With Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd, how could you go wrong?
4. Lost In Austen
Lost In Austen is a mini-series that sees Pride and Prejudice’s biggest fan Amanda through a portal and into the very book she has re-read a million times over. A 21st-century woman living the life of 19th-century Elizabeth Bennet sheds a light on the old classic that is hard to resist.
5. Scents and Sensibility
Even the pun in the title surely gives away the terrible-brilliant hybrid of this Austen classic of a similar name. With a 4.8 score on imdb, we can try, but ultimately, we cannot stay away. Is it so bad, it’s good?
6. Bride and Prejudice
This one is a Bollywood, contemporary version of Pride and Pred. If you’re an Austen fan and this hasn’t been caught on your radar, you need to amend this immediately. Did I mention there was singing?
7. From Prada to Nada
Tacky and terrible, there’s something about these movies that we just can’t resist. Sometimes we just want to see Sense and Sensibility so far from its original eloquence and pretence, and into the modern world.
8. Material Girls
This Hilary/Haylie Duff classic is similarly based off Sense and Sensibility, albeit fairly loosely.
9. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Coming Soon)
Seth Grahame-Smith’s bestselling parody has had a movie apparently in the works for years now, but it is allegedly finally nearing its creation. Whatever the result, let’s hope it deserves a true place on this list.
