Wondering why times are missing?

Bride & Prejudice

The director of cross-cultural hit Bend It Like Beckham gives us a full-on Bollywood-style romantic comedy. The twist? The story is taken from Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. Actually, the story of repressed romance and arranged marriages fits quite well into modern-day India. Charismatic star Aishwarya Rai is sort of a sexy version of Debra Messing. The whole thing is lavish, colorful and filled with exuberant fun. It's also pretty damn silly, and your taste for it will depend on your ability to go with the flow on elaborate, out-of-nowhere song-and-dance numbers. 111 minutes
