We watched this because I wanted to watch something on a Sunday afternoon and the kids were around. It was fine. They didn't understand the Pride and Prejudice connection (though we have a board book version, so they were at least familiar with the basics!) The first half of the story was pretty slow and we were all a bit bored. The second half picks up (once the love triangle kicked in) and the 10 year old and I guessed the twist, but that added to our enjoyment. I had to explain the story to the 8 year old a couple of times and she was disappointed that her loyalties lay with the "wrong" man. Content-wise it was pretty tame, not much more than kissing, though a bit of bawdiness from the comic relief. A perfectly fine mother-daughter watch, but if you love Austen, you probably won't love this.
