  1. Well, though I enjoyed the BBC version it's not my favourite. I prefer the one with Kate Beckinsale for two reasons. Firstly, the excruciating moments have been toned down and I think they should be there, but also I just love Mark Strong as Mr Knightley, he is just exactly how I imagined Mr Knightley to be right down to the gorgeous voice. Jonny Lee Miller is very likeable but he doesn't quite have the gravitas and presence that I think Mr Knightley would have. So on that basis I will go Clueless. I haven't got round to buying Clueless yet, and this will give me an excuse too :)

    1. I have yet to see the Beckinsale version in full! I really need to track it down. =)
      And you know, I have never been a big Jonny Lee Miller fan. EVER. I don't know if I was holding Edmund Bertram against him for a decade, or what, but he just never did it for me, and I was so disappointed to see him cast as Knightley -- but he eventually won me over, and I don't think I find him quite so off-putting as a result. lol!

  2. Well, I prefer Gwyneth Paltrow version of Emma, so I'll go with Clueless.

    1. I do love that version (as a personal connection, which I'll talk about during AIA), but it's not on Netflix, Prime or Hulu, so I had to rule it out. I can't really have a watch-along without giving a fairly easily accessible way for people to watch along. Had to rule out the Beckinsale version for the same reason.

  3. I LOVE the BBC Emma but it is super long. SUPER long. And I miss seeing Paul Rudd's dimples, so I'm gonna vote Clueless. :D

  4. I don't have a preference about the movie night choice. I like them both for different reasons. But as to do-able length? Yeah, that's Clueless. :)

    1. Yeah, I think BBC would have to be split over 2 nights.

  5. I believe I own them all. I may have some on VHS which if I do I need to find the DVD versions. I love all the Emma but my least favorite which will probably get me a lot of hate is Paltrows version. I like it just not as much as the others.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
