Admittedly, I haven't read P&P, but isn't it about a group of sisters trying to get married? How is that feminist?

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single orangutan in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a book.

It's full of outdated concepts, histrionic outbursts, and makes men slowly shake their heads in disbelief. How is that *not* feminist?

No, this is P&P&O not P&P&Z.

Note to self: probably a bad idea to read P&P&Z to O.

The orangutan probably just thinks someone chattering away to him in Polish is amusing.

Can't believe you admit watching Gremlins II.
Had successfully edited it from memory until just now....dammit.

No, it's about a group of sisters being pushed into arranged marriages, with Elizabeth choosing to defy her parents and tradition, believing she was more than "just a wife" and either go unmarried or marry for love. Highly progressive for its time.

Christopher Lee has a cameo. Daniel Clamp sends a Gremlin down the shredder while his deputy gets molested by a hermaphroditic (??) Gremlin in the men's room. The crazy Asian photographer. Dracula doing the news (with Brain Guy). Gizmo doing his best Rambo III. Gargoyle Gremlin. The Canadian restaurant. The guys making fun of the Mogwai "rules" in the control room right before they get eaten. George-and-Lenny Gremlins. That weird vignette in the middle where the Gremlins "fark up" the movie (complete with a Leonard Maltin sighting).

What's NOT to like?
