    Oh, awesome! Love it – thanks for posting this! It’s that sort of day and I just found out my ex has a new girlfriend – I hate to be a horrific cliche but Mr Darcy & co are just what I need today. Well, either that or Godzilla-type city-destroying mayhem. =(

    It’s edited so well to the music also!  =D

    Yummy! And there were several that I have not seen so I am deeply grateful for the list of titles at the end. Working on one … last … paper, and then I think I’ll be blissing out with some videos as a reward for completed homework.
    Thank you!

    Silly yumminess was exactly what I needed this morning.  Especially with glimpses of Alan Rickman, Richard Armitage, and Benedict Cumberbatch in there.

    Dry or wet, I’d rather have Alan Rickman to a wet Colin Firth.

    Colin Firth, You had me at that..I mean in college we had it taped, and would watch Him walk up that hill soaking wet over and over. And he still looks yummy today!

    Definitely thankful for a wet Colin Firth but sooo disappointed this didn’t include him walking out of the water all wet!  Maybe I missed it…maybe I’ll just have to watch it a few times more to make sure it’s not there!  But thanks (plus I have always loved that song)!

    Amazing!  Colin Firth is just…fantastic.

    Melissandre says:

    Can we identify all the movies?  I saw Emma, Sense and Sensibility, both Pride and Prejudices, North and South, and what I assume is Amazing Grace (the Ioan Gruffud one).  What are the others?  Help a girl out!  The swordfighting one looks intense (and delicious).

    I *love* this … I’m also going to be sharing it everywhere. :)

    @Melissandre – I think I noticed a list at the end of the piece, but as I had OD’d on man-candy, not 100% sure.  I know I saw Richard Armitage, and in addition to the list you have, I’m pretty sure there was the other P&P, Northanger Abbey, and – thrilling to me – Shadow of the North.  I’m not sure what else, though.

    @Melissandre: From the YouTube info of clips in the video:

    Amazing Grace 2006
    Casanova 2005
    Emma 1996
    NorthAnger Abbey 2007
    North & South 2004
    Persuasion 2007
    Pride & Prejudice 1995, 2005
    Sense & Sensibility 1996, 2008
    The Shadow in the North 2007
    Wives & Daughters 1999

    Damn, I forgot to mention—the sword fight is from the 2008 version of Sense and Sensibility, I’m pretty sure.  :)

    Ros says:

    Yes, there’s a list:

    Amazing Grace
    Northanger Abbey
    Sense and Sensibility
    Pride and Prejudice (x2)
    Wives and Daughters
    North and South
    The Shadow in the North

    Personally, I wish that Wet Colin Firth hadn’t happened.  Though I did absolutely love the parody of it in Lost in Austen.
