A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in this reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield in order to conquer the undead once and for all.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies manages to wring a few fun moments out of its premise, but never delivers the thoroughly kooky mashup its title suggests.
The movie strives to be both scary and funny but winds up being neither.
June 25, 2017
An unexpected and off-kilter treat, thanks to a BBC-quality cast and (un)deadpan humor.

Common Sense Says
A good Jane Austen movie, but a poor zombie movie.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is both a romantic drama and a horror-action movie, just like the 2009 mash-up book by Seth Grahame-Smith (which itself was inspired by Jane Austen's classic novel). There's a lot of zombie violence, though it's largely bloodless, with more suggested than actually shown. Still, zombies are killed, and there are some scary and/or gross images, as well as martial arts fighting, swords, blades, guns, battles, and explosions. Characters talk a great deal about marrying each other; there's one scene of passionate kissing and a flirty fight scene during which a male character pops the button off the top of a woman's dress, exposing a bit more of her cleavage. Language isn't an issue, and characters drink only in social settings.
