"Pride and Prejudice": Jane Austen's classic romantic and humorous tale set in Georgian England proves that love can conquer all - including social class, family scandals and corsets. For my British pound, the BBC miniseries adaptation starring Darcy-incarnate Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet - and clocking in at a whopping 300 minutes - ranks the highest on the romance meter. If your own Mr. Darcy makes it through this, he'll have learned chivalry from the master. And lord knows, a little of that goes a long way.
