I'd Like to Be Their House Guest

Jane Austen Movie Throwdown
Ah, it's the July 4th weekend in the Colonies when staggering amounts of peach pie, fried chicken, and fresh corn are consumed along with vast quantities of pale ale and ice tea. You have been invited to be a guest in a cozy house just outside the small village of Meryton and have received two invitations from two Bennet families. Whose invitation will you accept? A weekend with the Bennets from 2005's Pride and Prejudice or with the Bennets from Lost in Austen? Both families are, shall we say, a tad eccentric, and both can offer music, lively conversation, a turn around a pretty wilderness of sorts, lawn bowling, shooting, and ample food at mealtime.
