I have previously mentioned the Emma Roberts' teen flick, Wild Child in the Pride & Prejudice References in Pop Culture (Part 2) as one of the movies that referenced P&P movie, but I've never seen the movie until now when ABC Family recently premiered it last Sunday. I had DVR'd it, since I didn't get to see it when it aired. Just saw this movie this past Thursday and now I know which parts/scenes from the movie it references P&P movie and mentions Keira Knightley. I thought it was pretty cool and had to laughed at those two brief scenes (including one of the characters sketching one of Keira's Elizabeth Bennet's costumes/dresses and showed pictures of KK as EB from the P&P movie...see screen cap collage I made of it on top, to your left or below), as they were funny, lol. I wish I have the clips to show you and share here, but unfortunately, there seems to be no clips of these two scenes in YT or anywhere else that I could find.
Here are screen caps of the two scenes (which I thought were the funniest scenes) from Wild Child movie...
Georgia King) goes to the social dance dressed as Keira Knightley's character Elizabeth Bennet with two guys (who were actually girls) dressed up as Mr. Darcy (lol), she enters to a music (the opening track titled, Dawn) from the Pride & Prejudice movie, and then recites to Freddie (Alex Pettyfer) one of the "Mrs. Darcy" lines from the movie and pouts like KK...lol!
Updated 1/29/14: Georgia King kept her Austen connections going when she recently co-starred in the 2013 romantic-comedy film, Austenland film starring Keri Russell.
Also, after watching Wild Child, I happened to catch one of the episodes' reruns of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch on ABC Family (again, lol) that same day...and wow, another P&P reference...but this time, they were Pride and Prejudice novel/Jane Austen references.
Check out the screen caps/collage I've also made as well as transcribed the Sabrina quotes mentioning JA and P&P novel. Also, I've included an embedded the YT clip of that particular scene for you to watch (if you haven't seen it yet) below...
"Sabrina, the Muse" (#5.16)
Episode description: When Kevin says that Sabrina was the inspiration for his songs, Sabrina feels like she has to be his muse 24 hours a day.
Sabrina: "Who's my favorite author?"
Kevin: "Ahh...GD Salinger?"
Then, Kevin bought Sabrina a P&P novel.
Watch the clip of it below...
Sabrina: "Wow, Pride and Prejudice?! You bought this for me?
Kevin: "Nah, I swiped it from the library...I'm kidding."
Screen caps/collage of Kevin and Sabrina holding the P&P novel...
Just saw one of the deleted scenes (titled: "What did you do all day?") in Carey Mulligan's An Education film (which she co-starred with former P&P co-star Rosamund Pike) and Carey's Jenny character mentioned P&P and Jane Austen to her two school mates as she read a question for an school related assignment or so.
Jenny: "Show, from any two scenes in Pride and Prejudice, how far it is true that Jane Austen's methods are essentially dramatic."
