Now for the Marys and Collins, i put them together because they are both socially awkward. I personally like Mary in the 2005 version. She is not portrayed as ugly, but plain. She does not want to be anything but plain. I like her and i don't think Austen would have made her exactly so ugly as every one thinks. And for the Collins, i like the 2005 actor Tom Hollander (Wives and daughters, Pirates of the Caribbean 2-3), he has played some really geeky roles and the flip side of that. But in the 1995 both parts do give off a fair share of laughs.
