Movie Haiku:Galloping thru plotlines with no time for complications or context, screenwriter Deborah Moggach turns Jane Austenís masterpiece into conventional romantic comedy with coltish Knightley as Lizzy & MacFadyen as her love-struck Darcy. Bingleys, Collinses, & Gardiners barely register; sisters meld into one. Nevertheless, when speaking Austenís words, Lizzy is indestructible.
