Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. This book/movie is very light-hearted, though not as witty as some of Austen's other works. Henry Tilney, however is a much more agreeable person than, dare I say it, Mr. Darcy? Also, Tilney understands muslin. : )

BBC: Persuasion vs. S&S

No other version compares, in my humble opinion. Rupert Penry-Jones as Captain Wentworth? Yes please!
