Genre: Romantic Comedy
Starring: Keri Russell, JJ Field, Jennifer Coolidge, Jane Seymour
My Rating: Two thumbs up!
Yes, two thumbs, however, I would have to say that you should be in a romantic comedy sort of mood for this one! Not necessarily a silly mood, but maybe a little bit silly will help! Or, maybe if you aren't feeling silly at all, you will after seeing it!
What a fun movie! So this girl, Jane, loves Pride and Prejudice, actually all things Jane Austen, and especially Mr. Darcy. And don't we all? But her life is pretty much consumed with it. So, she decides to go to England where there's a place where one can act as if they are actually in a Jane Austen book, complete with hot hunks and romance.
She is so excited for this! But, when she gets there, things aren't so quaint and cool as she expected. It's a little bit hard to act like Elizabeth Bennett! But oddly enough, there is a guy who is very much like Mr. Darcy, mostly the pride part. And Jane is not impressed. She is much more attracted to the help! Before long, she is totally mixed up and doesn't know what's real and what's fantasy. It's awesome.
Ah, the antics that ensue! It's crazy fun, really. Crazy characters and crazy situations. Jane Seymour is awesome as the leader of the retreat, perfect really. And Jennifer Coolidge is absolutely wonderful as the crazy other client having her Austenland experience. Funny stuff.
The guy that played Mr. Nobley reminded me of Tom Hiddleston (aka. Loki), which was a good thing. But a little strange! What do you think?
Bottom line: Way too much fun! Much giggling from the audience!
