Three sentence movie reviews: Austenland
Overall, this isn’t the best romantic comedy, but it scores points for originality (Live in the world of Jane Austen!) and for being funny throughout (Jennifer Coolege’s inexpertly applied Cockney accent and random British phrases never got old). It also wins points for having Brett McKensie as a plausible romantic lead (hurrah the small, skinny, hairy guys) and for fooling me in its plotting. So all in all, it was a good way to spend two hours.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.

Have you read this book? Yes, it is a book. Well, it was first
I rather enjoyed reading it, as I remember. I haven’t seen the movie yet. Reviews were mixed.
I love pretty much all things Austen-related, but I hadn’t heard good things about this film, so I skipped it. I like Jennifer Coolidge though. She’s so funny.
