5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Fun November 13, 2013
By Rissi
Format:DVD
Comedy is never just black and white. There is a certain talent to getting it "right." Some movies go for the classy sort and in turn, earn viewer's gratitude. Others shoot for the wild and crazy, the sort that is lumped into the slaphappy. This Austen-inspired comedy of errors opts for the latter and the question on everyone's mind is, does it work?

Being a 30-something who lives a mundane existence and cannot keep herself from loving Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy is not something that endears Jane Hayes (Keri Russell) to the game of dating. Her friend is concerned Jane just wants the fantasy. But really, her love of all things Darcy isn't that bad... okay, so it is a bit obsessive which prompts Jane to strike a bargain with Molly. First she books a trip to Austenland an all-inclusive Jane Austen experience run by Mrs. Wattlesbrook (Jane Seymour), and if, upon her return she realizes regency life is just that, a fantasy, she'll give up her dreams of finding her own Darcy. With ticket in hand, Jane books a flight to London and lands smack dab in the middle of every girl's dream.

Once there, Jane befriends Elizabeth Charming (Jennifer Coolidge) and strikes up a friendship with the groundskeeper, Martin (Bret McKenzie). When she's thrown together with the moody and arrogant, Henry Nobley (JJ Field), Jane sees the faux in her childhood dreams. Ever since she set foot on Austenland's grounds, everything about being the heroine in her own Austen story has been an act... or has it?

Right up front, let me say that I had conflicting thoughts on this book-to-screen adaptation. Only my love of all things Austen-at-the-cinema kept me glued to theater openings related to 'Austenland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diabolically brilliant! November 13, 2013
By Shawna
Format:DVD
LOVED this movie! Poor Jane Hayes (Kerri Russell) gets to have that dream of getting away from it all and going to her dreams. Just to find out it really isn't a dream but a whole lot of different things. It became a reality she was unprepared for. Imagine going from cars and cellphones to horse and carriage, dressing for the 1800's, trying to adopt the manners of the 1800's. Jane steps into that world with a planned vacation and meets up with a handsome stable man who may or may not be her Mr. Darcy. Meanwhile, the guy who plays the role of Mr. Darcy isn't as he seems either. Actors hired to play characters from Pride and Prejudice. Contrast the actors in one scene to another involving a swimming pool. Toss in a raunchy tune and some raunchy reading (Jennifer Coolidge) here and there and you'll wonder if you weren't somehow caught in the twilight zone. Somehow, it all works out. The script is brilliant and all of it is very well played. Be prepared to laugh at yourself if you are a Jane Austen fan. Most women will probably enjoy this movie. Don't worry guys... others of the male gender also found themselves laughing as well. Congratulations and thank you to the writer, director, and actors of this brilliant movie. And I should say thank you to Stephanie Meyer for producing this. (Not a big fan of hers but I will give credit where it is due).

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Book December 10, 2013
By harriut
Format:DVD
Never in my life have I gone to see a movie 4 times in the theater!! Didn't expect to love it that much. Rarely do I recommend the movie over the book- but it is actually better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Hilarious!! December 8, 2013
Format:DVD
This movie was not at all what I was expecting! I did not know that it was based off of a novel until after I watched the movie. I went in thinking that I probably would not like it, but I love Jane Austen stories so I gave it a try. I am glad that I did. I was laughing the whole time. It's just so goofy that it works. Don't expect it to be historically or even Jane Austen accurate in any way. Just have fun!! I've been waiting for it to come out on DVD or Blue-Ray for so long.

It is an utterly silly movie but I watched it with some girlfriends and we couldn't stop laughing! I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys Jane Austen and romantic comedies.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing February 15, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved Shannon Hale's novel, "Austenland", and was very excited when I learned it was going to be made into a movie. I waited patiently for the movie to be made, be released in theatres, and then come out on DVD, since it wasn't released in a theatre near enough to my home for me to see it on the big screen. I read the reviews of those who had seen it on the big screen and was even more excited: the 'regular viewer' crowd was delighted with the movie, and praised it; better and better. Finally the movie was released, I joyfully opened the package and put in the DVD, and... kept waiting for everything I loved about the novel to appear before me. It didn't. I am happy for all those who loved the movie, but it was a terrible disappointment for me.

Beware, mild SPOILERS included.

I am very aware that it is nearly impossible to make a movie that follows a book exactly. I'm ok with that. I understand that directors, producers, and screenplay writers take liberties with the original novel, either for practical or artistic reasons; again--ok, fine. But... when a novel is made into a movie, isn't the basic idea to make the movie so that it follows the book fairly well? That you want to make a movie that--in the case of Austenland--charms you the way the book did? That's logical. My complaint, then, is this: why make a movie where some of the main characters are changed to the point that they are not at all what the book presented them as? When major plotlines aren't followed? When sight gags, slapstick, and innuendo take over everything? It's not at all what I expected, hoped for, and waited for.

Austenland had a great deal of potential, but the characters were not multi-dimensional. I found it to be tedious and only mildly amusing in places. Read more
