In the movie, Keri Russell (TV’s The Americans) plays Jane Hayes, one such devoted fan, who has saved all her money for a trip of a lifetime — to the eccentric resort Austenland, where fans can live out the Regency era of the books.
Armed with her bonnet, corset and needlepoint, Jane aims to avoid spinsterhood, but her difficulties come in figuring out where the fantasy ends and real life – and maybe love — begins.
Rated PG-13, Austenland also stars Jane Seymour (Love Wedding Marriage), Jennifer Coolidge (American Reunion), J.J. Feild (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Bret McKenzie (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey). The film was directed by first-time helmer Jerusha Hess on a screenplay »
Living in the hipster capital of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, requires a certain approach to fashion. And one of the great aspects of "2 Broke Girls," a CBS Monday comedy, is that the two main characters flout typical hipster fashion rules, which, in the required irony of hipster-dom, makes them even more fashionable.
Set in a diner, the characters wear uniforms, and not even anything vaguely modern, but polyester that looks as if it would survive an atomic blast.
"The uniform has gone through several lives," Kat Dennings, who plays Max, tells Zap2it. "The first season was sort of getting it together. Then it became smaller and tighter and plunging. And maybe I lost some weight. It looks a little different. It has just been taken in to accommodate my body changing a little.
"Now it feels like I have really become the character when I am in that uniform," Dennings says. »

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2000, and another 25 overlooked gems...
The new millennium brought with it an eclectic range of hit films. Hong Kong action director John Woo brought us Mission: Impossible II, the most profitable film of the year at the box office. Ridley Scott enjoyed one of the biggest critical and financial successes of his career with Gladiator, while Robert Zemeckis created a memorable drama with Tom Hanks and a ball named Wilson in Cast Away.
From a comic book movie standpoint, 2000 was also a key year. X-Men not only established a successful film franchise which is still going, with X-Men: Days Of Future Past out next year, but also headed up a wave of big-budget Marvel adaptations which shows no sign of slowing down.
As ever, we've travelled far outside the »
Funnywoman Jennifer Coolidge, star of "2 Broke Girls," stopped by "The Talk" on Friday (Nov. 8), where she shared a funny anecdote about way back in the day, before her big break as a masseuse on "Seinfeld" in 1993, when she worked at a restaurant -- with Sandra Bullock.
"She was having a much better hostess career than I was. She was actually the hostess and I was the cocktail waitress. She ended up getting my shifts because I had such bad attendance," laughs Coolidge. "Sandra was incredibly popular, she would've won Miss Congeniality at the restaurant. Everybody loved her."
Coolidge also regales the "Talk" ladies with a story about the how she eventually quit her job -- at a restaurant she does not name that starts with a "K" and is located at the corner of Doheny and Wilshire in Los Angeles.
"I was riding my bike to work and I got hit by a car. »

Bill Murray‘s never doing another Ghostbusters film. We can all hem and haw and hold out hope that the prodigal son of ghostbusting might return, but Murray has staunchly refused to bust even a single ghost for years now. When Ray Parker Jr. famously exclaimed, “I ain’t afraid of no ghost,” maybe he didn’t have Murray in mind. But it seems Bill Murray’s disdain for the supernatural only counts when Ghostbusters is involved. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor has just attached himself to the upcoming Dreamworks animated film B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations. Murray joins the project alongside two other new additions in Octavia Spencer and Jennifer Coolidge. That titular organization is “the ghost world’s elite counter-haunting unit,” and Murray will be filling the role of Addison Drake, who is both a ghost himself and the film’s primary villain. Now »

That’s right: DreamWorks Animation has recruited a Ghostbuster for their upcoming animated comedy B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations.
