Storyline

Austenland is a romantic comedy about 30-something, single Jane Hayes, a seemingly normal young woman with a secret: her obsession with Mr. Darcy-as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice-is ruining her love life; no real man can compare. But when she decides to spend her life savings on a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Mr. Nobley rescues Jane from the rainstorm by placing her on his horse during a torrential downpour, the rain is gone as they start to gallop away, the sun is shining, and everything is dry. Even with England's very changeable weather, this scenario would have been impossible. See more »

Quotes

Jane Hayes: Do you really believe, Mr. Nobley, that you can know the worth of a person at a glance?
Mr. Henry Nobley: Can you tell me that within the first few moments of meeting each person in this room, you didn't form firm opinions of their character?
Jane Hayes: Well, it would be a shame if my first impression of you proved correct.

Loved the movie - & I'm a guy who went with my wife
27 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Disclosure: I really like "Pride & Prejudice" & usually end up enjoying romantic comedies a ton, despite never wanting to see them ahead of time.

That said, I went in to this one thinking it sounded good and was laughing hard throughout. The story is clever, the acting solid, casting is great and I walked out a huge fan of Jennifer Coolige. omg seriously, can you get any funnier? Worth seeing the movie for her alone. Without her it was still really good. Go see this movie. We even went back and saw it again - I wasn't laughing as much the second time, but appreciated it and enjoyed it again still.
