Movie Review: Austenland

It only took close to 10 months, but Allison and I finally made it to another movie! We were going to see Gravity, but I chickened out at the last minute. If it ends up getting nominated for Best Picture, we'll have to see it, but I was willing to take my chances!

So instead we saw some fluff, Austenland.

PlotJane Hayes is a single 30-something American woman obsessed with Colin Firth's portrayal of Mr. Darcy in the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice and wishes for a nice Englishman of her own. After her boyfriend breaks up with her, Jane decides to spend her savings on a trip to a Jane Austen-themed resort in England. {via}

Review: Super cute and awkward all rolled in one. I was laughing so hard at the awkward-ness and Allison and I were both squirming in our seats in quite a few parts, but it really was cute. Jennifer Coolidge {bend and snap from Legally Blonde} was in it and was great too. I would say Allison and I both really enjoyed it and would recommend it for anyone wanting some fluff.

I want to see this one. It sounds a little different from the book, but that's okay.

You definitely will be seeing Gravity if you're waiting for it to be nominated for Best Picture.
