Format: DVD
Quick tip. Before you start to watch the movie, go to the Special Features and watch the background history on Jane Austen. It'll help a lot in understanding the movie.

If you want, although it'll spoil some of the story, check out the feature on each character in the movie and who they are a representative of in the world of Jane Austen novels.

If you know Jane Austen in and out, you'll get way more out of this than the average person.

Having said that and this being a chick flick, I found two of the male roles the most interesting. Hugh Dancy as a lovable but bumbling sort of male dropped into this book club world of women is very good. Jimmy Smits (Cane!) is also surprisingly good as a husband who is lost and then finds his way (hopefully I haven't given too much away by saying that here).

Yes, the female roles are good but I only found Kathy Baker and Emily Blunt to be intriguing. The other three I just found to be OK (and I won't say anything more on that).

P.S. One bizarre thing is director Robin Swicord who appears on the extras looks uncanningly like an older Hayley Wickenheiser (Canadian women's hockey star).

Format: DVD
This is a cute little chick flick about a group of people, each with their own relationship issues, getting together to read Jane Austen's books, and watching the influence of the books unfold in their lives. Hugh Dancy and Emily Blunt's characters are the ones that really stuck with me. The plot is slightly predictable, but the ensemble cast and the good-natured humor of the story make this a lovely feel-good movie.

If you are a Jane Austen newbie, you may find this boring, as there are tons of references to the books and to the author's life. But someone who knows Austen's work well will find this a light-hearted and enjoyable flick.

If you are looking for some nice acting, a little snappy patter, great soundtrack, and a very pleasant way to spend an hour or so, get the DVD.

The quality is horrible. It shows up as blurry black and white on my DVD player and my Blue Ray,which reads all my other DVD's doesn't even recognize it. I can only watch it on my computer
