4.0 out of 5 stars Chick flick for Jane Austen fans June 18 2012
By G. Larouche TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars need background on Jane to fully get the ideas Dec 16 2010
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Nice Ensemble Piece Aug. 9 2010
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible quality July 30 2014
By Connie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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

4.0 out of 5 stars jane austins book club June 7 2009
By K. ditz
As a fan of Jane Austins,I liked the idea of people in a book club, that got together to discuss each book and what they thought was happening and their different debates and opinions.
