Movie Trailer Tuesday - Austenland

Welcome to "Movie Trailer Tuesday - my weekly blog feature where I share movie/dvd recommendations by posting a quick blurb and movie trailer for you to check out.

Have you watched any good movies recently? Feel free to share in the comments below...


Okay...I will say up front that this movie is not for everyone. It's kinda silly and goofy but I loved it and laughed out loud. A lot.

Having said that, there's no way my husband would've made it through 10 minutes of this movie (he probably couldn't even tell you who "Jane Austen" is so there ya go). If you don't know who Jane Austen is, then you might not appreciate this movie, either. If you are a fan of Jane Austen or of historical romance/comedy, then you will probably get a kick out of Austenland.

Jane Hayes is young and single and a HUGE fan of the classic novelist, Jane Austen. To say that she is a fan might be a bit of an understatement. She is obsessed with all things Jane Austen and her obsession gets in the way of any normal romantic relationship. When she decides to go on an authentic, immersive Jane Austen vacation experience, Jane is sure she will find the kind of romance that she has always wanted. But, after spending a little time in the Jane Austen era, she begins to rethink her entire attitude toward romance.

If you don't take Austenland too seriously, you will find that it is charming, light-hearted, and funny. It is a sweet story with lots of hilarious characters that will keep you laughing.

Rated PG-13 for some suggestive content and innuendo.
