Jane Hayes's adoration of all things Jane Austen is complicating her love life. Determined to be the heroine of her own story, Jane spends her life savings on a trip to Austenland, an eccentric Austen-inspired resort, where she meets two very different gentlemen, but has a difficult time determining where fantasy ends and real life, and maybe even love, begins.

I am a Janeite and if you are coming at it from that angle, let me just warn you, you will be disappointed. Approach this movie with an open mind. Expect a modern romantic comedy, not a period drama. The book was way better than the movie. The movie is pretty cheesy and weird in some parts. Funny, however.

I loved this film. I am not at all familiar with Jane Austen. I have not read her books at all- but after seeing this film I plan to! This is a comedy... Romantic comedy, situational comedy, physical humor, linguistic humor. I loved the story line. I want to buy this film for my own collection. And I am super picky about what I buy for dvds.

Keri Russell is spot-on perfect for this role. If you're not very familiar with (or a fan of) the works of Jane Austen, you might find this a bit air-headed, but I adore this movie.

Agreeing with previous comments, it is pretty cheesy. But if you are an Austenite, this is a good ending guaranteed kind of movie and pretty funny!

I know this is a bit cheesy, and like a mixture of Nanny McPhee and The Princess Bride— but that doesn't matter! It was fun, funny, and charming. I loved it!

I loved this movie and have watched it more then once. Yes, it is cheesy, a chick flick and predictable- but light hearted and fun!

I found it pleasing with somewhat low key humour and very few errors or annoyances that can be so common in most films.

Interesting idea (to someone who loves Austen), but poorly executed. My biggest complaint is about the situations of sexual misconduct, assault, and harassment and how they were dealt with: covered up, ignored, and given "happy endings." Not at all acceptable.

As light as a sugar cookie, and about as substantial. Gets off a a rocky start, but about halfway through, the actors find their footing and the movie becomes more enjoyable.

Kept on watching this movie, until half-way through then I gave-up.
Over-acting done here - It would have been better, if the plot had not been so predictable and Jenniifer Coolidge was taking the main lead all the time. Lost in Austen is far better than this. I hate it when the Americans try to talk British and do it so unconvincingly! I The only thing I liked was when you saw all the staff taking a break using modern-day technology!

[During a game of croquet, Mr. Nobley and Ms. Jane Hayes/Erstwhile get into an argument.]

Mr. Henry Nobley: "Perhaps I don't find the conversation of women to be...stimulating."

[Nobley takes a shot]

Ms. Jane Hayes/Erstwhile: "Oh, I can't imagine why you're still single."

Mr. Henry Nobley: "I don't see a ring on your finger."

Captain George East: [objects] "Nobley!"

Ms. Jane Hayes/Erstwhile: [to Capt. East] "No. No. It's alright. I...I asked for it."

Ms. Jane Hayes/Erstwhile: [to Mr. Nobley] "I'm single because apparently the ONLY good men are fictional."

Colonel Andrews: "Touche'."

Mr. Henry Nobley: "Oh. You think there's any good women out there? [huffs] No. No. No. They profess honesty and fidelity...and while you're away lecturing in Switzerland, they run off to Brazil with your mate."

Ms. Elizabeth Charming: [yells at Nobley] "Get on with the game you old windbag!"

[Nobley takes another forceful shot]

Mr. Henry Nobley: [to Jane] "Any father would be delighted to have a ninja as a daughter."
