Movie Reviews

Village Voice - 8/10 by Alan Scherstuhl The ending is a bit of an audience-pleasing cop-out, a retreat into formula after 80 minutes or so of upending it. But those upendings are memorable, the cast dishy fun, and Jerusha Hess and Shannon Hale's breeze of a script (based on Hale's novel) is smart about the allure of fictional romances.
The Hollywood Reporter - 7/10 by John DeFore Hess gets her romance just grounded enough to handle the comic extremes supplied by the supporting cast.
Entertainment Weekly - 7/10 by Owen Gleiberman Austenland is kind of a one-joke movie, and the film's rhythm is a bit flaccid, but the joke, at least, has a twinge of wit.
Movie Talk - 6/10 by Jason Best Countless romantic comedies have looked to the novels of Jane Austen for inspiration, but you'd be hard pressed to find one so at odds with the author's spirit than the coarse, slapdash and painfully witless Austenland.
Flicks.co.nz - 6/10 by Rebecca Barry Austenland is bound to become the guilty pleasure of the spring.
Radio Times - 6/10 by Damon Wise The enduring appeal of Jane Austen's England is explored in this uneven but often hilarious romp - a comedy, for once, aimed squarely at a female audience.
Tampa Bay Times - 6/10 by Steve Persall Russell remains one of our most adorable, underused actors, although this role lacks the emotional and comedic breadth of her turn in 2007's "Waitress."
Film.com - 6/10 by Amanda May Meyncke Austenland is as light and airy as a cream puff, and as entirely unfulfilling. Fans of the book may find it amusing, but those looking for heartier romantic comedy fare would do well to look elsewhere.
The Guardian - 6/10 by Damon Wise It is smart and surprisingly literate, its only downfall being in that, in riffing on the work of a very talented writer on the subject of men and women, its screenplay could have used a little more of Jane Austen's immaculate sense of storytelling.
Time Out New York - 6/10 by Silvija Ozols The Napoleon Dynamite cowriter-turned-director should have applied her editorial eye more consistently; Coolidge and King especially are allowed to wander into mugging far too often and for far too long.
Empire - 6/10 by Ian Freer Fondly conceived but short of that razor-sharp Jane Austen wit.
The Telegraph - 6/10 by Tim Robey For a while, the film gets by on silliness alone. But in the end, it all amounts to no more than a sniggery guilty pleasure.
