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.
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.
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.
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.
RogerEbert.com - 6/10 by Susan Wloszczyna All this sounds eminently promising. But it would need a wordsmith as witty and wise as Emma Thompson, who won an Oscar for adapting the big-screen version of 1995's "Sense and Sensibility," to pull it off and do Austen herself justice.
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.
USA Today - 6/10 by Claudia Puig A humorous chick flick for well-read audiences, Austenland is a novel concept.
Flicks.co.nz - 6/10 by Rebecca Barry Austenland is bound to become the guilty pleasure of the spring.
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.
Chicago Sun-Times - 6/10 by Mary Houlihan It’s a romantic comedy with all sorts of possibilities that instead relies on heavy-handed sight gags and over-the-top performances.
