I saw the trailerfor this last night in the movie theater with a female friend of mine. She was agog and thought it looked adorable; I cringed and thought it looked horrible.
Jane Austen's novels were not about dreamy hunks--I don't get why Hollywood and chick-lit seem to think they were.
Reviews are dreadful; it's only at 33% at Rotten Tomatoes:
Saw it on Virgin America today. There are some easy laughs from Coolidge, but the thing is kind of a mess - too insanely cartoony, embarassingly so. I did however love the Nelly "It's getting hot in here" thing - in the credits, too. JJ Feild is ok-looking.
I really enjoyed it, and JJ Feild is hot.
I spent the whole time watching this dreck thinking J J Field was Tom Hildeston. He's just a second rate version of him, apparently. This movie was genuinely embarrassing.
