I have not laughed so much since the original "Hangover" (COMPLETE OPPOSITE to this movie). It just kept getting better. I love horses, and historic castles, and Austen's wit, and this movie has it all, including Mr. Darcy played by Tom Hiddleston's ear-y twin brother. I am going to insist that my best friend watch this with me. I recommend it to anyone, it's more Monty Python/Blackadder/Muppets Movies than sicky-sweet American rom-com genre. (also no sex/violence, so your grandma can watch too).

Fluffy rom-com with almost nothing to do with Austen.

Chick movie for sure. The best word I can describe this movie is adorable. I would watch it again. Pure fluff but fun.

This movie was better than I thought it was going to be. A cute, girly, Friday night, chick flick. Jennifer Coolidge is funny as always.

Was feeling abit down when I watched it and it definitely cheered me up. Snorted at just about everything just because I could. Although it won't be winning any awards any time soon, its totally cute in cliche sort of way. I really love the costumes ^^~

Lightweight chick-flick. Keri Russell's character gives us no indication of why anyone would be attracted to her; her main appeal seems to be that she is the least-obnoxious of the three female guests at the resort. The cast gives it their best, but it's still a bunch of fluff.

As most people have stated, this could have been much better. I adore Keri Russell as an actress and she was charming in this one, too. If you haven't seen Waitress yet I'd recommend it.

This movie could have been much, much better. The direction was off; transitions from one scene to the next were abrupt and incongruous; screenplay needed a big re-write; character motivations were underdeveloped; I absolutely couldn't see why Mr. Nobly fell for Miss Erstwhile. She was more awkward and silly than intelligent and attractive. I really liked JJ Field as Mr. Nobly, the Darcy character, and Jennifer Coolidge, James Callis, and Georgia King were outrageously funny, but sometimes a bit too ridiculous. It is a weird setting though. Maybe that was the problem. A place where you go to have an actor fake fall in love with you...no wonder there was little character development, there was little character.
