Windy City Times

Although...mostly a nice, light, little trifle, it's ultimately half a soufflé at best-one that never quite rises to the occasion.

an interesting diversion that holds a lot of promise at first, is pleasant but generally underdelivers throughout, and then almost redeems itself with a last-minute twist that almost makes sense considering the movie's core weakness.

Austenland is a pretty film to look at, but underneath its look, there's just not much there.

FILMINK (Australia)

Rom-com fanatics and Austen aficionados may find gems in Austenland, but others will see this as a film with little sense or sensibility.

February 7, 2014

Based on the 2007 book by Shannon Hale, all the ingredients for a deft, sly, sleight-of-hand comedy are there. But the film is all over the place. The tone is off, the timing is off, the cutting is off. And it's just not funny.

December 19, 2013

This is just a desperate attempt to hook in gullible fans hoping for a little Darcy-inflected romantic swooning.

Austenland is bound to become the guilty pleasure of the spring.

Shadows on the Wall

Not only is it silly and twee, but it tries to present a "realistic" look at love that's just as corny as the romance it's making fun of.

It's generally lacking the wit and charm that Austen herself likely would have brought to the same material.

Observer [UK]

What might have made a five-minute skit becomes an extended exercise in taking a joke for a walk round a country house before allowing it to crap on the terrace and then stamping it to death on the manicured lawn.

Movie Talk

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.

This pantomime farce is in good, hearty spirits ... it knowingly pokes fun at itself ... simply enjoy the outrageous buffoonery.

Damon Wise
Radio Times

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.

This is London

Simply by smiling, [Russell] robs one of the will to live.

You would be well advised to give a wide berth to this largely useless adaptation of a book by Shannon Hale.

Not remotely believable, it plays like a TV comedy sketch painfully over-extended.

Austenland, allow me to tell you how ardently I loathe and despise you.

Guardian

So actively inept and so horribly precarious that it becomes curiously engrossing, like watching a monkey spin some plates or a blindfolded dog attempting to ride a unicycle.

Austenland has some nice ideas and a handful of amusing moments, but the direction and editing are poor, the acting is dodgy in places and the underdeveloped script fails to push any of the right buttons.
