This very narrowly avoided being a completely typical romantic comedy. Without the twist ending, I would've given it 2 stars or less. Jennifer Coolidge was trying too hard to be funny, and usually failed. Keri Russell was good, but I found it hard to believe that as a self-professed HUGE Jane Austen fan, she pretty much gave up on Austenland 5 minutes after she got there. The supporting cast (besides Coolidge) helped save this one.
