...not a genre film but...deserves mention for portraying a character who is a fan of science-fiction but is not characterized as a hopeless geek...
August 27, 2008
A surprisingly successful, un-Hallmark-ified take on the traditional chick flick.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

The Jane Austen Book Club is both a testament to Austen's continued relevance and a fine example of classroom particulars converted into entertaining banter without losing any oomph.

January 24, 2008
Breaking up, jealousies, match making and a bid for second chances are the themes of this vibrant and uplifting film that explores life, love and desire.

November 16, 2007
THIS beautifully acted story is, underneath it all, a fairly formulaic chick flick.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 16, 2007
Positively marinated in oestrogen, this is aimed at middle-aged females - the more unhappily married the better - with the cardiganed cast spending much of the running time drinking tea on verandas and moaning about men over their knitting.

November 15, 2007
Average romantic drama that stays watchable thanks to its excellent cast, though it's neither as emotionally engaging nor as clever as it thinks it is.

November 14, 2007
Quite a nice little relationship comedy-drama, but essentially for an audience of what the French charmingly call 'women of a certain age'. Totally not the Superbad set, then.

November 14, 2007
Just fine in a sentimental, mainstream kind of way. Although by constantly referencing Austen's sharp wit and characterisation, this can only ever come up short in comparison.

Beyond the premise, there's nothing too surprising about this film from writer/director Robin Swicord, but it is perfectly agreeable.

Gives us a peek into the vulnerabilities, clever wit, well-intentioned manipulations and unpredictable anxieties of the female mind.

Chick flick's mature themes aren't for tweens.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 14, 2007
Requires an expertise in Austen's works but rewards you with a decadently satisfying ending - a guilty pleasure.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 11, 2007
The Jane Austen Book Club pretty much defines the term 'enjoyable chick flick.'
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 10, 2007
Intelligent, entertaining, emotional and amusing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
October 10, 2007
A perfectly cast, beautifully scripted, smartly directed little movie that won't get the attention it deserves because it'll be dismissed as a 'chick flick.'
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 9, 2007
Almost too clever and cute for its own good.
