Critic Reviews for The Jane Austen Book Club
The contrivance is horrible, the schmaltz unpardonable.
The Jane Austen Book Club, based on Karen Joy Fowler's bestseller, offers a distinctive vision of hell - a plane of being where there are only six novels that matter, and they're consulted like all-purpose agony aunts.
This is a rom-com that tries to be sassy and true but ends up ridiculously unlike any kind of reality at all.
A twittering soap opera about five Californian women using Jane as an agony aunt for their love problems.
The women are so seemingly at ease in their roles that the movie drifts towards its happy-ever-after finale without a missed beat.
Audience Reviews for The Jane Austen Book Club
Interesting how six members of the book club's lives play out over six months - one month for each of Jane Austen's books. I had two problems - 1) the movie was too predictable and 2) I would probably have rated it one more star if I had actually read Austen's books. I've only read one (P&P), and it hardly had a role in the movie at all.
Much like an actual Austen novel, a group of women are changed by their relationships, defined by their sex, and smart as whips. Good for any Austen aficionado, or at least someone who's seen one of the adapted films.
I found this film so dumb. I found that the acting was not the best.
