A good idea, that soon was piddled away on a script that never could bring me in, and some performances that were really pretty bad. Keri Russell is Jane, a fanatic Austen fan. She saves up and flies to old Blighty, to an improbable place where the world of Jane Austen is recreated by actors who cater to the lonely women who pay to come there. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, and it never did. I was also irritated by Jennifer Coolidge, a woman I usually like, whose part was both overwritten and overacted. I turned it off about halfway through.
