Seems like a fun premise: a young woman from modern London who's mad about Austen exchanges places with Elizabeth Bennet, and finds the characters straying from the plot. But where the novel recognizes the complexity of money, class, and marriage, the movie dumbs everything down to "Love Above All." Amanda manages to get a terrible marriage "annulled" on the promise that she leave immediately, and yet, she stays and stays, and still the marriage is on track to be annulled. That's the level of logic and consistency for you. A wretched movie, but enjoyable because of the supporting characters (I didn't like Amanda).
