Overall, this isn’t the best romantic comedy, but it scores points for originality (Live in the world of Jane Austen!) and for being funny throughout (Jennifer Coolege’s inexpertly applied Cockney accent and random British phrases never got old). It also wins points for having Brett McKensie as a plausible romantic lead (hurrah the small, skinny, hairy guys) and for fooling me in its plotting. So all in all, it was a good way to spend two hours.
