Jane Addiction

Or how I spent my maternity leave…

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that post partum bitches have Austenite hormones ragin’ crazy all up in their lady business.

Top 10 list of Jane Austen film/tv thingies

1. A&E’s Pride & Prejudice – nuff said. Wont be kicked off the top spot EVAH.
2. Sense & Sensibility from 95 – Emma Thompson & Hugh Grant? shizzle
3. Clash of the Emmas – Easy, Gwyneth wins. Kate Beckinsale is less likeable. Not as unlikable as  Keira Knightly though, so I wouldn’t totally pass on her Emma.
4. Mansfield Park from 99 – Sure, the film takes major cinematic liberties against the orginial story, but it was pretty-pretty and that’s what really matters. And the newer one is way too abridged.
5. Lost in Austen – A ‘fish out of water’ story for the anglophile. Capital, quite quite.
6. Clueless – Cher/Emma? they both have four letter names and were both hymenally challenged, duh.
7. Sense And Sensibility from last year on the BBC – it was time for an updated version and they did it right well – and the dvd has the Miss Austen Regrets bonus programme
8. Persuasion from last year on the BBC – Anne puts up with more than enough daft twats and tossers to finally get her man
9. Jane Austen Book Club – Clever enough, although the Emily Blunt character’s cougar affair story is  supposed to align with Mansfield Park? some of these are kind of a stretch
10. Becoming Jane – surprisingly I don’t totally hate Anne Hathaway in it, despite the fact that she can’t do a British accent for shit.

And I guess we’ll have to see where the new Emma comes in  ??

    We need to do an A&E P&P date night. That movie can never be watched too many times.


  2. As they say in England, TRU DAT!

    Contract should be grouped with retract, intractable, traction, and other words that share its root. ,
