In My Own Defence

Yes, I am a middle-aged lesbian who has an inexplicable fascination with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. But in my own defence, at least I'm not one of those crazy Janeites who worship all things Austen. Their obsessiveness is satirized in this new over-the-top movie Austenland. It looks like a total hoot! I MUST see it when it comes to Edmonton!



I wonder if My Rare One would buy me one of those life-sized cardboard cut-out figures of Mr. Darcy/Colin Firth for Christmas? Hmmm . . . .

Oh my, I'm going to have to see this too. I have to confess, I had my mother make me one of those empire-waisted Austen-inspired dresses when I got married. I did know that I needed to draw the line at the bonnet though!

OMG... hysterically funny! I love all those Austen-like romances too. But to be honest, most of the men are just cads...cads I tell ya. Their bulging crotches, well, I sorta like those though, even on the cads. LOL

Green Monkey said...

Oh dear, I liked Bret better when he was the other half of Flight of the Conchords. I think I'm gonna give this one a pass. :)

Jeanne said...

I had heard about this film. Looks like it would be fun to see. And the fame of the movie is only overshadowed by the notoriety of the Janeites!

Robin Larkspur said...

Thanks for posting this! It looks so funny; can't wait to see it!

That's okay, everyone is entitled to a fantasy or wish. If Julianne Moore knocked on my door this minute or any minute, I would pack my bags right there and then! :)

Francie M said...

hahahahahaha! I can't wait to see it. But nothing could improve on Mr. Darcy in a wet shirt!!

Jim said...

And you could decorate him with all sorts of 'interesting' ornaments!! Forget the xmas tree!

Anne Johnson said...

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Hahahaha...I love the cardboard cutout! Cra-zy stuff. This looks like fun. I had no idea about this movie.

Riot Kitty said...

Hey, ANYONE would drool over Colin Firth. I'm sure plenty of straight guys have man crushes on him.

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

OMG, you made me burst out laughing! I had no idea about this movie! I can't wait to see it! LOL!!!

Tally Ho! Rather worryingly, that looks a lot like my neighbours in that clip.

must be a lesbian thing..I don't find him attractive at all...now Antonio Banderas? that's a different story.

DWei said...

I really didn't see the appeal of Pride and Prejudice. Maybe I'm don't like Jane Austin's works that much.

Cheryl said...

I didn't realize that Austenland was coming. AND you are right...it sounds like a hoot.

Lon Anderson said...

This looks like a film in which I must see.
