Snappy, sarcastic, implausible caper that looses almost all momentum 1 hour in. Also, how do you feel about Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt making out? If you just threw up in your mouth a little, you might wanna avoid this.
I have watched this movie many times on television and once on a DVD thru Netflix. Loved it so much I decided to purchase. The one I received from Walmart was not the same. It was edited so much it took out one of my favorite scenes. I returned it. VERY disappointed!
I am a HUGE fan of historical\/period\/costume dramas; so after viewing the trailer online, I knew this would be something I would be interested in!\nHaving already seen \"Mrs. Brown\" (starring Dame Judi Dench, and Bill Connolly), and \"Victoria & Albert\" (starring Victoria Hamilton, and Jonathan Firth- yes, Colin Firth's brother)- I already knew a little history of H.M. Queen Victoria.\n\nDespite a couple of inaccuracies (such as Albert being shot), I still found the film very enjoyable.\nThis was only the 2nd film I had seen either of the two leads in.\nEmily Blunt in \"The Devil Wears Prada\", and Rupert Friend in \"Pride & Prejudice\" 2005. Being that both of those roles were only supporting characters at best, I guess I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised though, to see both of them shine in their roles (Emily especially)!!\n\nMy only complaint is that it was over too soon! (But since the title is \"The YOUNG Victoria\"- I guess it stands to reason.)\nIf you're interested in learning more, I would recommend viewing the two films I mentioned earlier. The cinematography was beautifully done; the locations, and costumes are breathtaking! Also, it's only got a PG rating!!
This was nothing like what I expected. The only reason the end of the movie was seen, was because my wife was watching it, also. She liked it, I didn't care for it. It's not his typical comedy you would expect.
The Jane Austen Book Club, based on Karen Joy Fowler's bestseller, offers a distinctive vision of hell - a plane of being where there are only six novels that matter, and they're consulted like all-purpose agony aunts.
