Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Austenland (based on the novel by Shannon Hale) is a fun romantic comedy, despite the fact that it falls back on some of the typical romcom cliches, making it seem like women need to be rescued from a life of loneliness by romance. Still, it does try to question those predictable assumptions somewhat and is buoyed by strong performances. Jane Austen fans will particularly enjoy the inside jokes and references to her work. There's not much language (except for "crap") and no drinking (though one character acts drunk), but you can expect some kissing and heavy flirting (as befits a movie with an Austen theme).

Sexual Content

Couples kiss, sometimes passionately, often tenderly; some sexual innuendo/suggestive dialogue.

Violence

Two men get into a fight at an airport; a man forces himself on a woman, but she trips him up and stops him.

Language

"Crap" is about the extent of it.

Social Behavior

Love -- and life -- doesn't follow the trajectory of books (or movies, for that matter). Women don't need rescuing; neither do men. All you can do is be true to yourself, and if something, and someone, is meant to be, so be it.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character is lecherous and seems drunk all the time.
