Becoming Jane, Again

It was at the library, that is why I got it again. I didn't really like it that much the first time, so why did I watch it again?I still found it weirdly inappropriate for the world of Jane Austen, boxing? Prostitutes? Naked buts? Come ON. I watched the extras and all of the actors dutifully shared their knowledge of the time, costumes, manners or the world of Jane Austen, yet the movie seems to stray from this, in so many ways. Anne Hathaway who plays Jane too.

I agree about not liking this movie as a whole but there are actually a few really great scenes in it. My favorite is the part where Jane is dancing with the dorky blonde guy and Thomas kind of just appears in the dance out of no where. I swear it took my breath away. And the end is just so sad and sweet at the same time. How can one movie be so good and so bad at the same time.
