Spike the cat movie reviews: Jane Austen
Spike asked me to help him type this:
"'Northanger Abbey', Jane Austen's last novel published, but the first she wrote.
I dunno, some people, for example women like the one I live with, eat this stuff up with a spoon: the castles, the gentlemen on horses, the little dances and tea parties. The guy I live with seems to like the costumes, with the heaving bosoms. I don't get it. Big yeawn!
This movie was more of the same country houses and young heroines and heroes, and I admit at first all the scheming was dull and irritating. Luckily the plot moves on to murder and intrigue, and I enjoyed myself quite a bit in the end. I'd say 7 little toes out 10."
