Jane Austen's Fight Club

In what's becoming a weekly feature, here's another hilarious literary-inspired viral video. The fake trailer combines Austen's favorite heroines -- Lizzy Bennett, Emma Woodhouse, the Dashwood sisters -- with Chuck Palahniuk's Tyler Durden. But don't worry: Even if you've never read Austen or "Fight Club," it's not spoiling anything that you haven't already seen in a few movie trailers.

And in this movie, I think I'd actually like Fanny Price!

Somehow I doubt that dear Jane would approve.

Words cannot express the awesome. And I totally agree with you about Fanny in this one!
