if it was any worse it might be funny,

This review is from: Mansfield Park [VHS] (VHS Tape)
please see this film before you buy it..because believe me you probably wont want to.
wobbly camcorder filming, echoing sound, some of the worst acting i have ever seen in a film, i find it impossible to imagine that this could possibly be a bbc film. the acting is so bad that its quite fascinating...youll find yourself showing this to friends to point out how dreadful it is. the only thing this film has is a superb story...it is a shame that nothing in the film does anything but make it a laughing stock.
it is unbearable that a story which is about the meaning of true delicacy and constancy should be undermined in this way.
silly wigs, overacting, meaningless affected speech, im not just being nasty here please believe me.
i think you will be sorely disappointed if u spend your money and expect to get the quality of a persuasion or pride and predjudice.
try the newer version .
