1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful, 2 April 2007
This review is from: Mansfield Park [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
I'm a huge fan of Jane Austen's books and of many of the film and tv adaptations. This adaptation, however, was so bad that I had to keep going out and making cups of tea - not in the commercial breaks. My toes were curling in embarrassment. The screenwriting was awful, the casting of Billie Piper was completely wrong, and there was far too much inappropriate running around and giggling.

The only actors I felt did well were the Crawfords. What a shame they weren't given a better production to work in.

Don't bother with this - save your money for the next two adaptations (Northanger Abbey & Persuasion) which are so much better.
