The first time I saw it, when it had just come out, I was greatly disappointed and would have given it a 2-star rating. Maybe 3. But watching it again, I liked it much better this time. There was good chemistry in the cast. While this actress was much too pretty to be obscure and almost invisible Fanny, I thought she did a pretty good job. She also manages to show her longing for Edmund throughout the movie, which is something neither of the other two version managed - especiall the weird Patricia Roz-something version. That one was just weird. I'm also glad that the cast had the right look. Edmund was PERFECT and so were the Crawfords. The changes in the plot were all acceptable. I especially loved the ending. It was cute.

I don't mind when they re-arrange the story abit however I was disappointed they choose to cut out Fanny's "visit home" to remind her of how well she has it living at Mansfield. I felt it took away from the story.

I think all of the movies in this Masterpiece Collection will satisfy the audience and the faithful Jane Austen fans. It was enjoyable, definately better the old BBC version which just seemed "lacking." The actor portraying Edmund does very well. I didn't really like the part given to Fanny in this movie - it wasn't the acting. Although the plot was sufficiently faithful for a movie adaptation, her character seemed altered. Fanny was supposed to be "invisible." During the movie, we should have been able to observe that she rarely speaks because her opinion isn't sought after or valued. She's ignored and not so confident as she sometimes appears in teh movie. Her sickness and general frailty are very important in explaining her demeaner and personality and her role in the family. Although we love P&P's Elizabeth for her "liveliness and wit", Fanny does not have those qualities, yet she still managaes to win us over with her innocence and high sense of morality. Though the movie was very important, it seemed to be missing some of the most important themes. And for this very reason Mansfield Park remains about the most difficult Austen work to adapt into a movie. It's still cute, romantic, and a fairly good representation.

It attempted to be faithful to the novel but fell miles short. I prefer the less faithful 1998 version with Frances O'Connor. It's much better cinematically. This version just did not convey the feeling and character of Fanny.

I am a great fan of Jane Austen's works. I am also a great fan of Mansfield Park. I loved the book and I just loved the movie. It was so refreshing and witty. It doesn't miss a beat to Jane Austen written novel!!

This film is a thoroughly entertaining version of Jane Austen's novel with both very good acting and a stylish setting. Billie Piper and Blake Ritson do well the dialogue and are generally enjoyable to watch. It is perhaps not the most closely scripted movie to the actually text, though.

I am a HUGE Jane Austen fan! I have many versions of the movies that have been made to depict her novels. Mansfield Park has always been one of my favorite novels and I have searched for a movie that does it justice. I finally found it in this movie. The actors that were chosen were perfect. The actor who play Fanny, Billie Piper, is exactly what I pictured her to be. A pretty girl but the longer you look at her the prettier she gets. Which is depicted through the movie. I also loved the role of Edward played by Blake Ritson. He gave the part a much needed sophistication. This a great movie. Especially for those girls nights.

I was highly disappointed in this adaptation when I watched it several weeks ago. The screenplay did not just cut scenes from the book, it COMPLETELY CHANGED some of them. I own the BBC version, and it is MUCH better -- if you want Mansfield Park, I suggest that one.

I like this adaptation of "Mansfield Park". Andrew Davies does a good job interpreting Jane Austen.

This movie was just ok. There are better versions of Mansfield Park.

And to be honest I like both this and the 1999 version. Same goes for Edmund. Blake reminds me of Adrian Brody. Billie as Fanny does a good job, bringing something to the character. I'm sure they're some changes that many who have read the book may not like. Sometimes it's good to have those, since well if it were word for word then it would be boring or just way too long. Though if done in such a way it could work. Anyway I like the supporting cast in this more than the 1999 one. Actually that movie was a little weird. I still recommend both versions though. You have to admit the ending to this including Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion are adorable.
