Quotes

David Copperfield: That is what he is, this fellow; a cold blooded, calculation fortune hunter, without honour, scruple, or mercy.
Mr. Edward Murdstone: [overturns the table they are sitting at] Be silent!
David Copperfield: I have been silent too long! I will be silent no more!
Miss Jane Murdstone: Edward... come away
Mr. Edward Murdstone: Hold your tounge!
David Copperfield: He bullied, and harried my poor, weak mother into her grave!
Mr. Edward Murdstone: Yes, she was weak. But it was not I who preyed upon her weakness, it was here own SON, who drained her of the strenght he needed with his wild behaviour and importunate demands!

TNT is capable of better, much better - so why this?!
11 December 2000 | by (MO, USA) – See all my reviews

Having seen other adaptations besides reading the book, I kept watching this travesty in hopes that it would get better, but it didn't. Americans need to keep their accents and not "fake" an English one. Networks need to remember that there is too much competition to become sloppy in adaptations or becoming too creative with the "Classics". This drives away viewers who spend their dollars on advertisers' products and what credibility does it give them for future productions. David Copperfield was totally lost in this production and never grew, never matured. Dora was delicate and somewhat spoiled in past productions, not this simpering, whiny, pathetic creature that you wanted to slap into life. Agnes was a mere shadow of what she has been in the past, just enough backbone to recognize her character. Sally Field was disappointing as she tried to fake an English accent as Aunt Betsey Trotwood. Her past works have shown she is capable of an award winning performance, but not this time. Anthony Andrews' character of the mean stepfather became cartoon-ish as we saw his character reappearing in the story. His part was written as if the screenwriter wanted to give the stepfather his comeuppance. Don't waste the time to even schedule the VCR if you missed it, because there wasn't anything to miss.
