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

I've seen better

This David Copperfield version was alright

The best version ever is the 1999 BBC version of David Copperfield. All I can say is that the oh so cute, Daniel Radcliffe as David Copperfield is just so adorable.

The only person that bothers me is the older David Copperfield.

Everyone else is perfect especially, Uriah Heep (ooh! very perfect and creepy), Dame Maggie Smith as Aunt Betsy is even better than Sally Fields!

I recommend the BBC version than this version
