Except Aunt Petunia is supposed to be on the scrawny side, and the actress, without being plump, wasn't really scrawny. But yes, Fiona Shaw played her pretty well.

Vernon was perfect, though. super grin
Yep. It's all in how they played the character that really counted though, that made up for any physical differences.

Definitely super grin. Perfect mix of annoyance and malice.

Best: I dont know if anyone will agree with me ,or if its only me who feels this way , but the trio as such really worked for me. I dont know if this was because I watched Ss before I started reading the books. But I really like how they worked together on screen. It was belivable.

I also like Harris Dumbledore and Dan. There is something between them that simply is abscent between Dan and Gambon Dumbledore.



Worst:
Now I myself am a proud Harry / Ginny shipper. I love their relationship in the book. But , oh dear me , how I hate them on screen. There is nothing going in between them but akward moments, fake stares and lack of spark.

I think in the film there was more chemestry between Dan and Evanna than with Bonnie. It simply did not happen. ( plus the relationship and how it was developed in the films really sucks )

Her hair was the wrong color, too. I think the text describes her as blonde, does it not?

Fact.

But appearances aside, the acting of the Dursley characters was spot on. I pictured more threats of physical violence from them toward Harry, but that's more on the screenwriters than on the actors/actress. Petunia can't throw a frying pan at Harry if the script doesn't say she did, and doesn't even give her a frying pan as a prop.

Agreement

Dudley was good too, when he sneers at Harry or bullies him.

I thought the Dursley's were well cast too and was sad when Richard Griffiths who played Vernon and then did the play Equus with Dan died recently as I liked him in The Pie in the Sky TV series as well.....
