Well, S&S2 did include Margaret, but it got her age wrong - she is 13 in the novel. S&S3 should get credit for being the first adaptation to include Margaret AND present her appropriately.
I still dislike the scene with Willoughby overlooking the wedding, because I think it makes him appear too sympathetic. I completely agree with you that John Dashwood isn't as greedy as Fanny, though, and I think that S&S2 could have made an effort to show that Marianne is NOT marrying for money; as it is, the wedding scene at the end and nearly all of the events leading up to it make it appear that she is merely settling for marriage to an extremely dull man who happens to be able to provide her with wealth and security.
