I broadly agree that the overall quality of the adaptation matters more than any individual casting choices, but I must admit I do see Lady Sybil as being quite a bit older (like maybe two decades). I'm fine with all the other choices, though, including Cheery.

It's pretty clear that whoever wrote that Cinema Blend article linked to above hasn't read any of the books. Also, this quote from the article gives me pause:

Quote:
In the effort to right the city’s wrong, Lady Sybil utilizes “chaotic vigilantism” as the means to do so.
As a calibration aid, I didn't like the adaptation of TCoM, thought Hogfather was OK, and really enjoyed Going Postal. I also thought that the adaptation of Good Omens was near-perfect.
