Critic Reviews for Mary Poppins
There is nothing wrong with good, clean fantasy, if there is some sort of explanation to make it more than just a succession of camera tricks.
Mary Poppins is a picture that is, more than most, a triumph of many individual contributions. And its special triumph is that it seems to be the work of a single, cohesive intelligence.
As the magical nanny who turns life upside down for her charges in Edwardian England, Julie Andrews maintains a stiff upper lip that dries out some of the Disney schmaltz.
Van Dyke's energy is prodigious (especially when he leaps around with a gang of sooty chimney-sweeps on the London rooftops) and the songs are classics.
Whether the movie's message is Travers-approved or not, the emphasis on joy and empathy proves heartening, even today.
Audience Reviews for Mary Poppins
Commanded by the charming, elegant Julie Andrews (who won Best Actress for the role) Mary Poppins serves as a benchmark of Walt Disney's timeless classics with its colorful musical numbers, wholehearted tones and vibrant joy. 4.2/5
One of Disney's best musicals to date, with a good story to follow as well. A real classic.
A magical Disney film that marvels us with fantastic special effects, a splendid combination of live action and animation, an unforgettable performance by Julie Andrews and a great amount of memorable musical numbers that stay in our heads and make us hum them for hours after the movie is over.
