There is only one word that comes close to accurately describing the enchanting Mary Poppins, and that term was coined by the movie itself: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Even at 2 hours and 20 minutes, Disney's pioneering mixture of live action and animation (based on the books by P.L. Travers) still holds kids spellbound. Julie Andrews won an Oscar as the world's most magically idealized nanny ("practically perfect in every way," and complete with lighter-than-air umbrella), and Dick Van Dyke is her clownishly charming beau, Bert the chimney sweep. The songs are also terrific, ranging from bright and cheery ("A Spoonful of Sugar") to dark and cheery (the Oscar-winning "Chim Chim Cher-ee") to touchingly melancholy ("Feed the Birds"). Many consider Mary Poppins to be the crowning achievement of Walt Disney's career--and it was the only one of his features to be nominated for a best picture Academy Award until Beauty and the Beast in 1991. --Jim Emerson

Julie Andrews is simply marvelous as is her supporting cast: Dick Van Dyke as Bert; Glynis Johns as Mrs. Banks; David Tomlinson as Mr. Banks; not to mention Ed Wynn as Mary's laughing uncle.
Modern attention spans being what they are, and since this IS a standard-length movie and not a video, I wouldn't introduce this film to very small children. Give them a few years until they can appreciate the witty lyrics and the plot. But "Mary Poppins" certainly deserves a home on every family's video shelf.
