5.0 out of 5 stars Mary Poppins with muscles!, 10 April 2007
This review is from: To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar [DVD] (DVD)
Who would ever have thought that Patrick Swaze would make such a perfect (if muscular!) Mary Poppins!

This film is not quite as good as Priscilla Queen of the Desert, which also deserves 5 stars, but it's still a fun romp in its own right.

A film doesn't have to be depressing, angst-ridden or "worthy" to be worth seeing. This film makes my family care about the characters and laugh their socks off. It leaves us all feeling the better for having seen it. Last night, my 12 year old son punched the air and shouted "Yes!" as Mr Swaze sorted out an abusive husband. It works for a wide audience.

It is, of course, also an indisputable truth that Julie Newmar is the greatest ever Catwoman...

Why not see it for yourself?
