Classic Family Film - Magical and Moving - A Good Feeling Film
on 16 February 2017
I watched this as a child and fell in love with BERT! especially when he was the chimney sweep! I remember watching it every Christmas and it never seemed to get old or dated. Fast forward to last week when my 3 year old niece and I were browsing the films available on Amazon Prime Video. She kind of likes to just watch the trailers, and we spent an hour just doing that until we came to Mary Poppins. Apparently she had heard the song "Let's go fly a kite" and as soon as it started to play it was.. "Buy it, Buy it auntie LuLu, can we watch it now... can we?" So using some of my Amazon Promotional credit I purchased it! We both sat there transfixed. I was singing along to the songs, my niece was well impressed that I knew them. She joined in when we came to the Kite flying scene.... and then we watched it again and again. She actually fell sleep while Marry Poppins was singing " Stay Awake" which I thought was just adorable.
I am not going to tell you the plot of this film, it would just spoil it for the person who has yet to see it . I will say that it is a wonderful FAMILY film. Lots of "sing-along" songs, A lot of magic and Good Feelings... what more could you ask for in a family movie!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did x
