Extremely long words aside, I do not have a super-fragilistic opinion on the 1964 Disney classic “Mary Poppins“. Frankly, it was so far removed from my reality, that I never “warmed up to” or found anything relate-able in this movie. You see, it takes place in London, and involves a nanny. Whereas, I did not live in the UK and my only Nanny is TV.
No, this was not a movie for me. This was a movie to keep the other kids occupied while I went on adventures. Ha!
You can’t go wrong, showing this G-rated classic to children. However, it sure won’t keep little boys out of trouble.
