Wouldn’t have missed this movie for anything. It does not reach the heights of the original Mary Poppins, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. From the beginning of the “Trip a Light Fantastic” number to the end, the movie is magical.

Very good for family. Rare clean movies anymore. Songs not as catchy as the first. Not like' a spoon full of sugar' and' supervalsfragalisticsupercalidosious' 50 plus years later and us old kids still remember those tones

So creative and magical! Literally all the feels and so so well done! I loved the subtle musical hints of the original hits like toupins a bag and let's go fly a kite! Emily Blunt is a wonderfully original Mary Poppins and beautiful! Lin Manuel is what leery dreams are made of! And Meryl Streep? Simply a hoot! 10/10 recommend!!

Thos movie was so much fun! I smiled the whole way through. The music, animation, acting, choreography, costuming, visual effects, etc were all so good! If you like the original, or like old-school musicals, I highly recommend it.

Even though the iteration of Mary Poppins doesn't quite capture the same magic as the original, it still encapsulates the same wonder and fun. Cast was great especially Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

It was a good blend of bringing some of the old but not mimicking or copying the old.

Hit all the right notes, had the whimsy I wanted. Wish the story had been slightly tweaked. I loved the A Cover is Not the Book Vaudeville number.

I found this sequel deeply slumping, not to mention unnecessary, unmagical and often unfunny. The misuse of talent is what slumped me the most.

Sticking close to the enduring classic's template while injecting plenty of freshness to give the follow-up its own distinct repro vitality, this lovingly crafted production delivers both nostalgia and novelty.

This is a big-hearted song and dance spectacle for the entire family in which everyone laughs at the same jokes.
