I know. I know I’ve used it before, but it’s the film that will always cheer me up. There isn’t really much more to say about that.
There are talking penguins, too much laughter, dancing chimney sweeps, Dick Van Dyke with that horrendous Cockney accent that you don’t even realise is a problem until you’re at least 20.
And the songs?! SO GOOD.
I’m actually really excited to see Mary Poppins returns, and think Emily Blunt is probably the closest thing to perfection (ie Julie Andrews) we could ever get.
Bert and Mary – the one relationship that never was.
