Entertainment Reviews:

Premiere - 04/01/2004
"[T]he Poppins character was played to comely perfection by squeaky-clean Andrews, who won an Oscar."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/17/2004
"[Andrews] openmouthed, eyebrow-cocked expressions became perfect embodiments of Mary's cheeky charm."
Empire - 03/01/2008
"Mixing real-life action with animation to charming effect, it is still Julie Andrew's iconic performance that remains this film's cheeriest pleasure..."

Product Description:

A magical, musical nanny brings a breath of fresh air into the stuffy Banks household in turn-of-the-century England. Overstuffed with gaiety, this children's fantasy is filled to the brim with wonderful dance numbers and outrageous songs (such as the seemingly unpronounceable "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"). The film's seamless blending of live-action with animation was a marvel in its day. This is Andrews' film debut and Darwell's last film appearance. Academy Award Nominations: 13, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best (Adapted) Screenplay. Academy Awards: 5, including Best Actress--Julie Andrews, Best Original Score, Best Song ("Chim Chim Cher-ee"), Best Editing, Best Special Visual Effects. Gold Collection Edition features "Hollywood Goes to a World Premiere."
