It's more sophisticated than the usual run of Disney product, but it lacks the inventiveness that could endow it with genuine charm. Full Review

It is when the film [based on the book by Mary Norton] dives deeply into the realms of fantasy that it is most enjoyable. Full Review

Must all films for kids be so shoddy, though? The music is appalling. Full Review

Rating: B- -- Disney's multi-Oscar nominated musical is not as good as Mary Poppins to which it's often compared, but Angela Lansbury is well-cast and most of the visual effects, which won the Oscar, are impressive. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- A fun, fairly intelligent, unexpectedly witty example of cinema for children at a time when that genre was at one of its lowest-ever ebbs Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- It's a little uneven but at its best Bedknobs And Broomsticks rivals the joy and wonder of Mary Poppins. Full Review

The fantasy is earthbound, the score by Richard and Robert Sherman (who also wrote music and lyrics for Mary Poppins) is forgettable, the special effects lackadaisical. Full Review
