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

In its indulgence of extremes, Bedknobs and Broomsticks becomes unwieldy, but also capable of reaching unforgettable heights. 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: 2.5/4 -- The Disney organization is worst when it makes "family entertainment" and best when it sticks to pure, simple, charming fantasy. Full Review
Chicago Sun-Times
Oct 24, 2004
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

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

Product Description:

In England during World War II, three young kids are forced to evacuate their home and move in with the eccentric Eglantine Price (Angela Lansbury). At first the youths are unhappy--until they discover that Eglantine is studying to become a witch. Eglantine teaches the children magic, using her new powers to take them on fantastic, fun-filled adventures, all of which they experience on a flying bedframe. But when the neophyte witch decides to use her powers to help the Brits win the war, will she succeed...or will she just create more havoc' Robert Stevenson directs this delightful Disney film that mixes live action and animation splendidly.

Plot Synopsis:

BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS is a delightful Disney production that combines live-action and animated sequences. A novice witch aids the British forces during WWII with the help of her young sidekicks. Along the way, they travel to a mystical land inhabited by talking animals where they must take possession of an amulet that holds the key to defeating the bad guys.
