I love this movie. True, it is different from the book, but it is wonderful in it's own way. From Mary Poppins' magical umbrella, to Bert and his chalk drawings, a to Mr Banks at the bank, Mary Poppins is a fun-filled movie, with magical adventures that I can watch over and over without tiring. I think that the differences from the book give it a chance to be it's own thing. I love the bird lady, and Mary Poppins' sass as well as kindness and smarts. She's obviously not just a pretty face. Julie Andrews is one of my favorite actresses, and the role of Mary Poppins was played so well, that whenever I see another movie with Julie Andrews in it, I think of this one. Mary Poppins has definitely been my favorite since I was about... Say ten? With the music, the gorgeous scenes, and the fun characters I feel that if it is not already, this movie should be considered to some extent, a classic.
