A DELIGHT of a film! Fantastic performances abound, especially from Thompson and Hanks. Clichéd, but well done and very moving.

To Mike... It's kind of inferred that she would end up liking Walt Disney... and I think the film was actually made to show that it wasn't that easy to convince PL Travers, not to show otherwise... or show another ending where she still didn't like him, which we knew it was the case because if that wasn't there wouldn't be any Mary Poppins. I found the film to be enchanting and Emma Thompson was really hilarious. I agree with Richard.

I am usually in agreement with Richard in his reviews. Here is a rare time where I could not disagree with him more. This movie is just plain terrible. Though it is based on a true story, this movie seemed to be made up. From the second I saw PL Travers and what a dislikeable person she is I knew she would change her mind and realize Walt Disney is not such a bad guy after all. How many times have we seen that before. A terrible waste of a great cast. I thought "The Lone Ranger" was better. I said that and I don't regret it.
