    • Excerpt: a thing of beauty, intelligence, and social consciousness that evokes not just a sense of wonder, but also of infinite the possibilities that changing a point of view can provide
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: The Mary Poppins that has returned…is also tarter, vain and a little bit bawdy. Emily Blunt is so perfect in this role, the film’s only failings occur when focus shifts away from her.
  • David Crow @ Den of Geek
    • Excerpt: Led by a luminous Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns is obviously engineered to revisit, and frankly remake, the 1964 classic where every child learned the words to “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” but the end result nevertheless feels handcrafted and miraculously sincere.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: It’s a servicable romp, but lacks the imagination that made the original such an instant classic. However, Emily Blunt is undeniably terrific.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then Mary Poppins Returns has just paid the original film the most awesome compliment imaginable.

  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: More remake than sequel, Mary Poppins Returns does not usurp the original, but the check-in on Cherry Tree Lane feels a full order of magnitude lesser in majesty and material. Most audiences will appreciate a return to the world of nanny magic, but that feeling of less is actually less hovers nearby. However, there is something about that nanny…
  • Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
    • Excerpt: Mary Poppins Returns is the grand finale to the “movie we need right now” festival of 2018!
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Stepping into the role of Mary Poppins seems like a daunting task, but Blunt is undoubtedly up for the challenge.
  • Eddie Pasa @ DC Filmdom
    • Excerpt: For the 2 hours and 10 minutes of Mary Poppins Returns, we’re brought back to a place where the little things about humanity take center stage. It’s a more grounded, tangible experience elevated by the whimsy of Mary Poppins, kept down to earth by Michael and his children’s realistic worries, and buoyed by fantastic performances across the board.

    • Excerpt: Mary Poppins Returns’? ?might be an average, sluggish sequel but Emily Blunt is simply just perfect for the role.
