Crazy Credits

There is a special thanks to Jay Leno in the credits. According to Lin-Manuel Miranda, "I asked about this when I saw that! Apparently there is a car sound effect from the 1930's that they could not replicate, and someone realized Jay Leno had the car they needed to record the sound effect." See more »

This Mary is more like the book.
20 July 2019 | by MolongirlSee all my reviews

Have finally caught up with this and enjoyed it thoroughly. The only reason I've not scored it higher is for the song in the Music Hall, too sleazy for Mary Poppins and a flatness and wordiness of some of the other songs. But others were light hearted and catchy and beautifully done. I never liked the Mary Poppins books, she lied and was way too weird. I enjoyed the Julie Andrews/Disney version, much more likeable. Emily Blunt based her Mary much more on the book but happily also managed to make her more likeable. I just wish someone would help Disney song writers realise that people enjoy good melodies and don't need loooong songs that are too wordy. Plus when doing a movie for children keep it clean and good. The sleaziness of that 1 particular song was so out of step with Mary and the whole tone of her story.
