We're loving the sing-a-long dvd version of this. It's a fabulous film. Not a re-make but a sequel to the Julie Andrews Poppins. A major difference is that the director gives Emily Blunt far more opportunities to add to the Mary Poppins. Great moment when she listens to the children's reactions to things she say and does or telling reaction shots that show a variety of emotion. Emily Blunt is great as are the whole cast. I took my six and eight year old boys to see it at the cinema and they got restless - it's long. But afterwards they asked questions about the Mum who'd died and we talked about loss and grief in terms of the film - the film handles it so well. And we love the songs. Had them on in the car and when we watched the dvd with sing-a-long on we were all singing. It's terrific.
