Oh I hadn't noticed til now what the shadows on the cover of the movie showed. How cute. You know it should have been a bankable thing having Emma Thomposon and Tom Hanks in the movie, for they're good, so good they're great, in most anything they are in. She has great legs and the most amazing voice, and he, well he fills out his suit in this one, and does a great job of Disney. Just somehow the magic is missing, that little spark that makes a movie shine, that special moment. Maybe for me, I've never enjoyed Mary Poppins, the movie always grated on me when I had to sit through it, as I never understood what it was all about.
Also the Aussie scenes didn't seem especially Australian, it all screamed Hollywood back lot pretending to be beautiful Brisbane which I am sure it was.
