It's more sophisticated than the usual run of Disney product, but it lacks the inventiveness that could endow it with genuine charm.
The fantasy is earthbound, the score by Richard and Robert Sherman (who also wrote music and lyrics for Mary Poppins) is forgettable, the special effects lackadaisical.
It is when the film [based on the book by Mary Norton] dives deeply into the realms of fantasy that it is most enjoyable.
Must all films for kids be so shoddy, though? The music is appalling.
I suspect the movie will be something of a long, uninterrupted sit for the very children for whom it's intended, and an even longer one for those parents and guardians (both adults and teen-age) who will probably accompany them.
The Disney organization is worst when it makes "family entertainment" and best when it sticks to pure, simple, charming fantasy.
[Blu-ray Review] Some movies from childhood hold up when they are seen as an adult, and others do not, trapped only in the nostalgia of the time in which they were first watched. Recommended for fans, but temper expectations.
Disney's multi-Oscar nominated musical is not as good as Mary Poppins to which it's often compared, but Angela Lansbury is well-cast and most of the visual effects, which won the Oscar, are impressive.
A fun, fairly intelligent, unexpectedly witty example of cinema for children at a time when that genre was at one of its lowest-ever ebbs
Delightful Disney charmer may be too long for youngest.
It's a little uneven but at its best Bedknobs And Broomsticks rivals the joy and wonder of Mary Poppins.
Like Lansbury, the film has aged well and retains almost all of its magic.
An uneven, overlong and sometimes dull Disney movie that tries to follow in the footsteps of Mary Poppins, the main difference being that none of the songs is remotely memorable (in fact, most of the musical numbers are annoying) and the last act is just terrible.
Enjoyable, but not perfect Disney Live action feature, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a bit of a letdown considering that Mary Poppins was such a wonderful film. I'm not saying that this film is bad, but compared to others in the Disney canon, it'd just good, not excellent. However, this is nonetheless a good enough family film to watch with your family and is a film that people of all ages will surely enjoy. Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a fun film, one that could have been just as great as Mary Poppins, but sometimes it leaves a lot to be desired. I felt that at times the film tried too hard, and they tried to outdo previous films. Unfortunately it lacks that little something to really make this film special. Sure it has all the usual trademarks, but I just felt it was a step down from other Disney films. For what it is, it's still a very entertaining film for what it is, and is worth watching. Despite its flaws, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a fun, entertaining family film that Disney fans should enjoy. However, Mary Poppins was the better film, and it seemed that they tried to outdo that film with this one, but in doing so, you felt that the script at times was uneven and didn't deliver its full potential. The film could have been much better as a whole, but overall, it's still a fun little entertaining film that is a must see for the entire family. A good film for what it is, Bed knobs and Broomsticks is still a Disney classic, but in some areas, it does lack, and it's a bit disappointing. Luckily the cast saves this film and it's what makes this film worth seeing.
A fun adventure, with what was probably quite an impressive mix in 1971 of animation and Actors combined. Very drawn out and very dated now, although the Portobello Market scene was really enjoyable.
A childhoold favourite and a classic.
