David Tomlinson does his English Fred MacMurray act rather well, Miss Lansbury is as watchable as always and the children aren't too awful. It'll take a mint of money, but not mine.

[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.

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.

Has many moments rooted in movie magic, but there's also a whole lot of filler that brings the movie to a length that's more than bearable.

It's Disney, and it has magic in it, but for me it's a stretch to call the film 'magical.'

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.
