Critic Reviews for Mary Poppins Returns
It shifts a little nearer than its predecessor did to the spiky, peppery briskness of Travers's tales, and the whole enterprise exhales, as it should, an air of the politely mad.
Blunt is charmingly crisp and superior. Her winning performance makes this new nanny a keeper.
"Mary Poppins Returns" might have had a chance had the movie not tried to compete with the original in terms of scale. With 20 minutes of song and dance numbers cut, the movie really could have been better - not great, but better.
It's not just Blunt that's at the top of her game in this thoroughly delightful enterprise by director Rob Marshall and a crack team of artists devoted to both honoring a time-worn classic and finding something new to say. The visuals are lovely [too].
Emily Blunt proves herself a sparkling successor to Julie Andrews -with a lovely singing voice to match.
Blunt sings well and dances efficiently (she's best in a music-hall number in which she gets to play Cockney and show some sass), but she's a mite robotic. She makes you appreciate how well the part fit Julie Andrews.
