        Overly sentimental crap that receives far more acclaim than it should. If the film never plays again, it would make my day.

        One of the best musicals ever!

        Hey, I know it's a 'Classic' but this is one musical I find a little too sickly sweet for my tastes! I'm a bigger fan of Wise's grittier 'West Side Story' but I can't fault the performances of Andrews and Plummer here. The latter in particular brings home the anger and fear that the Nazis represent to him and Austria as a whole and when the film tackles this theme then it nicely counterbalances the 'Doh, a Dear' and 'My Favourite Things' moments. The songs are all so well known now that you have to stop yourself from joining in but the most emotional moment for me is Plummer unable to continue with 'Eidelweiss' towards the end. Andrews' wide eyed innocence can grate sometimes but you can tell that she's 100% committed to the performance and it's not her fault that Maria is such an annoying goody goody! At almost 3 hours the film is way too long (I could have done without all the nun scenes!) but as a holiday staple it's up there with 'The Great Escape' and having grown up with it I can't bring myself to hate it.

        So absolutely adorable, it may be stagy (Cuz it's adapted from a stage production) but Julie Andrews provided the film with the additional energy. It's both fuzzy and hilarious at the same time, a must watch for the musical fans.
