The ONLY good part of the movie. I’ll never forgive the people who did this movie and The Lone Ranger for spoiling two of my childhood favorites.
Doesn’t look like a limerick to you? Try this:
A dozen, a gross, and a score
Plus three times the square root of four
Divided by seven
Plus five times eleven
Is nine squared and not a bit more.
THE FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCCCKKKKKKK
This is sheer genius
So, after seeing “Saving Mr. Banks” and getting swept up in the whole 50th Anniversary of Mary Poppins thing, it struck me that the first two movies I saw Julie Andrews in had her essentially portraying someone who comes in and saves the family. In both instances, the children are acting out to try and draw attention to themselves and in both cases, she gets the parent(s) to reconnect with their children. I understood that from Mary Poppins immediately. The idea that it was about “saving the children” never really occurred to me; I always saw it as getting the parents back in touch with their children. This was a point made in “Saving Mr. Banks” and I since I had never read the books, I was unaware of this. I guess my point is despite Mrs. Travers not being very happy about the movie, her point still got through. For whatever else you want to say about Walt Disney, I think he got this right.
