Movie Critics
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "MARY POPPINS RETURNS has boundless creativity, stacks of charm and not a cynical second..."
Empire Staff (12 Dec 2018, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[T]his lovingly crafted production delivers both nostalgia and novelty. Ideally cast from top to toe, and graced by tuneful songs from Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman that genuflect to the invaluable contributions of the Sherman Brothers on MARY POPPINS, this is a charmer only cynics could resist."
David Rooney (12 Dec 2018, )
RogerEbert.com
"The cast puts on a good show..."
Monica Castillo (19 Dec 2018, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 5 -- "In his big-screen debut, Miranda has charm to spare and throws in a little rap during a number called A COVER IS NOT THE BOOK."
Peter Travers (18 Dec 2018, )
The Atlantic
"The new movie is, like the one that came before it, a meditation on childhood, full of whimsies and mysteries and suspended disbeliefs, all of them grafted onto the sooty cityscape of London."
Megan Garber (3 Jan 2019, )
Total Film
5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his Poppins delivers plenty of modern verve by way of execution....Blunt offsets her brusque kindness with mysteries."
Jane Crowther (12 Dec 2018, )
Variety
"[I]t’s a rapturous piece of nostalgia -- a film that devotes itself, in every madly obsessive frame, to making you feel happy in the guileless way a movie still could back in 1964."
Owen Glieberman (12 Dec 2018, )
