Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The sets are luxuriant, the songs lilting, the scenario witty but impeccably sentimental, and the supporting cast only a pinfeather short of perfection."
‑ , TIME Magazine
"Compared to even 'sophisticated' juvenile fodder, the sheer exuberance of Disney's adaptation of PL Travers' children's classic should tickle the most jaded fancy."
‑ , Time Out
"Whether the movie's message is Travers-approved or not, the emphasis on joy and empathy proves heartening, even today."
‑ Noel Murray, The Dissolve
"One of the best films ever produced by Disney, indeed one of the best American films of the 1960s... a fantasy of the most delicate touch and charming disposition."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"The film was deservedly a mega-hit."
‑ , Film4
"The grace of the effects makes it some kind of classic."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Van Dyke (exaggerated Cockney accent and all) and Andrews have great chemistry together, but it's really her interaction with the children and the magic of the story and the visual effects that charm audiences."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"The entire set was constructed indoors and it shows: the "outdoor" scenes are bathed in a dull gray light"
‑ Dan Jardine, Daily-Reviews
"With all the subtlety of Battleship Potemkin, a queue full of sour-faced old school nannies is shown blowing away into thin air to make way for the embodiment of modern female assertiveness."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"One of the greatest children's films ever."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Julie Andrews' first appearance on the screen is a signal triumph and she performs as easily as she sings, displaying a fresh type of beauty nicely adaptable to the color cameras."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"One of the great movie musicals and of that rare breed of deathless family entertainment that's guaranteed to transfix children, well beyond this, its fiftieth anniversary. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"World's coolest nanny celebrates family and fun."
‑ Common Sense Media Editors, Common Sense Media
"Arguably, it already seemed dated by the early 1970s, within a decade of its 1964 release. Yet still, somehow, the substantial charms of Mary Poppins live on."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"One of Disney's greats."
‑ Emma Cochrane, Empire Magazine
