Being a fan of Mary Poppins for almost 50 years (I was an usher in a theater that showed it for over 6 months straight) I loved this film. It is full of laughs, a great story-line and even may bring you to tears toward the end. Superb acting!

Delightful if a bit contrived

'Mr. Banks' is a lovely, entertaining and touching film, even if a tad contrived. (It's pure Disney, after all!) While my top pick among Oscar-contending films this season remains PHILOMENA (with Judi Dench), this is a very fine film.

Lovely movie. I did not know any of the history. Now I want to see Mary Poppins..soon. It has been 30 yrs and I only saw it once. Thank you for making this possible.

Saving Mr. Banks

A much deeper story and film than I expected. The script was written to perfection, and the acting by all, particularly by the three at the top, was truly remarkable. I was completely taken in by it all. A five star performance that left you sorry it had to come to an end.

Enjoyable movie

I thought this was a very interesting and enjoyable. Remembering seeing Mary Poppins in my youth, and loving the penguin sequence, it interested me in knowing the author didn't want anything animated. I've never read any of the books so really hadn't thought of the author. Since seeing the movie last night, I've googled her and found out that the movie cleaned her up considerably. As adults, with a teen-aged daughter, we found the movie enjoyable as well as amusing in certain scenes. I think it would be too intense for younger children. One muttered swear word, other than that considerably clean.
