I must admit at the outset of this that a serious part of my childhood is missing. For in all of my years and across the entirety of my childhood I have never watched the Disney classic “Marry Poppins” in its entirety. I may have watched a scene or two along the way and know a tid-bit of the songs but somewhere along the way I never quite copped on to Julie Andrews and Dick VanDyke dancing through the park accompanied by tap dancing penguins. So aside from the collective cultural conscience of the film I really didn’t know what to expect when going in to see “Saving Mr. Banks”, however I was not disappointed in the slightest afterwards.
