Highly Suspect Reviews: Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins is back and it’s like she never left., assuming you understand that she’s a Time Lord and has regenerated into Emily Blunt. Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) are all grown up with problems of their own. Michael is a widower with three children and through his own dunderheadedness is going to lose the family home to a conniving bank CEO (Colin Firth). But never fear, here comes Mary Poppins to whip the family into shape, sing, dance, hang out with Lin Manuel Miranda (who pretty much is playing the Dick Van Dyke chimney-sweep role this time around) and generally turn reality on its ass. But what did our crew of reviewers think? Listen to Chris, George, Frank, Ben, and Aaron turn into giddy little kids again.
