In the troubled Banks family, young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must help the family learn how to value each other again. Filled with timeless classics such as the Academy Award-winning "Chim-Chim Cher-ee," Mary Poppins can only be described as "supercalifragislisticexpialidocious!"
