Critic Reviews of "Bedknobbs And BroommSticks"Chicago ReaderNovember 03, 2009
It's more sophisticated than the usual run of Disney product, but it lacks the inventiveness that could endow it with genuine charm.TIME MagazineNovember 03, 2009
The fantasy is earthbound, the score by Richard and Robert Sherman (who also wrote music and lyrics for Mary Poppins) is forgettable, the special effects lackadaisical.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
It is when the film [based on the book by Mary Norton] dives deeply into the realms of fantasy that it is most enjoyable.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Must all films for kids be so shoddy, though? The music is appalling.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
I suspect the movie will be something of a long, uninterrupted sit for the very children for whom it's intended, and an even longer one for those parents and guardians (both adults and teen-age) who will probably accompany them.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
The Disney organization is worst when it makes "family entertainment" and best when it sticks to pure, simple, charming fantasy.TheBluFile.comAugust 14, 2014
[Blu-ray Review] Some movies from childhood hold up when they are seen as an adult, and others do not, trapped only in the nostalgia of the time in which they were first watched. Recommended for fans, but temper expectations.EmanuelLevy.ComApril 03, 2012
Disney's multi-Oscar nominated musical is not as good as Mary Poppins to which it's often compared, but Angela Lansbury is well-cast and most of the visual effects, which won the Oscar, are impressive.Antagony & EcstasyDecember 15, 2010
A fun, fairly intelligent, unexpectedly witty example of cinema for children at a time when that genre was at one of its lowest-ever ebbsCommon Sense MediaOctober 01, 2010
Delightful Disney charmer may be too long for youngest.Film4November 03, 2009
It's a little uneven but at its best Bedknobs And Broomsticks rivals the joy and wonder of Mary Poppins.Empire MagazineNovember 03, 2009
Like Lansbury, the film has aged well and retains almost all of its magic.
