Chitty Chitty Bang Bang {Review}


 
 
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is back and on Blu-ray -- Available NOW!



Film Synopsis:

 
"Based on the children’s book Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car by Ian Fleming, the film tells the story of an eccentric professor (played by Dick Van Dyke) who invents wacky machinery, but can't seem to make ends meet. When he invents a revolutionary car, a foreign government becomes interested in it, and resorts to skullduggery to get their hands on it. The all-time family classic evolves from there and viewers are taken on a magical ride with the professor and loveable motorcar.

What SMS Thought:
 
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a wonderful family classic full of music and adventure!  Caractacus Potts, played by Dick Van Dyke, is a single father of two adorable children.  He spends most of his time inventing things, one of which is a car that, incredibly, drives, flies, and floats!  This car takes Potts, his two children, and their lady friend, Truly Scrumptious, on a wonderful adventure to a land filled with castles, toys, and pirates, but also where all the children in the land have been banned!  But no need to fear, all turns out well in the end.  The music in this movie is also enchanting!  My only warning is that the songs get stuck in your head and you find youself singing them later throughout the day.  Overall I give this movie two thumbs up.  It would be a great choice for a fun family movie night!
