The child catcher freaked me the f out. Otherwise, it hovers between painfully whimsical and perverse. Show it to children you don't like.

This DVD was return to another library branch before it was due. Please contact Renfrew library because this DVD was returned before it was due

This is one of the first movies I got to go to the movie theater to watch. Loved the childhood memories it brought back. I enjoyed all the bonus features as well. Well worth the extra time.

This is a fun musical, but my son was greatly disappointed in how much it strayed from the Ian Fleming book by the same title which he greatly enjoyed.

Jemima Potts: Jeremy. It's not nice to peak. Jeremy Potts: I'm not peaking, I'm looking. Do you think they like each other? Jemima Potts: Of course they do. Jeremy Potts: Do you think they're going to get married?" Jemima Potts: has he kissed her yet? Jeremy Potts: Not yet. Jemima Potts: Will just as soon as he kisses her then they'll have to get married.

JEMIMA POTTS: JUST YOU WAIT TILL OUR DADDY HEARS ABOUT THIS. JERAMEY POTTS: HE'LL COME AND BLOW UP THE WHOLE CASTLE. BARONESS BUMBEST: TAKE THEM AWAY, TO THE TOWER. JERAMEY POTTS: YOU'RE A NASTY, HORRIED, MEAN OLD LADY. JEMIMA POTTS: AND VERY UGLY.

Jeremy Potts: If you put her in the fiery furnace you'll be guilty of murder. Junkman: Yea, and if you don't get out of it, I'll be guilty of two more murders. Now go on, out of it.

Jemima Potts: but what are you going to do with her? Junkman: I'll tell you what we're going to do with her. We're going to put her in the clapper, then we're going to crunch her up till she's one solid piece of metal, then we're going to put her in the fiery furnace, then we're going to melt her down till she' liquid ion. that's what we're going to do with her.

JEMIMA POTTS: MR. GOGGANS. YOU'RE NOT GONNA SELL HER, ARE YOU? JUNKMAN: OF COURSE HE'S GONNA SELL HER. WHAT DO YOU THINK HE'S RUNNING HERE, A CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND OR SOMETHING?

Mr. Potts: Thank you children. All these wonderful things. They're very precious. I'm afraid other people wouldn't appreciate them. Jemima: Why not daddy? Mr. Potts: Cause other people don't see things the way you do. come on now, let's go to bed. and don't you worry. things are going to come right somehow.

Jemima: Daddy? Mr. Potts: Why aren't you two asleep? Jemima: don't be sad daddy. It wasn't your fault Jeremy: it was all those mean old dogs. Mr. Potts: children, about the car. you see thirty shillings is pretty hard to come by. and when I do get any money I need it for my inventions. there isn't any left. Jemima: Jeramey and I've been thinking, it's our treasure chest. These things are onomiously valuable. Look, An Ivery Task, that must be worth a fortune. And Diamonds. And a golden crown. Jeramey: It's probably King Alfred's. Jemima. Of course it needs cleaning up a little. Take them daddy, you can sell them. Jeramey: And never mind about the car. you can spend it all on your inventions.
