Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls - start your engines. You're about to take an incredible ride with one of the most wonderful family films of all time!
Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has never looked or sounded better. With its clever tunes (including the Oscar -nominated* title song), marvelous cast and enchanting storyline, this delightful family film is lots of fun and simply "toot sweet" to pass up! Dick Van Dyke stars as eccentric inventor Caractacus Potts, who creates an extraordinary car called Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It not only drives but also flies and floats as it leads him, his two children and his beautiful lady friend, Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes), into a magical world of pirates, castles and endless adventure.
What a classic movie this is and one that after years of watching is still such a fun movie to watch and enjoy.
Potts is a single father to his two children who is also an inventor. At their begging he buys an old car that is set to be demolished and starts to give it a makeover. He also runs into Trudy, the daughter of a wealthy sweet factory owner. Things go awry with one of Potts lolly inventions, and then when spending the day at the beach Potts, his two kids and Trudy end up on a fantastic journey.
If you like a movie full of fantasy and great musical numbers then this is a great movie, "You're my little pookie pie and you're my teddy bear" assuming I got the lyrics right is by far my favourite song in the entire movie and I can't help but sing along every time. My kids found it to be a little slow paced the last time it was on TV but they have become fans of some older films recently so I think that now may be the perfect time to dust this off an play it again.
A fun, family movie that is more than worth the watch.
