You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
An eccentric professor 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 skulduggery to get their hands on it.

i want dick van dyke to sing me to sleep and tell me everything's going to be alright
Mops the floor with Doctor Dolittle, thanks to the living doll sequence, an awesome scene with a blimp hooking a toiletless outhouse on a rope and flying it around potential-hundreds of feet in the air while we watch the crazed buffoon inside whimsically dancing as though he won't die if he falls out the swinging door, and a musical duet where a baron tries to kill his wife while she nervously shrugs off the attempts (which include ax-wielding armor, a trap door, bladed wooden edges falling from the ceiling, and strangling her with her own hair braids). And any moment where Van Dyke dances, you at least see some skill at work. Yet, it's also a considerable disappointment that the…
Such a classic. You've not had a childhood if you didn't see this and be terrified of the childcatcher.
Movie #1 in Scavenger Hunt #17: August 2016.
Task #18: A film with only repeated words in the title!
The Sherman Brothers really had a great gift for writing good melodies and playing with words, and their work in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is no exception.
The movie itself is a fun watch.
I thought the movie was a little too long and it had bits that just were too silly for my taste (the part with the spies and the ship). But overall I enjoyed it.
The performances from the main cast are perfect and bubbly and the scene with the whisltes in the candy factory and the scene with the "living dolls" are really funny and good and worth the watch.
I wanted this movie to be over toot sweet
It’s one of the paradoxes of movie business that the movies designed expressly for children are generally the ones that frighten them most. I have never heard children screaming in fear at any of those movies we’re always told they should be protected from as they screamed at BAMBI and DUMBO. Bambi’s mother is murdered, Dumbo’s mother is goaded to madness and separated from Dumbo; these movies really hit children where it counts. And here we are again in CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG, with its climax of a child-catcher (Robert Helpmann) who lures hungry children with promises of sweets, traps them right before the eyes of helpless adults, and throws them into prison. What a sweet bit of whimsy! This…

I have such a soft spot for this film, loved it when I was a kid and I still love it now.

The structures is so obscure and it is way to long.
35mm - Pictureville, Bradford
when Truly comes in at the beginning and judges all his inventions and parenting skills honestly same
This was my first ever viewing, in a cinema, with an audience, on a 35mm print and I was just completely won over.
I've never been a big one for musicals but seeing this on the big-screen mustered the emotion of the only musical I swear by - Carol Reed's Oliver!
Yes, its silly and pompous and all but its crammed full of British oddity, strangeness, and just so much love. It conjours memories I never formed; of going to the pictures with your family and losing yourself in the latest roadshow presentation in town. Surrounded by a surrogate family of a loyal festival crowd and the neighbours you've made friends with sitting next to over several days allowed me,…
It was alright. I remember liking it as a kid.
there's a thing where you adds 'in my ass' to the end of a movie title, so here are some…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
