It has been many years since I last watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and it was really fun getting reacquainted with Caractacus Potts and Truly Scrumptious! I loved the sing-a-long option because it gave me the chance to finally figure out half the words to some of the songs :). All three of my kids, and my mom, watched this movie with me and thoroughly enjoyed it. My boys thought the movie was pretty hilarious and they loved the flying car. Olivia loved Truly Scrumptious and her pretty dresses. Of course. 

The film is obviously a classic and worth watching. It looks amazing in Blu-ray and the special features really make it worth buying. I loved "Remembering Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with Dick Van Dyke" and my kids loved the “Chitty Chitty’s, Bang Bang, Driving Game”. 

The special features alone can keep a person entertained for quite awhile!

And just for fun here is my daughter saying "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"... she cracks me up.

Thanks so much to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment for sending me a copy of this film to review.
