Review: Chitty Chitty bang Bang

The movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is set in England during the early 20th century. Released in 1968, the story takes place in a picturesque village where the eccentric inventor Caractacus Potts (played by Dick Van Dyke), and his children ( Jeremy and Jemima) reside. The idyllic English countryside with its rolling hills, quaint cottages, and charming villages serves as the backdrop for the magical adventures that unfold in the film. The movie also features scenes set in the whimsical and fantastical land of Vulgaria, a fictional European country ruled by the tyrannical Baron Bomburst.

Caractacus Potts is a widower, and the children's mother is no longer alive. While the details of her passing are not explicitly mentioned in the movie, her absence is felt throughout the story, adding a layer of poignancy to the family dynamics. Caractacus Potts' love for his children and his deep connection to them drive the heartwarming and adventurous tale of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Despite the loss of their mother, the Potts family remains close-knit and supportive of each other as they navigate the magical and whimsical journey together.

What I loved about this movie: its ability to keep a smile on viewers’ faces, delightful music, love in a family facing hard times together, a brilliant father and his curious children, and impossibly adorable inventions.

Some of the most famous songs from the film include "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," "Truly Scrumptious," "Toot Sweets," and "Hushabye Mountain," all of which have become iconic tunes associated with the movie.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a family-friendly film that does not contain explicit nudity, language, or violence. It is suitable for viewers of all ages and highly recommended! I give this musical family drama 5 out of 5 stars!
