MARY Poppins Returns has won praise from critics and fans alike since its release last month, but fans have now spotted a major plot hole tying to the original film. Emily Blunt's Poppins appears to have forgotten one of her very specific terms of employment - which was originally revealed in the 1964 movie, where the titular character is played by Julie Andrews. Digital Spy have pointed out that both versions of Mary Poppins are adamant that they don't work on the second Tuesday of the month, however, the newer adaptation appears to break that rule in Mary Poppins Returns. This is made clear when Mary takes John, Annabel, and Georgie Banks to see her eccentric cousin Topsy [Meryl Streep] after they break their mother's Royal Doulton bowl. During that visit, Topsy insists that she can't fix the bowl because it's the second Wednesday of the month - and on second Wednesday's her world "turns turtle". Eagle-eyed viewers have pointed out that if the Banks children visit Topsy on the second … [Read more...] about Mary Poppins Returns fans spot major plot hole about her job – but did you see it?

Mary Poppins may be practically perfect, but it looks like she's not in every way. The Disney sequel is flying at the box office and fans have raved about the homage to the 1964 original starring Emily Blunt, but that hasn't stopped them catching a plot hole. The sequel takes care to take into consideration the Julie Andrews' movie, down to the quirks of the magical nanny, but it looks like one was overlooked. DigitalSpy has pointed out that Mary doesn't work on the second Tuesday of the month. In fact, she insisted upon it in the first film. But in the sequel Mary Poppins works on the second Tuesday. Gasp! When John, Annabel and Georgie Banks break the Royal Douton Bowl, Mary says she'll take them to see Topsy, her cousin, in the morning to get it fixed. When they get to the shop Topsy says she can't fix it because it's the second Wednesday of the month and that's when her world turns "turtle". So if it's Wednesday, then the day before was Tuesday and Mary was working. Has the … [Read more...] about Mary Poppins Returns’ major plot hole shows she’s not practically perfect

Nothing ruins a movie like a great big plot hole. While fans will allow films to bend the truth a little in the name of entertainment, some plot issues are enough to totally derail films and take viewers right out of the action. It might sound trivial to question the logistics of films like Toy Story and Star Wars, especially when they contain talking toys and aliens, but sometimes mistakes can cause the magic to be lost a little. It's not all bad, though. Others are so ridiculous that they can be great fun to spot — making movies even more enjoyable. These are some of the biggest movie plot holes of all time, from spectacular sci-fi to classic comedies.
