Below is the synopsis of "Mary Poppins," per Rotten Tomatoes.

"Practically Perfect In Every Way" Mary Poppins flies out of the windy London skies and into the home of two mischievous children. With the help of a carefree chimney sweep named Bert (Dick Van Dyke), the spirited nanny turns every chore into a game and every day into a "Jolly Holiday."

"Mary Poppins" holds a 100 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and the classic musical made over $102 million in lifetime gross at the box office. Julie Andrews won the Best Actress Oscar for her titular portrayal in 1965. Time Out wrote about the classic musical:

Compared to even 'sophisticated' juvenile fodder, the sheer exuberance of Disney's adaptation of PL Travers' children's classic should tickle the most jaded fancy. Indeed, the film can hardly contain itself with its catalogue of memorable songs, battery of dance routines, and strong supporting cast.

Below is the synopsis of "The Sound of Music," per Rotten Tomatoes

One of the most popular movie musicals of all time, The Sound of Music is based on the true story of the Trapp Family Singers. Julie Andrews stars as Maria, a young nun in an Austrian convent who regularly misses her morning prayers because she enjoys going to the hills to sing the title song. Deciding that Maria needs to learn something about the real world before she can take her vows, the Mother Superior (Peggy Wood) sends her off to be governess for the children of the widowed Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer). 

"The Sound of Music" holds a fresh rating of 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and the iconic musical made $158 million domestically at the box office. The musical won the Academy Award for Best Picture. New York Daily News wrote:

Appealing to the whole family and giving Julie Andrews a chance to sing and perform charmingly, it presents Christopher Plummer as Captain Von Trapp, a role that is sure to enhance the popularity of this fine actor.
