Mary Poppins was always one of my favorite movies, especially the part where Mary dives through the sidewalk art and takes the kids riding through the park on carousel ponies that leapt off the merry-go-round. And aspects of this photo remind me of that scene — specifically, the big poley thing, the frills, and the expression on Eva Mendes’ face, which totally matched my own the first time I ever saw the kids hopping around on hypo-allergenic horses on sticks:

Unfortunately for Eva, nothing else is particularly magical here, unless you count her delightful ability to make a dress out of old garters and hair elastics. However, Dick Van Dyke could sweep a mean chimney with that skirt, and that could lead to some sexy fun, as all things with Dick Van Dyke usually do.
