Nanny McPhee


Rated: PG

Running Time: 97 Minutes

Year: 2005

Boobs: Zero

One Sentence:  Sometimes a little kids movie is all you need.

I like Emma Thompson, I just do.  She is funny, talented, semi good looking, and seems to not take herself seriously which I always love.  If you can laugh at yourself then I can really get along with you.  So Emma Thompson dressed up in a horrid Nanny get up to portray the title role is going to automatically have me on my good side. 

I did not rent this one, Lib did.  But I did want to see it, so I was not complaining about watching it, but I won't tell my reader's that so don't tell them.  I don't want them to find out, that I wanted to see this kids movie.   It was written by Emma Thompson.  It only took her about 9 years to complete the screen play.  4 years longer than Sense and Sensibility.  If it took her twice as long it should be twice as good.  I don't think that is the case, but it really wasn't a bad movie. 

If you have kids, anywhere from like 5-10 I think this movie would be great for them.  It is cute, romantic, and fun.  It will keep you as parents entertained and should keep the kids paying attention and laughing as well.   Not too much different than a modern day Mary Poppins with a whole lot more kids, and no singing.  But even the recycled idea played out very well with the horrid looking Nanny McPhee.  Angela Landsbury is in it and she is awesome.  Even though a small part and Colin does his British thing as he always does.   I think if you have kids it's totally rentable and fun.
