    For a family film, the content is way too sexual that was disturbing to an extent, but if you can ignore that it was a great film filled with lots of fun, a perfect fairytale really.

    with all the commercails and threatical trailers swamping the television screen i was a sucker to think for a moment this movie had the ‘IT’ factor of being a great family movie.
    wrong, nanny mcphee didn’t show much strength and her lessons were not shown clearly.unless you conider tormenting bratty children with cough syrup thats past its experation date. colin firth picked a horrible script.

    nanny mcphee, even though the title is much too obvious to have as a movie title, this film is still enjoyable for people of all ages. emma thompson is hideously transformed into nanny mcphee, which will make the kids squirm with laughter. the children, thomas sangster especially, are excellent actors.

    Oh, boo-freaking-hoo. “It’ll scare children”?! GOOD. Toughen those kids right up. Back in the 1980’s, we were raising our eight-year-olds on “RoboCop”, “Predator” and “Die Hard.” Hell, my parents let me watch “The Matrix” when I was FIVE. Suck it up, babies. “Nanny McPhee” isn’t a great movie, but it’s a good one, and shouldn’t be avoided for “the sake of the children.” You know what’s worse for your kids than scary movies? BAD ones.

    My first impression when I saw Nanny McPhee was…ew. Despite Mcphee’s horrid look, the movie is really great. Its starts off with an excellent beginning, and continues that excellence until the end of the movie. I found the scenes where the kids talk about how much nannies they made go crazy a bit silly, but hey, they’re kids. The British voices are a bit hard to follow, but other than that, Nanny Mcphee is a good movie.

    While it borrows a lot from “Mary Poppins” and it may not seem entirely fresh at first, “Nanny McPhee” manages to shine through most of its flaws, featuring good performances and being undeniably sweet.

  • Jeanette DMay 3, 2013Reply

    Watched Nanny McPhee in horror with my 7-year old daughter yesterday; can such gender stereotypes really still be around???; Very ugly Nanny gets magically prettier as children are more and more well behaved; plain, virtuous maid gets “Eliza-make-over” and beating “vulgar and evil”, i.e. confident & sexually voracious widow to win heart of “Mr Darcy-dad” (literally).

  • Vincent WJune 2, 2013Reply

    An exceptionally good film with an all-star cast. This film has Emma Thompson, Colin Firth, Thomas Sangster, Derek Jacobi, and Imelda Staunton (Professor Umbridge).

    The soundtrack is done by Patrick Doyle and is truly inspired.

    Even the cast members who don’t play a very big role int he film are absolutely superb. The kids are amazing, the aunt is really good, and the creepy lady is very good as well.

    The costumes are spot on and the sets are perfect as well.

    Really just about every single component of this film was perfectly executed.

    This film has a draw to viewers of all ages. The film has British accents. The film has EVERYTHING.

    SUMMARY: WATCH THIS FILM. Highly recommended!

    Even though it is a predictable children’s movie, it is an endless classic. It keeps you watching and doesn’t bore you to sleep. The thoughtlessness of it is what I like. No matter how long it’s been since I’ve watched it, I still can remember the movie very vividly.

    A charming fairy tail that is well written and aimed at the family audience. The Victoriana sets are a delight and full of fun making for a hilarious background. The actors are genuinely amusing and this comes out in the precarious sensibilities of the situations. Music is sensuous with the photography capturing the oddment of the characters well.

  • Michael ZNovember 24, 2013Reply

    The simplicity of the story comes much to the benefit of Nanny McPhee, and the permeating feeling of Matilda-meets-Mary Poppins is very effective. However, as the film gets going, its similarities to the latter become distractingly obvious. Additionally, the characters are problematically underwritten, and the performances are similarly underwhelming. And the children face their turning point early in the film, which leaves the eponymous character nothing to do by the halfway point but to occasionally tap her magical cane to invoke some sort of comically unnecessary plot convenience. From that point on, the plot simply falls into the lap of contrived, thrown-together narrative devices that stumble inexorably toward the disappointing climax and, eventually, its eye-rollingly asinine resolution.

  • Harry WNovember 30, 2013Reply

    Nannt McPhee didn’t have all that much surface appeal to me because I merely saw it as a childish comedic satire of Mary Poppins. But like the magical Nanny McPhee herself, looks can be deceiving.

    Nannt McPhee does follow the Mary Poppins concept very closely, being a story about a magical nanny sent in to help out a troubled family burdened by unruly children, yet she teaches them through a set of humorous punishment as opposed to joyful experiences. It’s a lot more realistic in that sense because it’s easier to teach a child through punishment than through reinforcement, and a humorous look at that is indeed an original concept.
    The main success of Nanny McPhee comes from its natural charm, since the atmosphere is gleeful and charmingly comedic, like an original Disney movie with contemporary visual qualities and a silly colourful production design.
    Nanny McPhee is more likely to appeal to the younger audiences, but it is in fact consistently entertaining due to a lot of its moral messages and cleverly scripted humour, but most of all the work of its talented cast.
    Emma Thompson of course has to be the appropriate standout of the audience, giving a charismatic lead performance as the titular Nanny McPhee with all the quirky comedic charm that is ideal for the character. Her work on the script assists her in characterising her perfectly, and she’s constantly a joyful presence for the screen to benefit from. She makes Nanny McPhee a delightful romp and one with all the entertaining comedic charm necessary to pass.
    And Colon Firth’s natural British charm is good which helps him find the ability to have a natural comedic chemistry with all the other cast members, and gives it another good name to hold to itself.
    And of all the juvenile cast members, the skills of Thomas Sangster are the strongest and most successfully humourous in combatting Nanny McPhee and creating a strong sense of chemistry between the two of them.

    Really, Nanny McPhee is childish, predictable and silly. But it’s never excessive in doing so but does it just right enough thanks to the charms of Emma Thompson.

    A funny film about a hideous nanny who makes 5 naughty children into 5 good children and she turns beautiful. Emma Thompson is brilliant in this film and I really enjoyed her acting and everyone else’s too. There are a lot of jokes in this film which made me laugh quite a bit. However I didn’t like Colin Firth in this film. I never really enjoy him or his acting I thought there was often a grin on his face throughout the sad moments in this film. But Nanny McPhee was still good, maybe not great but good enough to a lot of people.

    Nanny McPhee is a good family movie which is funny, charming and teaches morals. Its a lovely almost old fashioned tale which captures the imagination. Its colourful, creative and completely harmless. Its not all that satisfying for grown ups yet is bound to put a smile on a little ones face without a worry to the conscience. Overall an innocent little feel good movie which can be enjoyed on a rainy sunday afternoon.

    Story/Screenplay: (4/5) An overt “happy ending” type of story. It is original and fun to follow.

    Duration/Tempo: (4.5/5) At 1 hour and 37 minutes, it’s a shorter movie that feels short. Easy to watch.

    Cast & Crew: (4/5) Emma Thompson was near perfect as McPhee, but the child actors stole the show.

    Summary: (4/5) Like a good comfort food, this movie is easy to digest and is sentimental by nature. A thumbs up.

  • Dan BAugust 30, 2018Reply

    Emma Thompson would agree with me when I say that Nanny McPhee is no Mary Poppins. Nanny McPhee may be the third best Nanny movie ever made and that is a huge compliment. Mary Poppins is by far and away the best Nanny movie and one of the best movies ever made and second would be Mrs. Doubtfire. However, Nanny McPhee is a fantastic movie also. Some of the story, in particular the relationship between the father and his housekeeper, feels forced but the performances by Emma Thompson, Colin Firth and Angela Landsbury are phenomenal. Emma Thompson. Seems to dislike the comparisons to Mary Poppins and she vehemently states that the two characters are very different actually, and she is correct. However, the themes, the concepts and and many pieces are very Poppins like, but that is just part of the tapestry of Nanny McPhee. If you haven’t watched Nanny McPhee, you must, just do not compare it to Poppins or it will be underwhelming, but certainly worth a watch.

    Nanny McPhee

    Jones’s fatal attempts of creating a magical music number as Mary Poppins unfortunately fails on all levels in here. To what was supposed to play on props and create awestruck delightful moments with the kids, is instead left out dry and unexplored in here. This overly rotten out formulaic structure of the script is not only outdated but is so poorly conceived that it doesn’t stand on its own grounds, it contradicts its own nature. The mythical aspects of the storyline that was supposed to attract the viewers, seems like is pretentious and a metaphor gone wrong case.

    The reasons and concept may have a heart but that heart isn’t pumping at all for either the viewers or the characters. The result is pure Sunday morning venture, you have seen this morning before too and the plans that it has for you is something that you are not looking forward to. Having said that, it doesn’t suggest that there aren’t any good bits in here. The usual sketchy sequences between the kids and a nanny, the tactics used by bratty mischievous kids and the gags that leads to the bonding of the kids to a newer member of the family, somehow in its giddy nature works like a charm.

    Thomson as the nanny herself who also co-wrote the script, is a delight to watch, her caring nature with productive methods and impressive tricks up her sleeve, elevates the momentum and raises the bar of the feature. On the supporting cast, the younger cast has decently managed to stay on the track along with Firth as the man in charge and Macdonald as the driver, who are convincing on their roles. Nanny McPhee is the perfect gift for your kids but only up till its first half, the second half is a big old sobbing mess.

    A very fun and interesting story, a great childhood memory

    While not quite as whimsical as Mary Poppins or even this movie’s own sequel, Nanny McPhee does teach good life lessons and Emma Thompson makes the titular character her own rather than just being a Scottish carbon-copy of the classic Julie Andrews character. Also, hey look, it’s Newt from the Maze Runner movie trilogy.

    Childhood classic that I always loved way more than Mary Poppins.

    Glad I never saw this movie. Mary Poppins, it isn’t. A poor copy of Mary Poppins.

    This movie is nothing short of phenomenal with its haunting music, stunning visuals, superb casting, accomplished acting, and adorable children. A fresh new take on a classic concept and it succeeds marvelously.

    The naysayers clearly have no eye for cinematic art. I don’t see how this movie deserves a single rotten review.

    Despite its superficial resemblance to Mary Poppins, it has a completely different feel which lends it its own originality and evokes all the appropriate emotions from joy and sorrow to hope and love.

    This is a must-see and an jnstant classic.

    The children were so over the top horrid, the father and staff so useless, and Nanny McPhee’s methods so harsh I gave up after less than 30 minutes. I understand it’s supposed to get better, but the first half hour was so awful I had enough by then. I can’t imagine a young child not having nightmares.

    Nanny Mcphee seems like a movie from another time when the story was the main focus. Not surprising since it is based on the beloved fairy-tale books about Nurse Mathilda. That’s not to say that the visuals weren’t great. On the contrary the sets and effects served to enhance what is an appealing and compelling work of art. Emma Thompson is mesmerizing as the title character. Despite her initial grotesque appearance you could sense that there was more to her than meets the eye. By the time the movie ends you don’t want her to leave.
