Nanny McPhee

Nanny McPhee is the delightfully dark children's tale that revolves around the seven children of Mr. Brown (Colin Firth) who has recently become a widow. These dastardly little angels have made their father's life a nightmare as the children have driven away 17 previous nannies through devilishly clever pranks such as pretending to eat their youngest brother.

Unfortunately for the Brown family, their mother's strict aunt (Angela Lansbury) has been funding their royalist lifestyle which is about to end, unless the father finds a bride to marry within 30 days. Fortunately for the Browns, the strange looking Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson) comes to rescue with her cryptic message stating that I'll be here when you need me the most but will no longer be here when no longer need me.

This light comedic tale with a plethora of adult subtleties hidden throughout the movie tells the tale of these mischievous children and how Nanny McPhee, with her magic powers brings this family to unity. Delightfully directed by Kirk Jones with gorgeous 19th century English style-locales, this is one family movie that children of all ages will simply adore.

Presented in an aspect ratio of 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1, Nanny McPhee makes the perfect transition from the movie cinema to DVD with its exceptionally high quality video and audio.

For those that love extras, Nanny McPhee is no stranger to quality extras that include commentary by talented actress Emma Thompson, some extremely entertaining outtakes and a documentary of how Nanny McPhee came to be. Recommended.
