Product Description

Amazon.ca

With hairy warts, a stern-looking unibrow and one extremely protruding buck-tooth, Nanny McPhee is a wonderfully comedic substitute for Mary Poppins in this entertaining family fantasy. By loosely adapting Christianna Brand's Nurse Matilda children's books of the 1960s, Oscar®-winning screenwriter Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility) has also given herself the plum role of Nanny McPhee, who can tame even the most unruly children with a tap of her magic walking stick. Her latest challenge is the bratty brood of a recent widower Mr. Brown (Colin Firth), who's under pressure to find a new wife or lose his much-needed allowance from wealthy Aunt Adelaide (a tailor-made role for Angela Lansbury). His love for scullery maid Evangeline (Kelly Macdonald) remains unspoken as he wincingly woos the eagerly merry widow Mrs. Quickly (Celia Imrie), but Brown's raucous rugrats have a plan to make things right, especially after they've come under the benevolent influence of Nanny McPhee, whose peculiar brand of discipline works wonders for everyone involved. Both quintessentially British and universally appealing, this wildly colorful comedy (thanks to a bold palette of costume and production design) was capably directed by Kirk Jones, whose appreciation for comic actors was equally apparent in his critically acclaimed 1998 comedy Waking Ned Devine. With just a hint of darkness to offset the whimsy, Nanny McPhee offers a splendid match of director, cast and material, guaranteed to please Wallace & Gromit fans and anyone else with a taste for British zaniness. --Jeff Shannon

The Sound of Music’s Von Trapp kids

look like the Brady Bunch

compared to Cedric’s seven imps

who eat their own for lunch

When nanny number eighteen comes

they quickly hatch a plot

but quickly learn the McPhee dame

is Mary Poppins – NOT!

All dressed in black with walking stick

she’s got two ugly moles

a unibrow and one buck tooth

and pores like giant holes

Although they try to tame the Shrew

they’re like a book she’s read

She makes them learn their lessons

and to quit while they’re ahead

No Cheaper by the Dozen

their dad has had his fill

without his Great Aunt Adelaide

he couldn’t pay a bill

He’s got one month to find a wife

to please Aunt Adelaide

but when he picks a cruel witch

some fresh new plans are made

As long as she can fill a need

Nanny McPhee will stay

but when that need is at an end

she has to go away

A family film for everyone

and highly recommended

a fairy tale where all ends well

and you’ll be sad it’s ended.

Well done Emma. This may not be on the level of a certain previous nanny movie that had all the Hollywood bells and whistles but it is certainly great entertainment the whole family can enjoy.

The good witch turns up to correct the misgivings of both parents and children. I wish there were more people like that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough! Dec 27 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
My daughter saw this on TV and wanted to see it again and again. Ordered this edition and now I am stuck watching it minimum once a day if not more. Quality of Blu-ray is wonderful. Speed of delivery was a little out of the time frame, but I did order this product near Christmas time which might explain the slight delay of a weekend worth of waiting. But apart from that, love this story.

A wonderful story for the children. Light and entertaining, a good movie for the whole family. Whimsical and fun. A definite must for your collection.
