Format: DVD
The Nanny Diaries is very loosly based on the book of the same title. It is one of those cases where a book is adapted but is so altered from the original material that the result is a pretty standard Hollywood comedy, complete with a formulaic happy ending. Nanny, renamed Annie for the purpose of the movie, is the daughter of single mother who, having graduated with degrees in anthropology and finance is unsure of how to begin her professional life. After an accidental encounter with Mrs X and her little son Grayer in Central Park, she decides to become a nanny. Almost immediately, the novice babysitter Annie is frustrated by being at the constant beck and call of the selfish, thoughtless socialite. Since Annie has grown attached to her charge she finds it hard to quit. Meanwhile, she meets and becomes involved with the "Harvard Hottie" who lives in the building of her employers.

This differs a great deal from the book. In the novel, Nanny (who is never named) is an experienced nanny who is working on a degree in child psychology. She works as a nanny to pay the rent on the tiny Manhatten apartment she shares while attending university. She does not live with her employer, and only takes care of her charge in the afternoons after he is let out of school. The shallow Mrs. X became far too demanding of her time. The absent Mr. X is having an affair which plays a bigger role in the book and is only implied in the movie. The book's one failure is that their child, Grayer is not really an engaging character.

The book was something of a cause celebe when it was published and many New York socialites were offended as being portrayed as unsympathetic women. There were cries to boycott the book, but this obviously fell on deaf ears because the book was a bestseller.

I am rarely disappointed in which movies that I choose to watch, but this time I was. It is a case where real life copies the movie plot. An A list star, Scarlett Johansson chose to be in a B movie. And in the movie, she plays the part of an educated and graduated woman that instead of starting her life in the career that she worked for, she opts to take a less and easier way out by babysitting.
