It's more of a kids' film than a grown-up's movie, with a good message at its heart.

The kind of movie that I would have loved to seen as a kid. Magical stuff. I look forward to the sequel. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Nanny McPhee really works ... despite all of its common plots and ideas, because it stays true to storybook conventions that have never and will never get old.

An exquisitely designed fable that will delight adults as well as their offspring through its beguiling innocence and hushed, low-key charm.

Often as garish and shrill as it is magical and enchanting.

I found myself tearing up right on cue, (Patrick Doyle knows all my buttons) but sincerely, enjoying the magical tale as much as if I were a small child.

Should play well with the small fry, though adults may be more bothered by the clumsy shifts in tone.

It relies on a good story and interesting characters a lot more than it does on eye candy.

The kids will love the candy-box sets and costumes like confectionery-shop windows, the whimsy and farcical grotesqueness of it all.

Any time Thompson curls that prosthetic snaggletooth over her lower lip and murmurs a nearly inaudible harrumph is a comic moment to be treasured.

Despite the heavy makeup and prosthetics, Emma Thompson shapes a touching and mysterious character. Nanny McPhee is a fine film for the whole family.

The script's wry humor survives even the hambone directing of Kirk Jones, who amps up the performances and the color scheme to cartoony extremes.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Its striking combination of day-glo psychedelic colors and a rich streak of morbidity is enough to keep it afloat most of the time.
