A howling headache-inducer that features bratty urchins prone to torturing people and a color scheme resplendent with hot-pink bustiers and peeling lime paint.

To those of you who always wanted to refer to Mary Poppins as 'the hot one,' your hour has come!

Its redeeming virtues are Thompson, Firth and Kelly Macdonald as Firth's adoring housemaid; they manage to give genuine, affecting performances in the midst of all the outlandish, obnoxious goings-on.

The kiddie komedy of Nanny McPhee shows that Mary Poppins plus Charles Dickens can add up to less than even Cheaper by the Dozen.

The movie is hampered by production designer Michael Howell's garish neon color palate contrasted against clownish costumes by Nic Ede...

The wildly colorful costumes and the jubilant defiance of the film's terrorizing tykes simply is not enough for Nanny McPhee to get its hapless house in order.

For a movie that aspires to capture the magic of a classic fairy tale, Nanny McPhee has all the warmth and charm of the assembly instructions for an Ikea bookshelf.

The intermittent pleasures [Nanny McPhee] affords, provided chiefly by a standout cast in high camp mode, make it a passable destination for a family outing.

McPhee is a composite of Margaret Hamilton, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and the grunting Karl from Sling Blade.

Except for a few nice, honest moments that manage to sneak in, watching Nanny McPhee is like being beaten over the head with a toy mallet: harmless, yet awfully irritating.

There are many different kinds of children's movies, and this one tries to be all of them at once -- including one of those in which the children are smarter than the adults.

A spoonful of sugar would be just the start to make this unappetizing family film properly go down ...

Nanny McPhee should work for the kids, but it's the unusual adult who will find these proceedings charming.

Thompson is impossible to dislike, but her ineffable grace and sympathy are not as evident as usual.

The fun is doled out in small portions and the film is so passive that younger kids will probably fidget in their seats.

Although such elements lend the film an edge most American children's films wouldn't dare, Nanny McPhee is actually quite conventional in virtually every other regard.
