Movie Info

Tom Winston (Cary Grant) is struggling to raise his three children on his own after his wife's death. After meeting the charming and beautiful Cinzia Zaccardi (Sophia Loren) at a concert, he hires her as a live-in nanny. Unbeknown to Tom, Cinzia is actually a European socialite on the run from her domineering father (Harry Guardino) and has absolutely no experience with cooking, cleaning or raising children. She does, however, have an interest in Tom.

    This is a cute and fun little romantic movie with two great stars, and I enjoyed it.

    Cute entertaining flick from Cary Grant. Not one of his best, but I could spend two hours watching Cary Grant take out his trash. This time around he's a divorced man taking in his three young kids after their mother dies in a car accident. He hasn't been much of a father up until now, so he's having to spend a little while getting the kids to like him again. When the youngest boy wanders off during a concert and is found by Sophia Loren, she takes him back to Grant's apartment and the kids beg him to hire her as their maid. Through a series of events, the family ends up living on a houseboat. In the meantime....well, you can guess what happens from here. Cary and Sophia scratch and claw at each other first, but then instead of fur, sparks fly. Grant is gorgeous, Sophia is gorgeous, and the whole film is a fun little romp suitable for the whole family. And unlike 90% of the romcoms, this one didn't make me nauseous. Good job.

    Romantic, funny, charming. I'm a fan of both stars, and how could you watch this and not be a fan?
