Nanny McPhee Reviews

  • Jun 17, 2020

    Nanny Mcphee seems like a movie from another time when the story was the main focus. Not surprising since it is based on the beloved fairy-tale books about Nurse Mathilda. That's not to say that the visuals weren't great. On the contrary the sets and effects served to enhance what is an appealing and compelling work of art. Emma Thompson is mesmerizing as the title character. Despite her initial grotesque appearance you could sense that there was more to her than meets the eye. By the time the movie ends you don't want her to leave.

    The children were so over the top horrid, the father and staff so useless, and Nanny McPhee's methods so harsh I gave up after less than 30 minutes. I understand it's supposed to get better, but the first half hour was so awful I had enough by then. I can't imagine a young child not having nightmares.

    This movie is nothing short of phenomenal with its haunting music, stunning visuals, superb casting, accomplished acting, and adorable children. A fresh new take on a classic concept and it succeeds marvelously. The naysayers clearly have no eye for cinematic art. I don't see how this movie deserves a single rotten review. Despite its superficial resemblance to Mary Poppins, it has a completely different feel which lends it its own originality and evokes all the appropriate emotions from joy and sorrow to hope and love. This is a must-see and an jnstant classic.

    Glad I never saw this movie. Mary Poppins, it isn't. A poor copy of Mary Poppins.

    While not quite as whimsical as Mary Poppins or even this movie's own sequel, Nanny McPhee does teach good life lessons and Emma Thompson makes the titular character her own rather than just being a Scottish carbon-copy of the classic Julie Andrews character. Also, hey look, it's Newt from the Maze Runner movie trilogy.

    Jones's fatal attempts of creating a magical music number as Mary Poppins unfortunately fails on all levels in here. Nanny McPhee Jones's fatal attempts of creating a magical music number as Mary Poppins unfortunately fails on all levels in here. To what was supposed to play on props and create awestruck delightful moments with the kids, is instead left out dry and unexplored in here. This overly rotten out formulaic structure of the script is not only outdated but is so poorly conceived that it doesn't stand on its own grounds, it contradicts its own nature. The mythical aspects of the storyline that was supposed to attract the viewers, seems like is pretentious and a metaphor gone wrong case. The reasons and concept may have a heart but that heart isn't pumping at all for either the viewers or the characters. The result is pure Sunday morning venture, you have seen this morning before too and the plans that it has for you is something that you are not looking forward to. Having said that, it doesn't suggest that there aren't any good bits in here. The usual sketchy sequences between the kids and a nanny, the tactics used by bratty mischievous kids and the gags that leads to the bonding of the kids to a newer member of the family, somehow in its giddy nature works like a charm. Thomson as the nanny herself who also co-wrote the script, is a delight to watch, her caring nature with productive methods and impressive tricks up her sleeve, elevates the momentum and raises the bar of the feature. On the supporting cast, the younger cast has decently managed to stay on the track along with Firth as the man in charge and Macdonald as the driver, who are convincing on their roles. Nanny McPhee is the perfect gift for your kids but only up till its first half, the second half is a big old sobbing mess.
