The nursery rhyme names, lashings of ginger beer and a motorbike and sidecar trip to London ... would have liked it will have the killjoys claiming the film is seasoned to American taste but I found it utterly charming.

It's possible that it could come off as a little surprising, despite its predictable nature, if you haven't seen the first film. But even then, I think it would be rather obvious that the charm is missing.

An unfunny nanny who outstays her welcome.

Thompson brings a sly wit to some scenes, and her absence is felt when she leaves the screen time to the bickering children.

Nanny McPhee Returns establishes standard class differences between the country cousins and the city cousins -- even as both sets of children are in need of retraining by the daunting Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson).
September 5, 2010
Almost defiantly old-fashioned. There is something charming about the idea that children will still go for this sort of thing.

Nanny McPhee Returns may not be the most original material, but compared to so much of the dim-bulb rubbish churned out for tots, it practically qualifies as enchanted.

Thompson spends much of Nanny McPhee Returns's interminable 109-minute runtime trying to set her homely titular heroine apart from Mary Poppins.

Noisy, forced and much less magical than Nanny McPhee I.

It's nice to see Nanny McPhee back again, even if she's every bit as scary as she was when she first appeared.

[W]hat sort of mind thinks this sort of material is children's entertainment?

The only performer to emerge without a professional scratch is Thompson, who as usual makes the most of her character, warts and all.

Poopy fun for the tots, but Maggie Smith deserves better

August 26, 2010
At least the A-list cast and crisp direction by TV vet Susanna White lift the film out of the dung heap.
August 25, 2010
A sweet-tempered film with characters it's possible to care about -- even while they pass through predictable situation after predictable situation.

Emma Thompson scores again as the ugly nanny made beautiful by good deeds

August 23, 2010
Nanny McPhee Returns is enjoyable for a lot longer than it's not, filled with class and charm that a lot of other children's films reject as unpalatable.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Thompson's brilliance can be seen all through this mostly kid-friendly tale.

Everything seems terribly bleak at first, but Nanny McPhee soon makes delightful, magical sights appear while she goes about 'fixing' things.
