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.

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

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

At least the A-list cast and crisp direction by TV vet Susanna White lift the film out of the dung heap.
Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
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

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.

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.

A bright, witty family movie that has the added attraction--rare nowadays--of not being in 3D.

I found myself alternately charmed, amused, and moved by this story of wartime England ...

Pretty sweet, more funny than not, suspenseful if you're six years old and even kind of moving if you find yourself in the position of being the grown-up along for the ride.

Whimsical, heartwarming, and a tad bittersweet.
