    The Story Line Of The Movie Is Average, Because Of The Scenes Where McPhee Makes The Animal's Turn MAGICA!!! :)
    As For The Child Actors..... Sometimes They Seem To Ruin The Movie For Any One Watching Nanny McPhee... This Film Is Cute For Younger Children Because Of The "Magic" And The "Fun" Thrown Out In The Movie...
    The Special Effect's Are So-So Because When The Animals Are Dancing It
    Looks Fake..
    This Was Not The Best Or The Worst Movie Of 2006...

    The movies colors almost blind me to death, and even though it is pretty childish, the ending feels as true magic that movies can create. Good to enough to enjoy with all the actors.

    Nanny McPhee an all round family movie for the family but some floors that did not impress my Squeamish brother. Another down side to this movie is the plot is around a slightly dark thought of a man who needs to marry or no rent fair enough but this movie scores a 5.5 out of 10 for its lack of fun and differences in the movie.Still if your looking for a good family movie to watch with a bowl of popcorn GO FOR IT.

  1. Colorful, noisy and brimming with special effects, the picture may please young audiences simply looking for loud action, but its corny storyline and brittle lack of warmth may discourage both parents and children.

    Under the surface, the movie has a streak of Roald Dahl-style darkness that dilutes the sugar.

    If you have someone under 10 to take to the movies, this one is charming and painless.
