Not much of a guy movie, but it was an all right family film that's for sure.

When Mrs. X(Laura Linney) finally reveals her sensitive side(like Miranda Preistly(Meryl Streep) in "The Devil Wears Prada"), her vulnerability beneath the mask of apathetic nonchalance, we're not buying it. She's more believable When Mrs. X(Laura Linney) finally reveals her sensitive side(like Miranda Preistly(Meryl Streep) in "The Devil Wears Prada"), her vulnerability beneath the mask of apathetic nonchalance, we're not buying it. She's more believable as an unrepentant bitch. Her epiphany doesn't come about organically. It's too formulaic, and downright idiotic. Didn't she screen the damn tape? Thanks to some convoluted writing, Scarlett Johannsen gets to make an obvious speech about bad parenting. Linney gets to cry. Even when "The Nanny Diaries" is a passable entertainment about self-centered rich people, the film is watered down by Annie's romance with Dean(John Henry Cox). She feels bad for Grayer(Nicholas Art), but apparently, not that bad. She gets some. Expand

The Devil "Buys" Prada. A summer fluff movie that is only worth seeing for Laura Linney, who does the best she can with material that just isn't very interesting. Scarlett Johannson dyed her hair brown but you still don't believe The Devil "Buys" Prada. A summer fluff movie that is only worth seeing for Laura Linney, who does the best she can with material that just isn't very interesting. Scarlett Johannson dyed her hair brown but you still don't believe she's a nanny and Paul Giamatti is only just a name for the marquee. Summer is over. The Weinstein's should have known the audience for this movie has gone back to school. I recommend you wait on this for the dvd. Expand
