Pin It

Still looking for a great last minute gift? Nanny McPhee Returns is perfect for family movie nights!


Nanny McPhee Returns

When Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson) appears at the farmhouse door of busy young mother Isabel Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal), she discovers that Mrs. Green's children are in an all-out household war with their two spoiled city cousins. Relying on everything from a flying motorcycle and a statue that comes to life, to a tree-climbing piglet and an elephant that turns up in the oddest places, Nanny McPhee uses her magic to show the children five valuable lessons, the most important of which is learning how to get along.

  •  MY REVIEW

    I loved this movie. Actually I loved both the first and second Nanny McPhee movies! I think Emma Thompson is positively spectacular as Nanny McPhee. I found Nanny McPhee Returns entertaining and fun. It is 100% family friendly so it was perfect to watch with my whole family.

    All three of my kids enjoyed the movie. They found it fascinating how Nanny McPhee got prettier as the movie progressed and spent a great deal of time discussing which of her features had changed and when and why :) . The movie is full of great life lessons too.

    I loved Maggie Gyllenhaal as the overwhelmed mom and I found myself relating to her and wishing Nanny McPhee would show up at my house!  All of the actors did an excellent job and created a delightfully fun movie.

    Nanny McPhee Returns would make an excellent gift for anyone really!

    Thanks so much to Universal Studios Home Entertainment for sending me a copy of this movie to review.
