Editorial Reviews:
Make way for more fun and hilarious mayhem as Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson reprises her role as the magical Nanny McPhee, who arrives when she’s needed the most and wanted the least. When Nanny McPhee appears at the farmhouse door of a 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. Critics are calling this heartwarming family adventure “another classic, just like the original.” (Mark Allen, CBS-TV)
Nanny McPhee Returns is a simultaneously dark and funny film that features the formidable Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson), an ugly woman who has a magical way of helping kids mature and learn proper behavior--even against their will. Based on the Nurse Matilda books by Christianna Brand, Nanny McPhee Returns is not so much a sequel to the first Nanny McPhee film as a second, stand-alone story. While her husband is off fighting in the war, Isabel Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal) has her hands full taking care of her three children (Oscar Steer, Asa Butterfield, and Lil Woods), running the family farm, and refusing the constant entreaties of her brother-in-law (Rhys Ifans) to sell her share of the farm. When two cousins (Eros Vlahos and Rosie Taylor-Ritson) from the city arrive with a healthy disdain for their new surroundings and a better-than-you attitude, things begin to get really out of control. Nanny McPhee appears, as if by magic, and though Isabel won't admit she needs her help, McPhee immediately takes charge, vowing to teach the children five lessons that they simply must learn. While the film is somewhat dark, thanks to the family's monetary hardships and the uncertainty regarding the father's status in the war, it also offers abundant humor in scenes such as the spoiled cousins' arrival at what they call the "British Museum of Poo," and in imaginative gimmicks like an elaborately complicated farm invention dubbed the "Pig Scratch-O-Matic" and a litter of acrobatic piglets who occasionally engage in the art of synchronized swimming. Add in a putty-eating bird, the ever-stern Nanny McPhee with her magical walking stick and her dubious ties to the War Department, and a very scatterbrained shopkeeper (Maggie Smith), and there always seems to be something entertaining to chuckle about. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi
