Someone Please Explain Scarlett To Me...I know she's a babe, but c'mon, she is the world's most wooden actress. This movie is cheesy in all the wrong ways, it offers no satisfying conclusion, the characters are flat and uninteresting. Not a drama, not a rom-com, not a comedy. It's just bleh all around.

Of course, throughout the film, you wish the Nanny would stand up for herself, but standing up in the end is better than not at all. I do wish she would have received a real paycheck and substantial bonus in the letter she received at the end. That would've been a great close to an enoyable, cute film.

2.0 out of 5 starsNothing to see here

If you're looking for a chance to see Black Widow get that long awaited kiss from Captain America, go ahead and watch this if you must. Otherwise, you won't find much of interest here. This is a movie that doesn't know what it wants to be, and succeeds at being not much of anything. It starts out as if it's going to be a coming-of-age movie about a young woman who serendipitously lands a nanny job, and gets carried up in youthful daydreams about becoming Mary Poppins. Then it forgets about that and decides it's going to be Mommy Dearest with a nanny as the central victim. Nah, nevermind, let's make it a romantic comedy, only without the laughs. Ok forget that, we'll be a touching tale of self-sacrifice from a saintly woman who redeems her own abusers. Or whatever. At one point the movie even sets up what will apparently become be a running joke about never seeing the child's father's face, but grows tired of it and even gives up on that. Scarlet Johansson is great at conveying a sense of vulnerability, but nothing else in this movie works. The jokes aren't funny, the bad guys are too stereotypical for us to hate them, her relationships with the various secondary characters are never properly grounded in anything we see on film. Chris Evans isn't given anything more to do than flash his smile and say charming sweet nothings. When you get to the end of this movie you'll wonder how it managed to kill so much time without doing anything. On second thought, if you want to see Black Widow and Captain America kiss, go back and rewatch the escalator scene from Winter Soldier. You'll see more working story telling on that escalator ride than in this entire movie.

Finding this movie I figured it was going to be one of those cheap cheesy ones. However, it turned out to be a very deep movie about raising kids. You start to have feelings for the characters- good and bad. Loved this movie

3.0 out of 5 starsnot very entertaining, predictable
Verified purchase
So, I don't really know why it's listed as a comedy because there was nothing funny. Not once was there anything worth laughing at. Chris Evans was a surprise when he showed up although I did know that he had supposedly been in a movie with Scarlett Johansson before the marvel characters. I was surprised he wasn't listed as one of the main characters.
Anyway if someone needs to watch a movie that shows how pitiful it really is for people to live a lavish lifestyle but leave their child to be raised by strangers, then I guess there is a reason for this movie.
There is a positive ending but it was a really long drawn out path to get to the end. But since there wasn't too much cursing, I did watch til the end.

3.0 out of 5 starsOf all the nanny movies, that was one.
Verified purchase
I love Scarlet in most things. She was OK. Handsome hunk was hunky and sweet. I've seen a few of these and aside from a few details, they are pretty much the same nanny story. Does this mean that Hollywood elite are raising their own kids now? No more Nanny-personal assistant-slaves? Can't believe one of Scarlet's last lines, she said FER-miliar, rather than the actual word FAMILIAR. Ah, well. It was watchable. The kid was a wonderful little kid as we all were. I did make it through the whole film, so I'll give it a 3, and one less New York nanny film to watch.

5.0 out of 5 starsFinally a chick flick that I didn't hate.
Verified purchase
I had my suspicions that this was a chick flick when I first decided to watch this and I was right. But after watching it all the way through, I actually came to the conclusions that I liked it a lot. A very nice story that was very well acted. I probably won't watch it again but do recommend it to anyone looking for a nice movie for the entire family to watch.

3.0 out of 5 starsover the top exaggerated snobs
Verified purchase
cute the way they present it as a sociological experiment/observation, complete with dioramas. However, the premise quickly unravels as annie is too worried about losing this crappy job. she will literally do ANYTHING they ask, no matter how absurd and demanding. might work for an illegal alien, but certainly not for an educated young american. and the other rich people are way over the top in terms of inhuman snobbishness, which detracts a bit as well. sure one can understand a little stretch, but this is just too much.
