Nanny McPhee

Netflix assured me I would love Nanny McPhee . . . and they were right! I watched this last night as a mental treat, and though it is a kids' movie, I laughed out loud in several places. Plus, the screenplay was by actress Emma Thompson, who was nearly unrecognizeable in the title role.

What's it about? Well . . . she's the anti-Mary Poppins. Loved it!

Worth the rent; a great family film.

i rented Nanny McPhee from the library a couple of weeks ago. i loved it. Emma Thompson and Colin Firth are 2 of my favorite actors. Angela Lansbury was a hoot. And Kelly McDonald looks just like Kate Winslet.

so here's to opening a can of worms...what do you think about the Harry Potter movies? Once upon a time,the Wizard of Oz was banned under the sake it was evil and demonic because of the magic and wizards...
anyways,Emma Thompson is in the last couple of them and was as wonderful.
