Nanny McPhee Returns

My oldest daughter just adores the first Nanny McPhee movie, she has watched it on TV so many times. She {nor I} had a chance to catch Nanny McPhee Returns in theaters this past summer, so it was on her wish list this holiday season. Yet thanks to Universal Studios Home Entertainment, we received an early DVD copy to watch. If you haven’t seen it yet, Nanny McPhee Returns comes out onto DVd today {December 14th}.

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.

Nanny McPhee Returns is a movie about wizardry, and once you get past the unique look that is Emma Thomson’s nose, tooth and mole {hilarious!} – it’s a great movie with a fabulous storyline. I particularly enjoyed the scene when the mom of 3 feels so discouraged and tired of managing the chaos – felt all too close to home for me. Yet, Nanny McPhee comes to the rescue at just the right time! This movie is a great example of a family working together and helping each other out – so that all is not lost. This is indeed a heartwarming story that reminds us parents that it’s alright to ask for help, and it’s important for kids to pitch in, share, be kind and use their manners. For the kids, my girls especially liked the antics of Nanny McPhee – dancing pigs and fireworks! Now, if only we could all have a magical nanny like that!

Nanny McPhee Returns is a wonderful family movie, and all ages will walk away with a favorite part or a special lesson. While the kids are out for Christmas break, cuddle in and watch a movie as a family. It’s a lovely way to spend an evening!

    I have four children, ages 10 and under. We enjoyed the first movie. We recently moved to MS from TN. For the past 10 years it has only been my husband, myself and our children. Now, we live across the road from my in-laws. We already have movie night but I would like to start to include my in-laws in our movie night. It would be nice to add this movie to our collection to our new addition to our tradition. Thanks again!
