Storyline

Italian-American mafioso Carmine Ganucci evicts Miss Poole and her school of etiquette from the commercial building he has just purchased, the space which he wants for one of his own illicit businesses, and despite Miss Poole having a long term lease. An incensed Miss Poole senses an opportunity when, going to confront Ganucci about the situation, he mistakes her as an applicant for nanny, he requiring such a caregiver for his son Lewis as he and his wife head to Italy for an extended trip, leaving Lewis at home with said caregiver. In her new position as nanny, Miss Poole plans to exact revenge and get what she feels is appropriate monetary compensation - $50,000 - by masterminding a plot to kidnap Lewis, her accompanist Luther who she will co-opt as that actual kidnapper without telling him that it is Ganucci's son they are kidnapping. Complications and misunderstandings ensue when nanny deals with one of Ganucci's low level flunkies, Benny Napkins, to have the $50,000 ransom paid ... Written by Huggo

Lynn Redgrave
19 October 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This chaotic, fitfully amusing comedy of how Lynn Redgrave's character came to mastermind the kidnapping of a Mafia don owes its occasional successes largely to Ms. Redgrave's crisp performance and her sardonic delivery of some amusing lines. Victor Mature is also fine as an oblivious Mafia don. Dom Deluise and John Astin put a lot of energy into their roles as lawyers, and Pat Morita has a funny monologue about how Japanese people can't pronounce the letter L. However, the script stumbles in several directions at once, trying and failing to cover the subplots in the Evan Hunter novel, and the other men in the cast, particularly Paul Sand and Austin Pendleton as Redgrave's unwitting henchmen, along with three or four other alumni of the Second City troupe's first year all wind up playing their characters alike, as vague, whiny and low key. The net effect is slow and dull. Give this a miss.
