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

Blah
26 February 2010 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

A disappointing mess of a movie that wastes a fine cast. It's especially disappointing because occasionally you can see the potential for it to be the lively, entertaining farce that it aims to be.

Unfortunately, too much of the film is poorly handled (e.g. the pre-credits scene where the Etiquette school is closed down) or is weak as a comedy (e.g. the lame attempts at humour based around the constant references to 'boobs'). As well the plot never coheres, in part because it covers too many characters; Astin and DeLuise's characters (both wasted) could've easily been excised from the film.

As the other reviewer says, Lynn Redgrave gives a fine performance in the central role. She doesn't fall into the trap that other cast members do (especially Pendleton) of going over the top in a vain attempt to cover the thinness of the material.

There are a few amusing bits, like the matter-of-fact way the child reacts to being kidnapped by putting on his watch because "he never travels without it".

But overall there's not much entertainment to be had from this film.
