Storyline

A friend persuades the former wrestling star Sean to do a job as bodyguard for the two kids of top manager Frank Mason - someone is threatening him to get the plans for a secret micro chip. But when Sean arrives at his house it turns out that he'll not only have to bodyguard the spoiled brats, but also be their nanny, since they again scared away their former one. From then on he's occupied more protecting himself from the kids than them from the villain. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Quotes

Thanatos: I ordered you to throw that match, cost me money, big money!
Burt Wilson: Oh yeah? Bigger than your hair?
Sean Armstrong: We don't throw matches.
Burt Wilson: Yeah, tell ya what, if you was soaked in some gasoline, we'd throw some matches, y'know the flaming kind, and with that fur-ball on top of your head, you'd make one hell of a torch.

Fairly Entertaining
26 June 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Whilst I didn't enjoy Mr. Nanny as much as Suburban Commando (released in 1991) it was still a decent enough film.

It was a comedy film and Hogan is quite good at comedy. Hogan isn't a bad actor either-after all we know wrestling is acting and Hogan's had plenty of experience in that.

The film was fairly entertaining and there were some good scenes in it although the kids did tend to get on my nerves at times.

It's a good film which I am sure most people would enjoy if they are in the right mood.
