Storyline

Jack always lands on his feet. He lands on his feet when he marries the beautiful Sarah. He lands on his feet when he buys a luxurious new home. However, when Sarah goes into labour, he takes a tumble down the stairs and lands on his head. When he comes around he discovers he is the proud father of a baby girl, but deficient in the spouse department to the tune of 1. He hires the help of a novice nanny, but at the end of the day, it's Jack who's left holding the baby. Written by Tim McSmythurs <Tim.McSmythurs@swindon.ericsson.se>

Cute as a button
11 January 2003 | by (London, Ontario) – See all my reviews

A total chick flick (gotta admit) but just cute cute cute.

An american woman falls into a nanny job for a recent Brit widower and finds herself over her head --- in love with the baby, and the dad.

Funny performance by Richard E. Grant, Ian McKellan, Judy Dench (always a gem!) and Samantha Mathis. Life is just a series of mishaps, conflicts and comedy for this Yank in London until she finds love (what else would we expect) --- a good way to spend a Saturday night in front of the boob-toob --- do not expect to be enlightened but do expect some laughter and tears --- it is romantic and emotional (his secretary is a hoot, his boss is a bitch who you love to see dumped on her tight snooty ass!) --- a nice two hours to spend coming away with a smile!
