Fran Drescher took voice lessons to alter the nasal quality of her voice for the part of Joy Miller. When she arrived on set using her new "normal" voice, producers insisted that she revert to her natural trademark one, as it was one of the reasons she was asked to play the part. See more »

While I won't say that this is an excellent movie, I still like it for its irreverent sense of humor. The acting's pretty average, there seem to be so many plots going on at the same time, but it still makes for an entertaining and interesting watch, if only to see the Nanny in her first major big-screen role. She brings the trademark we know so well to the movie - her nasal voice and pre-occupation with the trivial stuff, but she also brings a kind of sensitivity we've never seen before in the Nanny series.
I quite like some of the scenes - how she teaches the kids what she knows (airline miles), the massage scene, the home-coming, and a lot of others that just seem to be made just for her.
