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 »

I have never enjoyed The Nanny, but I'm a fan of Timothy Dalton. It seems inconceivable that any casting director thought to put these two actors together, but, by some warped cosmic thing, it kind of worked in this movie. Granted, the script is predictable and borrows angles from classics from The King and I, Sound of Music and even I Love Lucy. Yet, when I want to watch something brainless and lighthearted (admit it--we all have those moments) I'll opt for this movie.
