Storyline

Charlie Cruikshank and fiancée Jennifer 'Jenny' Morgan planned, after their MBA graduation, to cohabit. By accepting the European voyage his parents offer as graduation present, Charlie crosses their plan to earn a down-payment in summer. So Jenny seeks a job, hastily enough to apply for photocopy-clerk in Oliver Caldwell's multinational HQ. By mistake, Oliver hires her as nanny for his beloved brats, Alex and Katie, who spend summer with him, unlike the school year with their aunt. Businesswise he keeps traveling to Paris and further trough Europe, ultimately meeting Charlie in Austria. Coached by limousine driver Nigel Kent, Jenny proves the first nanny the kids can't scare off. They even bond and team up against Oliver's fiancée, ruthlessly ambitious, child-hating VP Vivian Berger, who wants to get rid of them. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The conversation in the background that the kids have with Nigel while Jenny and Oliver go off to talk is made up of the same recordings used earlier in the movie after Jenny wakes up on the boat and the kids tell her about the work that they've accomplished and tips that they've received.

Great Family Movie
13 March 2000 | by (Honolulu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

Great Movie with a sincere message for those parent's that need to make time to spend with their children. It also shows that life can't be always planned, but rather made up along the way! The comedy was great! This movie will be under-looked by many for the lack of promotion, but if you have a chance to watch it! Do it, for you won't be disappointed!
