Quite good.
4 February 2001 | by (Gan-Yavne, Israel) – See all my reviews

Just like in THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, the movie centers on a psycho nanny who'd do anything to keep her secret. And as people get suspicious, the bodycount begins and the walls close on the psycho nanny, leading to the invertible final climax.

But here the motivation is different: it's not revenge, it's just pure madness and the main character's need to be loved "just like in the books".

This movie never soars to incredible heights of suspense or originality, but it keeps the viewer interested, mostly due to the superb cast.

It's definitely worth viewing. I liked it as a little snack. Not much more.
