The Perfect Homemaker
5 February 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The perfectly bad opening has wide-eyed psycho "romance novel" reader Tracy Nelson (as Andrea McBride) walking in on scruffily sexy husband Darren Gray Ward (as Troy Hatfield) with an arousing blonde. She stabs herself and not the blonde, which understandably lands Ms. Nelson in a mental hospital. Upon release, Nelson takes a thankfully more natural approach to knife wielding. In the future, she will only stab herself when absolutely necessary. Nelson fantasizes about a romance similar to the one in her favorite novel "The Passion of Mandy". She gets a job as "The Perfect Nanny" by stealing the resume of "Nikki Harcourt" and lands a job working for Southern California neurosurgeon Bruce Boxleitner (as James Lewis)...

In the hospital, it's easy to tell he's a good guy by comparing Mr. Boxleitner's height and hair count with rival Scott Alan Smith (as Doctor Conrad). Attracting ex-model Susan Blakely (as Julia Bruning), the widower Boxleitner has two children, college-bound Dana Barron (as Fawn) and gullible young Scott Terra (as Ben). The boy boasts an IQ of 162, but daughter Dana turns out to be the smartest branch on the family tree. Getting wiser and visibly older in close-ups, Ms. Barron suspects there's a rotten nanny in the house. Livening up events is ditsy mother Katherine Helmond (as Rebecca McBride), who proves some apples don't fall far from the tree. Nelson and her trashy family are perfectly cast, and watching Barron unravel the plot is dumb fun.
