Annie Braddock: You want to know about the dads? I'll tell you about the dads.

So take it from me, guys: Enjoy tonight, because your future looks pretty fucking bleak.

Feels like chamomile tea
17 November 2011 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Like chamomile tea, the Nanny Diaries is fragrant, has a delicate almost bland taste, is not bad at all, but after a while is totally forgotten.

It is not going to harm you, but is not going to be a memorable experience either.

For a movie that was supposed to be a comedy, this one is missing a few laughters. There are a few funny moments, but for the most part it is a light drama.

This is a typical chick-flick for a cold rainy day. It is not a kid's movie, by the way...
