Bryce Dallas Howard,
After graduating from Montclair State, New Jersey Girl Annie can't make up her mind about what to do with her life. After saving a little boy from being run over in the park, she is quickly employed as a nanny for a rich Upper East Side couple. Mr X is occupied with his business, Mrs X loves shopping, and neither really likes to spend time with their little boy Grayer. Annie quickly learns that she has more than her hands full taking care of him. Her busy schedule doesn't give her much spare time. Mrs X fired her last nanny because she was dating and that gives Annie problems when Harvard Hottie who lives in the same building asks her out on a date. Written by
The song "Chim, Chim, Cher-ee," from the movie Mary Poppins (1964), can be heard playing in the background while Annie contemplates becoming a nanny. Later, this tune becomes the ringtone for Annie's cell phone. See more »
When Annie returns to the apartment after being fired, she takes a swig from the liquor bottle before even looking for the "Nanny Cam." But when the mothers are viewing the tape later, we see her take the same swig and then immediately begin speaking to the camera. See more »
As another reviewer pointed out-> "Better than expected". So if your expectations are low, you will be positively surprised. I watched it a sneak preview with some friends. I guess Scarlett Johansson haters won't like the movie from the start, but everyone else can give it a shot.
Yes it is predictable, yes it has it's awkward moments, but it's also likable. The cast is stellar throughout, most of the jokes work and the kid performer walks a fine line, but always stays/plays it straight. The movie keeps a light tone overall, but has it's dark(er) moments too. They might not work for everyone (and some might hate the ending), but overall it's a decent movie (effort)
