Trivia

Nanny McPhee's sidekick Mr Edelweiss was originally set to be a raven. However, these are large and rather dangerous birds so director Susanna White persuaded Emma Thompson to change it to a jackdaw, a much more manageable creature. Thompson trained extensively with six jackdaws so she would appear used to them onscreen. See more »

Goofs

The War Office is guarded by a black man in the traditional uniform of the five regiments of Foot Guards, who guard the British Monarch (red tunic, large bearskin hat). The first black member of the Foot Guards joined the Grenadier Guards in 1985. See more »

Very funny light hearted family movie.
14 November 2010 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

a good strictly family movie, this one was not as good as the first one, the screenplay etc but far more entertaining and fun. Emma Thompson can do anything, love her in this character, a very strict magical nanny that bring order and manners to the fighting and mess creating children through magic while making them learn 5 different lessons. Maggie was awesome playing the mother, so were those 5 children among which 2 were the very high profile city based children who are cousins of the other 3. maggie Smith, Ralph Fiennes, Ewan McGregor and Rhys Ifans were decent in their small roles.

this was an extremely fun and enjoyable family comedy. right from the start you will love it. it is one of the few really entertaining movies this year. not as sophisticated and near classic as the first one as far as writing is concerned, cinematography is marvelous. costumes and art direction is good. and the special effects were nice and were not overly done. i would say again that children acted really well and the British accent , My God loved it. its charming, light hearted fun. Do watch.
