Ally (Emmanuelle Vaugier of TV's TWO AND A HALF MEN, TV's CSI: NY) is a smart young career woman who needs a new job. Samantha (Cynthia Gibb of FAME, GYPSY) is a busy Beverly Hills advertising executive/mom whose too-well-mannered kids need some fun in their lives. And Danny Donner (Dean Cain of TV's LOIS & CLARK) is the tough-guy owner of a chocolate company who wants a major ad campaign immediately. Could these three lives intertwining lead to the Christmas that changes everyone's worlds forever? Richard Ruccolo (TV's RITA ROCKS), Sierra McCormick (RAMONA AND BEEZUS), Jared Gilmore (TV's MAD MEN), and Sarah Thompson (TV's 7TH HEAVEN, TV's ANGEL) co-star in this surprising comedy about little white lies, big holiday wishes, and a woman who may just find love in the most unexpected places by becoming A Nanny For Christmas.

A Christmas movie that doesn't make you think too hard
Emmanuelle Vaugier plays a suma cum laud college graduate trying to break into the world of advertising. She interviews with one of the hottest agencies in the field, where she thinks she's interviewing for an account executive position but is instead hired as the nanny for the CEO's two children. Along the way she begins to fall in love with one of the agency's male executives who is struggling to come up with a pitch for a major client. Thinking that the executive will think less of her for being a nanny, she lies and tells him that she's a "special consultant" to the agency, hoping to impress him. As the nanny, she teaches the children that Shakespeare can be fun... if you set up your own play. Regimented in their behavior by their over-bearing mother and absentee father, the children embrace their new nanny's ideas of how to do things (hence the references to the "Sound of Music").
Already we know how the movie will end, but what makes you want to stick around and watch is (a) Ms. Vaugier, who does a great job of being the playful nanny as well as the business-first executive, and (b) a simple, straight-forward plot that you can watch over hot cocoa and spongecake.
You probably won't cry at the end, but at least you'll laugh at the more humorous moments.
