A Nanny for Christmas -- 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 Nanny for never, 5 May 2012
Author: RHewison from United Kingdom

It was an all-round Christmas cheese-fest. It was very much your typical romantic comedy in a nut-shell; girl meets boy, lies about who she is, he finds out, happy ending. Whilst it did have some good moments it was often cringe-worthy to watch. Very little plot substance and some very flat acting meant that a lot of the film feels wasted. For example to make more of a story they had Ally befriend the children but this just fell flat on its face with bad acting and scenes that lacked reality. The children's relationship with their mother, the high powered advertising exec, was very odd as well and this too added to the disbelief that the children were in any way a part of the film. Whilst some scenes were shot beautifully, with stunning views of the house, the rest of it felt very home-movie-esque. The ending I could have quoted word for word as it was so predictable. However all was not lost, as there were still some nice moments and if you want a simple, cheap rom-com to warm up your Christmas, it does the job, although I doubt many of the actors will include it on their CV's.
