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.

The outside shot of the mansion used in the Movie is also the same mansion used as the exterior of Kris Jenner's "home" in "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" reality television show but is in fact not the Jenner home but was used for security reasons.See more »

the worst Christmas film I think I have ever seen, 26 November 2011
Author: Keely Evilpea

This is just terrible. The female main character is so sickly sweet I spent the first half of the film thinking it was a joke/spoof Christmas film and second half cringing behind a cushion it was so uncomfortable to watch. It's like 'the sound of music' gone terribly, terribly wrong. The acting is the worst I have ever seen, and I watch 'true movies' on sky.

Dean Cain is awful as the advertising customer, so ridiculous it's hard to put into words. I feel so strongly about this film that I felt I needed to warn others! This film actually put me off Christmas and I love rubbish Christmas movies. If you watch this film, you only have yourself to blame.
