Charlie Cruikshank and fiancée Jennifer 'Jenny' Morgan planned, after their MBA graduation, to cohabit. By accepting the European voyage his parents offer as graduation present, Charlie crosses their plan to earn a down-payment in summer. So Jenny seeks a job, hastily enough to apply for photocopy-clerk in Oliver Caldwell's multinational HQ. By mistake, Oliver hires her as nanny for his beloved brats, Alex and Katie, who spend summer with him, unlike the school year with their aunt. Businesswise he keeps traveling to Paris and further trough Europe, ultimately meeting Charlie in Austria. Coached by limousine driver Nigel Kent, Jenny proves the first nanny the kids can't scare off. They even bond and team up against Oliver's fiancée, ruthlessly ambitious, child-hating VP Vivian Berger, who wants to get rid of them.
When the right woman accepts the wrong job, anything can happen.
Did You Know?
This is the second film with Jane Sibbett
, after It Takes Two
(1995), where her character faces the same kind of humiliation in a pretty parallel fashion. While such an event isn't the last time you see her in this film, like it was in It Takes Two
(1995), like in that film, she once again, in this one, has the same kind of circumstances and ordeals, where her character, at some point, has her dress torn away, revealing her underwear in a public setting, caused by a malicious stunt that any of the main starring kids pull on her. See more
The city they arrive to is actually Budapest (Hungary) not Vienna. See more
