Storyline

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. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

In the scene where Katie and Alex take Jenny to buy new clothes, in the original airing and primary subsequent airings, the song Pretty Woman was played, however, in more recent airings, the song has been changed, and is very noticeable, since all the cues were to the original song. See more »

Not a bad movie, some flaws
25 August 2002 | by dereksaunSee all my reviews

Not a bad movie, but there were some unpolished areas. A bit too much slapstick (like the wicked fiance falling in the water). There was also not much, if any, credit given to the Budapest location. Were we suppose to think it was Paris? John Rhys-Davies might be typecast (but only in my mind). I kept thinking "what is General Koskov of the James Bond film 'The Living Daylights' doing here?" After all, part of the James Bond film was set in Vienna, like this film!

The audience naturally would be hoping for a happy ending. However, the Gregory Harrison character is not necessarily the ideal husband. He is easily fooled by the fiance, is willing to be tricked into a sudden wedding, and doesn't seem to have an interest in his children.

Overall, I think the film could have been better had the script been written better. Perhaps they assume that children can only understand a situation where good and bad are obvious.
