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

Must see!
26 March 2000 | by lindentravers-2See all my reviews

This is my favorite movie! It is funny, cool and I loved Jenny Morgan! The kids were bratty and you wanted to kill them, but so what, they were great and by the end you will love them as much as the rest of the fun, cute and funny movie. although I do think the formula is unoriginal and the film probably tried too hard, but still not stopping the 10/10 from me!
