Molly Gunn, the freewheeling daughter of a deceased rock legend, is forced to get a job when her manager steals her money. As nanny for precocious Ray, the oft ignored daughter of a music executive, she learns what it means to be an adult while teaching Ray how to be a child.Written by
The denim dress Molly wears when picking Ray up from school for the first time is a vintage dress from the seventies that belonged to the costumer designer's sister Kate when she was twelve that had been hand-customized by a babysitter. The name "Kate" was bedazzled on the back of the dress, but Brittany Murphy opted to wear a backpack to cover it up rather than ruin the history of the dress by removing the name. The name can still be seen briefly a few scenes later. See more »

Rich girl loses all her money and has to be a nanny for an uptight brat; it certainly sounds like a bad movie in the making. But actually I quite enjoyed this one. The stars are appealing, a lot of the scenes are quite funny and even though the movie is predictable and maudlin it does have scenes with a genuine emotional impact. With a script that has some intelligence and nuance and actresses who bring sincerity and belief to rather clichéd characters (child-woman and woman-child, essentially), this movie winds up being far better than it has a right to be. I feel like I have to make excuses for liking it, because it is kind of dumb, but I really very much enjoyed it.
