Storyline

After graduating from Montclair State, New Jersey Girl Annie can't make up her mind about what to do with her life. After saving a little boy from being run over in the park, she is quickly employed as a nanny for a rich Upper East Side couple. Mr X is occupied with his business, Mrs X loves shopping, and neither really likes to spend time with their little boy Grayer. Annie quickly learns that she has more than her hands full taking care of him. Her busy schedule doesn't give her much spare time. Mrs X fired her last nanny because she was dating and that gives Annie problems when Harvard Hottie who lives in the same building asks her out on a date. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Goofs

While drinking with Lynette in a hotel, Annie says that Mrs. X (her employer) dumps all of her problems with her husband onto Annie. Lynette replies that it's denial. "Denial" is one of the psychological defense mechanisms proposed by Freud whereby a person refuses to accept a reality. Here Mrs. X's behavior is not denial, instead it is another defense mechanism called "displacement". See more »

Quotes

Annie Braddock: Okay Mrs. X, now it's time for a few simple childcare rules.
Human Resources Director: Oh, alright, the teddy bear has been compromised.
Annie Braddock: Slamming the door in your kid's face is *not* okay. Spending more time on a benefit for kids that you've never met than you do with your own blood is *not* okay. Going to a SPA when your son has a fever of a hundred and four and not answering emergency calls, that officially makes you an unfit mother.
Mrs. X: This is outrageous. Stop the tape.
Human Resources Director: Uh, no. This is clearly a disgruntled nanny. W-we ...

boring
28 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie was a boring waste of time. Annie the nanny walks around with her mouth open most of the time. Annie has a blank look on her face most of the time also. The book was much better. I would not recommend this movie to anyone. I had really looked forward to the release of this movie only to be very disappointed when it finally was released. I guess you could say that I am not really a fan of Scarlett, as I have never seen her "act", as she always has a blank stare in her eyes and a monotone voice. I had hoped she would do a better job in this movie, but I was sadly disappointed. Do not waste your money on this film, it you must see it, wait, as it will be on satellite before you know it.
