Trivia

Nanny McPhee's sidekick Mr Edelweiss was originally set to be a raven. However, these are large and rather dangerous birds so director Susanna White persuaded Emma Thompson to change it to a jackdaw, a much more manageable creature. Thompson trained extensively with six jackdaws so she would appear used to them onscreen. See more »

One for all the family
22 March 2010 | by sabertammamaSee all my reviews

Not having seen Nanny McPhee 1, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised.

The film was very easy to get into and the story and plot were well written and set.

The actors young and old performed brilliantly making the whole thing enchanting and a highly believable fantasy.

The special effects were very well done and the comedy in it was delightful. I took my children with me, aged 5, 12, 15 and 18 and they all loved it too, with lots of laugh out loud moments and lots of smiles throughout.

All in all a very good film and I recommend it highly.

If you're going to see it I suggest you take all the family. Its a definite must see for all ages and you'll not be disappointed.
