The Nanny: What a shame
19 October 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The Nanny was a pick and mix movie for me, I went in knowing nothing but was happy to see Jaime Murrays name pop up on the opening credits. I would class her as one of my favourite actresses and just don't think she gets the recognition she deserves.

Here in The Nanny she puts in a career best performance, but in the end it simply didn't matter.

The Nanny tells the story of a single mother who (Shocker) finds herself needing a nanny for her two children. In comes Ms Murray who is a mysterious woman that everyone deems perfect for the job, except the daughter.

Truth be told the first half of The Nanny is excellent, it's so well crafted, beautifully shot and gripping. Then the second half comes and it all falls apart, I mean really badly! A combination of silliness, poor sfx and rushed concepts ruin what was primed and ready to be an excellent film.

Part horror, part fantasy this dark fairytale also stars Nicholas "Xander from Buffy" Brendon and Schuyler "Country Singer" Fisk. It's heartbreaking to me when a film with such potential falls apart as badly as this did. I would love to see someone reshoot/rewrite the second half as it has unlimited potential!

Sadly it's potential squandered, though Murray is excellent and the first half is very enjoyable the rest of the film is an utter mess.

The Good:

First half

Jaime Murray

Masterfully shot

The Bad:

Second half

Some goofy sfx

Lots of unanswered questions

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Jaime Murray seems to connect herself to flawed movies

It's always nice to see Nicholas Brendon take time out of his busy schedule of prison to make movies
