Nanny McPhee Returns is another great Disney movie. I prefer the first film; however, this sequel is still very entertaining. Nanny McPhee is so likeable, which makes the movie that much more enjoyable. The transformation of the characters from the beginning of the movie, to the end, is very well-developed, and the storyline, once again, has its own unique twist. In this film, you meet more of the Green family, specifically two of their spoiled cousins! This adds lots of humour and action to the movie! I would definitely recommend this movie to other viewers! I think that it is a film for people of all ages, and definitely a potential family favourite! 4/5 @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The kids still enjoyed it, but it wasn't as good as the first one.

More or less more of the same as the first one, and starts out just as badly, but once Emma Thompson shows up as Nanny McPhee it gets a lot better. The personage and portrayal of Nanny McPhee easily adds a star to the movie. It's not Mary Poppins, but that is no crime.

What a disappointment.

The first Nanny McPhee had charm, sillyness, style, mayhem all against a solid background of an excellent story, great characters, wonderful actors and heartfelt honest emotion - and special effects used judiciously.

There are some fine actors on display here (Thompson, Maggie Smith, Ralph Fiennes all essentially wasted) and Maggie Gyllenhal is fine (although it's a mystery as to why either a-a British actress wasn't cast, or b-they didn't make her character an American in Britain - one line would have covered it), and the thinnest paint-by-numbers sequel storyline (Ms Thompson should be embarrassed) and heaps of loud, unbelievable silliness and special effects for their own sake.

If the first had one of something this one has six, because more is better right?

And not even Disney has ever dared to sanitize WWII as much as this dreck does. An enemy aircraft is actually labeled so - "Enemy Aircraft", I guess it's supposed to be funny, but it's not, it's disrespectful to those who experienced the war, but more, to those young ones watching.

Pass this one up and watch the charming first one again.

Or Mary Poppins, or Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

Very enjoyable family movie, reminiscent of Disney in earlier years. Good family fun.

Mrs. Docherty: You seem to have forgotten the way she works. When you need her but do not want her, then she must stay. When you want her, but no longer need her, then she has to go. I know from personal experience.
