Nanny McPhee ~ a movie review

Mr. Brown (Colin Firth) has seven very naughty children (Thomas Sangster etc.). They are so naughty, in fact, that they have driven out seventeen nannies. The only person who seems to truly love them is the scullery maid Evangeline (Kelly Macdonald). But when Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson) arrives at the Brown house, the children find that their behaviour now has magical and terrible consequences. Meanwhile, Mr. Brown is terrorized into finding a new wife by the children's Great-Aunt Adelaide (Angela Lansbury).

This movie was highly enjoyable and humorous. It is definitely one of those keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat movies, which is not what I'd expect in a family movie. It is clean and has good messages. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone.
