A slight entertainment: nothing offensive, nothing great. Emma Thompson stars as the title character, a magical nanny who arrives to deal with Colin Firth’s obnoxious children. She teaches them various lessons while dad attempts to save his family by becoming engaged to the most horridly fabulous woman imaginable (Celia Imrie, shining as Mrs. Quickly). Kelly MacDonald is very sweet as the family’s maid and Angela Landsbury is great as domineering Aunt Adelaide. The costuming is very silly and period-esque — they were trying for 1880s-ish, but definitely having fun with it (see Mrs. Quickly’s outstanding wardrobe). Worth a watch on cable, but I really wouldn’t spend too much money on it (again, not bad, but not terribly special either).
