Editorial Reviews

Larger-than-life WWF Star Hulk Hogan (Suburban Commando, Rocky 3) is a bumbling bodyguard-turned-babysitter in this uproarious, laugh-packed action-comedy for the entire family!

Thinking his manager has found him a bodyguard job, former pro-wrestler Sean Armstrong is horrified to learn he's been hired to watch over two nanny-hating kids. But even more dangerous than the kids' Home Alone-style booby traps is a Top-secret Peacekeeper ray-gun invented by the kid's genius father. It's sheer household hilarity as the children and their behemoth babysitter team up to thwart the villain, save the world and learn some heartwarming lessons about friendship in . . . Mr. Nanny!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good not great, read the book instead June 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
While I certainly believe that Hulk Hogan has screen presence surpassed only by a select few, this was a project that was somewhat troubled from the beginning. Hogan shows his full theatrical arsenal as Sean Armstrong in this adaptation of "Mr. Nanny" but the end result comes up a bit short.
Creating a screen translation of William Burroughs' brilliantly intricate novel was a daunting task, and while the effort put forth in writing "Mr. Nanny" for the screen by Michael Gottlieb (who also directs) and Edward Rugoff was a noble one, it still falls short of Burroughs' wild vision. Burroughs himself, a key uncredited contributor to the film, was opposed to key casting decision. For instance, Gottlieb had his heart set on Sherman Helmsley for the role of Burt Wilson, Armstrong's manager. Burroughs remarked that Helmsley's work in the TV series "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons" was nothing more than "visual flatulence," and he insisted on Sinbad taking that role to no avail.
There was also the problem of toning down the frequent drug use and phallic imagery so prevalent in Burroughs' novel. While I agree that it would have been difficult to capture that particular essence of the book, I do believe that the writers could have done better than merely showing the villainous Thanatos (David Johansen) smoking marijuana while reading a copy of OUT magazine. This doesn't exactly capture the paranoid and druggily fantastic "wild boys" motif of the novel. Hogan does provide a certain degree of screen heat, but he can't do it alone.
There are certain elements in this translation that I did enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Nanny Rules! August 22, 2004
By Zulrath
Format:VHS Tape
What can I say, Christians have their bible, and I have Mr. Nanny. This has to be one of the greatest movies ever made. It takes the "AMAZING" acting skills of Hulk Hogan (the GREATEST wrestler of all time) with a plot that's undeniably sidsplittingly funny and you have a winner. The story is basically about how Hulk was at the top of the mountain in the wrestling world when one day, everything fell apart. While walking through the valley of the shadow of death, he winds up getting the job of Nanny for some problem children. Will Hulk get his wrestling career back on top? Will he turn these kids around? Buy it and find out! (As an added bonus, you get to see Hulk in a tutu!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Czos Review May 3, 2004
Format:DVD
Mr. Nanny starring Hulk Hogan is quite literally so stupid it is funny. Really bad acting and a totally off the wall storyline make this worth viewing. If you like movies that you think are so bad their good you will like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hulk Hogan Collection December 2, 2007
By Sunspot
Format:DVD
I watched these films when i was a little kid and loved them, Hulk Hogan was my hero. They are cheesy as hell, if you don't like that then i would not get these. Now if you think Hulk Hogan is a god like I do, then buy these fast. The only problem is they are Fullscreen, but does it really matter with these movies?

5.0 out of 5 stars A blockbuster hit May 10, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie is such a masterpiece. My favorite part is after the credits when Hulk Hogan is playing guitar wearing an American flag cape, but everything before that point is almost as good. Every time Hulk Hogan punches someone (about every five minutes) there's a whistle sound effect. Outstanding! This movie shows that Hulk Hogan has a sensitive side to him while still being able beat evil doers/zombies/Sinbad into submission. I used to watch this every day and get really angry because it was so good.

But you have the get the DVD of this movie! The theatrical version is awesome enough by itself, but the DVD has some great easter eggs. In the cut version of the movie, Hulk Hogan is from outer space and lands on earth after crash landing. He has special powers like the ability to burrow underneath the ground and pop up behind his enemies. If you like cinema, you'll love Mr. Nanny.

3.0 out of 5 stars AN OK MOVIE FROM THE HULKSTER August 14, 2004
Format:DVD
A FORMER WRESTLER [HULK HOGAN] TAKES A JOB BABYSITTING A RICH MAN'S KIDS WHO HAVE MADE EVERY OTHER BABYSITTER THEY EVER HAD QUIT THE JOB. FUNNY AT TIMES, BUT NOT ALWAYS ENTERTAINING. THIS IS AN OK MOVIE TO WATCH IF YOU'RE LOOKING AT TV WITH YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY OR IF YOU NEED A GOOD LAUGH. HOGAN DOESN'T DO TOO BAD IN THIS ONE.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome movie March 5, 2013
Format:DVD
this is an awesome movie I'd consider it a family movie even though the kids in it are pretty disrespectful but that's pretty much how they are now days but there's no nude scenes or anything like that I'd watch it again but if you have young kids I'd watch it without them first then decide if it's suitable for them to watch

3.0 out of 5 stars Kids Get The Babysitter, Mother Love Never Fails August 17, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
C'mon now, it's a kid's movie. And for the elementary school kid there is no better fantasy than a dream of revenge against the babysitter. For its target audience, there is no disappointment here. Hulk is the retired grappler turned unwilling nanny for spoiled but lovable kids and quickly falls foil to their tricks and traps. Then, of course, they are kidnapped by the evil and campy Buster Poindexter (who is just divine as a criminal with a steel plated cranium) and only the big man can save the day. Radio host and author Mother Love steals the scenes she has as the maid who tolerates Hulk. Some interesting side notes to this film are as follows: the lair of Poindexter which contains a torturous "poison pool" was shot on the same soundstage as the original "Flipper" series in Miami and the floor was rolled back for the first time in years to accommodate the production. Not used to the opening in the floor, the crew members continually fell into the water during shooting. The part of the first nanny who exits the house screaming with her hair on fire is played by the assistant production coordinator who was the only person available and willing to get lit up at the time. The soundstage and offices were so busy due to the heavy production schedule that the production office actually occupied a small extra stage and the black and white opening of the film, which is a wrestling dream sequence had to be shot inside the same space, requiring the office staff to move all desks, phones, copiers and fax machines to the edges of the room and work quietly during filming. Look for wrestling legend George "The Animal" Steele (also in "Ed Wood") in the same scene, emoting the famous dialogue "Hey. You. Nice."
