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!

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!)

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.

Dude i was trying to remember the names of the movies i saw when i was about 5 or 6 real little. Back when i was a kid born in 1990 Hulk Hogan was my favorite wrestler and these movies i remember with such a fondness. It takes me back to a time when i was happy and my mom was still alive.Other than that man these to me now are great because it's like trippin' out for a little bit watching a few movies and getting soem laughs,while reminiscing. I had not remembered the names til now. Mr. Nanny i remember the best. Hulk has to be a bodyguard for a rich inventor genius who has badguys trying to get their hands on his invention. So he hides it in his daughters doll. Hogan takes to the kids in a kids but family comedy where it can be enjoyed by all. I did not really remember Suburban Commando until the second i popped it in,and like an lsd flashback i was caught up and re-introduced to an old friend. I am about to watch Suburban Commando again. If you are a kid from the 1990s or you are older than that or you dig Hulk Hogan and you know the vibe of that late 80's early 90's movie feel. They are both hilarious and entertaining. Go get em and keep a part of history before it's all disappeared.

A little bit too slapsticky comedy for my tastes yet ultimately enjoyable. Hulk Hogan takes on a whole new dimension of character as a reluctant Nanny who must tame 2 very recalcitrant, too big for their britches children. His patience and perseverence however, eventually wins them over and they are effectively able to work together to bring the children's father's nemesis to justice.

Hulk Hogan delivers in these comedy films.

Mr. Nanny and Suburban Commando have that late 80s early 90s appeal that many miss in movies these days. Yes, they have cheesy parts (maybe too many) but that just adds to the greatness.

Whatcha gonna do brother when Suburban Commando and Mr. Nanny run wild on your DVD player?

Subrbuan Commando is a dorky movie from the early 90's at its best. Was at a stop light one day, and I kid you not. ONE car got through the light. Shortest light I've ever seen in my life. It reminded me of the final of this movie and I looked it up and got it. Yeah, it's pretty lame. But, I was 8 when I watched it, and guess what. My 5, 8, and 11 year old loved it. My wife was laughing and complaining how dumb it was the entire time.

Haven't watched (and don't know if I remember) Mr. Nanny yet. But the combo pack was cheaper than buying Suburban Commando by itself.

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
