Where a young woman is working her way through school to be a teacher while volunteering to tutor at her church. Her father is very ill she lives with him, they have a great father daughter relationship. After she loses one of her jobs she finds a nanny position with a family where the kids need loads of TLC...
Great story...the father of the Nanny makes it a point to always tell his daughter that he "Loves her as big as the sky"...
This is the type of quality I've come to associate with the Hallmark name over the years.
She has the same pranks pulled on her that 9-year-old Ben and 15-year-old Emily played on all of their other victims, but she needs the job, so she sticks with it. She also sees in Emily the shadows of her own past and hopes that she will be able to help her. Ben begins to thaw toward her, but Emily remains cold and disdainful. This is the hardest part of this movie for me. The father seems completely clueless as to how to teach his daughter to show respect to others. She continually treats the nanny in demeaning ways and the father witnesses it and does little or nothing, other than apologize to Kate for her behavior. It is as if the death of her mother three years ago excuses her from accountability for her actions.
David Chandler is so grateful that Kate has stayed that when he finds himself attracted to her he hesitates to show it
for fear that things might not work out between them and then he will have lost the only nanny that stayed more than a day. Kate is attracted to him, but isn't sure of his feelings at first.
Emily is aware of what is happening between her father and Kate and she does her best to sabatoge the relationship. It appears that she is successful.Read more ›
My wife and I decided to sit this one through, and yes, of course, you pretty much know what's going to happen from start to finish. A young teacher to be takes a nanny position from a rich, handsome guy(Can there be any other type?)widower who has two bratty children. This is lighthearted fair, but with a couple dramatic elements, basically dealing with the death of one's parents. Also, I wouldn't call it a true romantic comedy because the protaganist don't spend the first half of the movie hating/fighting with one another; nonetheless, a potential romance ensues.
Two of my favorite, stalwart actors perform well in their small but important roles: Dean Stockwell as the nanny's 'hanging-on-to-his-last-gasp', loving father and Stacy Keach as the tad potbellied, sympathetic, wise minister. I love these guys, they act without acting!
Produced by Faith and Family Entertainment, they live up to their name. It's clean, and the story gently stresses faith in God, seeing things through, and love.
My one complaint, they do play the music non-stop through the movie, but thankfully, it's not has syrupy as most. You know, it's difficult to make a fully balanced movie, and I think more so with family fare, and have all the elements work well.
If you need a bit more meat, bite or uncertainty in a flick, you're not going to like this one, but for us and for this type of genre, we found it satisfying. Also, there's no nasty people or words, enjoy a few smiles and tears.
Now if we can only get Elevator Girl on dvd...hint hint Hallmark.
