Another great family movie
on March 24, 2013
After having so much fun watching Nanny McPhee with my granddaughter the other day, we couldn't help but rent this second movie right away. Just as before, this new cast of kids are great little performers. Emma Thompson returns as Nanny McPhee, and this time Maggie Smith plays an eccentric character. There's lots of mischievousness on the part of the children, as well as their conniving uncle.
Because of Nanny McPhee's scary makeup and costume and fighting among the children, I would recommend this movie for ages 6 and up. This second movie also contains a pretty sad scene in which the mother and children gets news that the father has died in the war. It made me shed a couple of tears, so it might be a bit much for small children. Don't worry though...it has a happy ending.
These movies are full of laughs, but I also like that they actually teach some good moral lessons. I'm glad my granddaughter convinced me to watch these. I'm sure they'll be repeats on our sleepover nights.
