Movie Review: Nanny McPhee Returns
While Nanny McPhee returns is a good movie, it is not near as good as the first. Again Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson) performs magic which effects a family, and by doing so goes from being a hag to a beautiful woman. In this case father is away at war. Nanny McPhee comes into a split family, with two cousins having arrived from London. They do not get along. However Nanny McPhee repairs the rift. Uncle has need of acquiring the farm to pay off gambling debts, and so makes a case that the father is dead and the farm needs to be sold. Two of the cousins, who were enemies, must go to London to the war department to prove he is still alive. One of the cousins is the forgotten son of the general. And so it goes, they just must stall the signing to give the boys time to get back.
