John & Becky’s Movie Review Of The Nanny Diaries

The Nanny Diaries PosterBecky and I went to see The Nanny Diaries last week at the AMC theaters in Littleton, Colorado. The Yahoo website at The Nanny Diaries describes the movie as follows:

A 21-year-old New York University student becomes a nanny to a family on the Upper East Side who turns out to be the family from hell.The story of the journey of Annie Braddock, a young woman from a working-class neighborhood in New Jersey, struggling to understand her place in the world. Fresh out of college, she gets tremendous pressure from her nurse mother to find a respectable position in the…

The Nanny Diaries is a romantic comedy starring Scarlett Johansson and Laura Linney about a young woman who takes a job as a nanny on the Upper East Side of New York City while trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. The critics didn’t like this movie very much, giving it a C rating on average, but Becky and I both enjoyed it and thought it was good flick. It was funny, sad and entertaining all rolled into one. It’s not a great flick, but it’s pretty fun.

It’s a good story about the crazy lifestyle of people with too much money and how they treat their hired help. Becky and I could relate to this flick since we’ve had nannies live in our home since our nine year old was age two.

Frankly, it was quite unbelievable to think that there are people out there, like the family with the nanny portrayed in this film, who’s priorities are so screwed up that they have no relationship with their family or other people, but are totally consumed by materialism. Laura Linney did a great job as a shallow housewife of a multi-millionaire who’s husband is having an affair and who farms out her one child to her nanny at every possible opportunity.

We both liked it and thought it was Worth The Trip and will make for a good rental, especially since it’s a cute romantic comedy with quite a bit of drama.
