TAB Review: Nanny McPhee

The movie, Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson), is the story about seven naughty children who do not use simple manners such as saying "please" and "thank you" and do not behave well with adults. These seven children of Mr. Cedric Brown are the hardest bunch to handle and have made 17 nannies leave their jobs. Cedric Brown loves his children but does not spend as much time with them as he did when his wife was alive. Soon, Nanny McPhee comes into their home and changes everything about the children. After Nanny McPhee comes in, the children start going to bed on time, get up from bed on time, and learn there manners. These children, who meant trouble, are turning into sweet, loving little children. This movie shows how seven of the brattiest children are soon willing to listen to Nanny McPhee, and others, because they do not want to accept the consequences of not doing so.
