Product Description

Johansson/Linney/Giamatti ~ Nanny Diaries

From Amazon.co.uk

Based on the best-selling book of the same name, the film version of The Nanny Diaries is a chick flick, but it lacks the witty tone of the novel, which took time to flesh out the characters. The tone is set early on when the narrator notes, "In Africa they have the saying: 'It takes a village to raise a child.' But for the tribe of the Upper Eastside of Manhattan, it takes just one person: the nanny." Recent college graduate Annie Braddock (a brunette Scarlett Johansson) becomes the nanny for Mr. and Mrs. X, a narcissistic and selfish couple who have no clue that what their precocious son Grayer really needs is a mum and a dad who will pay attention to him. At first, Annie can't believe her good fortune. Caring for Grayer a few hours each day in the X's luxurious apartment seems like a dream job. But as her job turns into a 24/7 nightmare, she loses her identity and becomes Nanny. Annie's attempts to befriend her oddly charismatic boss are met with rebuffs by Mrs. X (Laura Linney). When Annie mentions her home life, Mrs. X is stunned. "Nanny, you never mentioned you had a mother," she says, as if she expected that nannies were shot out of giant pods. Despite the film's flaws, Linney is a standout. Like Meryl Streep, who made an unlikeable character sympathetic in The Devils Wears Prada, Linney brings humour to her role. Unfortunately, Paul Giamatti (as the philandering Mr. X) and singer Alicia Keys (as Annie's best friend Lynette) are wasted in their thankless roles. While we are meant to feel sorry for Annie, we are left wondering why a beautiful and educated young woman would allow herself to be manipulated into working ridiculous hours for less than minimum-wage pay. When Annie finally does stand up to her employers, it's a little too late. For everyone. --Jae-Ha Kim --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
I rented this movie not expecting to enjoy it, due to the fact that the role of leading lady Annie was left to Scarlett Johanssen- an actress who I have usually taken to disliking from seeing her in other, less favourable roles. However, after reading and enjoying the book I wanted to give it a go and was left surprsingly pleased. "The Nanny Diaries" is a pleasant enough film, most likely to appeal to an audience who enjoyed films such as "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Sweet Home Alabama". It provides touching moments throughout, mainly seen through the sweet friendship formed between Annie and Grayer- the young child who is left in her care everyday by the rich Mrs X (played fabulously by Laura Linney). It also maintains its title as a comedy well, with a few moments causing me to laugh out loud. Over-all I would recommend The Nanny Diaries to people looking for an entertaining, light film and also to those, who like me, beforehand may not have always been a fan of Scarlett Johanssen.

Being a fan of Scarlett Johansson I had high hopes for this movie, and I wasn't disappointed. It was entertaining and just something nice and sweet to watch on a Sunday afternoon, even if some scenes were a bit depressing. Sure it wasn't going to win any Oscars, but who cares? Not every film has to be a masterpiece and Oscar-worthy. I have to admit the little boy was quite annoying and not very cute but you really couldn't help but feel for him being ignored by his parents all the time, especially when Annie (Scarlett Johansson) is forced to leave him for being an 'un fit Nanny' despite being the only capable person to look after him since his own parents don't seem very bothered.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this film but I did really enjoy it. I could totally relate to the fresh out of college situation that Annie found herself in, unsure of how to live her future. I really enjoyed watching her settle in to the turbulent and rocky house and strike up a loving friendship with the little boy, whose image obsessed mother and work obsessed father have other more important activities to attend to instead of their son growing up. Scarlett Johansson is brilliant in some films (The Girl with the Pearl Earring, Ghost World), and I'm pleased to see her take on a role that suits her acting style.

Charming, funny, sophisticated. Extremely well-acted. Mrs X must be one of Laura Linney's best performances. Alpha-plus.

As always no problems with the service, the disk arrived fast in great condition, and it's a good film starring actors who work well together, while poking fun at high society in a way that it's impossible not to enjoy.

This movie is hilarious, I used to be a nanny for a rich (LOADED!) american family and this is exactly how things went down. So true to life it's almost sad.

Laura Linney was amazing as always! I really like all her characters in every movie she had! GREAT actress!!!
Wish I could say the same about Scarlett Johanson. But I dont want to hurt her because ... I like her but as an actess.. I think she is not as talented as Hollywood think she is. Good looking for sure!! I watch her since her teens so I am not afraid to say-she has one way to portrait all her characters... What a shame!!
I dont know the name of that man who played the father (my shame...) but he was amazing too!!
The movie was very entertaining. Nothing heavy to digest. Sweet little movie. Easy to forget.
