The whole family enjoyed this - each laughing in different places as different aspects were appreciated by different age groups. A touch of Fantasia in the synchronised piglets - adorable. Particularly well written and set in 1940s with nods to the Famous Five 'lashings of ginger beer' and the derring-do of Wallace And Gromit style chases in motocycle and sidecar. We all loved it, and if you're looking for a DVD for Christmas viewing when all the family are together - this is it.

This is a review of the standard-def DVD released 19th July 2010

Five years on from the original film, this sequel sees Emma Thompson again play the part of the mysterious nanny who appears when she's needed the most and wanted the least. This time she finds herself on a family farm set during World War 2, and mayhem has broken out between some boisterous country children and their spoilt city cousins who have been sent away for their own protection. Nanny McPhee is there to help bring some peace for Mrs Green, who is the mother of the three country kids and aunt to the two others. Using such aids as a flying motorcycle and a tree-climbing piglet, Nanny McPhee conjures up just the right formula to teach the children five new lessons.

While my children thought this was as good as the first film, I thought it lacked some of the colour and cartoonish appeal its predecessor had, due in no small part to the characters who are missing this time round. Colin Firth was outstanding in the earlier film, but his equivalent in this tale, Rhys Ifans, lacks the comic subtleties that appeal to young and old alike. As a story it's quite good, and efforts have been made to include a little more of everything - particularly animals and birds - but despite good production design it still feels slightly disappointing, the overall concept too similar without any really new ground being covered. But the primary target audience is primary school children and my own expert offspring have already passed judgement and have decided that the sequel is every bit as good as the first.

Set in 1940's Britain, this story follows 5 naughty children who require lessons from the magical Nanny Mcphee, a kind hearted yet strict nanny who will not tolerate any rude or unacceptable behavior. Emma Thompson plays the role of Nanny Mcphee.

All the acting is wonderful throughout the film, particularly by the children. One particular line had me and my family in stitches, 'we are in the land of poo.' Utterly brilliant.

It's very different from the first Nanny Mcphee and I actually prefer this one better, perhaps because I love the 1940's era (clothes, music etc).

Brill for children and adults, a real family film.

I was watching TV when this film came on and found that I just had to keep watching. It's a feel good film. Rhys Ifans is very charismatic and watchable and the rest of the cast are excellent - sometimes when children are involved this isn't always the case - but they are great. There are no dull moments and the section with the piglets (without going into detail and spoiling it) is priceless. I then bought a copy and sent it to my daughter for my granddaughter and they both loved it.

The second Nanny McPhee movie varies very little from the format of the first. A parent living on their own struggles to cope with a number of "high spirited" children. A magical Nanny appears uninvited to teach the children a few lessons about socially acceptable behaviour, gradually improving her physical appearance as each lesson is learned.

This time Maggie Gyllenhal is the stressed parent. Her husband is fighting in the war and she struggles to run the farm, especially with debt ridden brother-in-law Rhys Ifans trying to persuade her to sell the farm.

Happily this time the children aren't as annoying as in the first film. They are very helpful around the farm but do not get on with their two visiting posh cousins. Thankfully Nanny McPhee teaches them the benefits of everyone getting along together.

Written by Emma Thompson the young ones will enjoy the slapstick and chase scenes but adults who have seen the first film may find it a bit repetitive. The acting is generally good. Ms. Gyllenhal's English accent is excellent though her acting veers towards the shrill at times.

An enjoyable if unoriginal children's film

Great family entertainment that even had hard-of-heart-old-Taxi-Driver-loving me weeping at the end (especially the reference to the first film!). My 3 and a half year old LOVED the first one and watched it OVER and OVER again. This isnt as good but still a heartening old bag of fun all the same. However, this one went slightly more over the head of my daughter with some more 'adult' references like wars, class etc. Too hard to explain to a 3 year old what a war is really! But as in the first one, great performances all round and some inspired casting (Bill Bailey, Rhys Ifans). Perfect for keeping the kids quiet during the summer. I really hope they continue making more Nanny McPhee films. I am definately a (secret) fan. Give in and ENJOY.
