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.

This film is set in the 1940s and features a family who live on a farm, whose father is away in the war. Isabel (Maggie Gyllenhaal), is a stressed mother of three, expecting a niece and nephew as evacuees. They turn out to be spoiled and snooty, and sparks fly until Nanny McPhee arrives and treats the children to her rather coercive style of ‘teaching’.

The whole thing is caricatured, with slapstick humour and a predictable (if satisfactory) ending. Isabel’s brother-in-law Phil (Rhys Ifans) makes an over-the-top villain who wants to force her into selling the farm so he can repay his debts. And there’s a delightful cameo role by Maggie Smith as Mrs Docherty, the elderly and scatty Mrs Docherty.

The star is officially Emma Thompson in the title role, but she seems little different from the first DVD. We thought that the children were the real stars, with good on-screen rapport and (almost) believable relationships. There's some poignancy as well as humour, and their gradual acceptance of each other - along with courage and faith - is what lifts this film above the average.

The action is well-paced, the dialogue good, and some quite tense scenes (at least from an adult perspective) played out nicely. The rating is U, presumably because there’s nothing specific that would trigger a higher rating, but I’d see this more as a PG: there are a few scenes that could scare a sensitive child.

Overall we thought this a good sequel. Note that it's marketed in the US as 'Nanny McPhee returns'.

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
