In “Nanny McPhee 2,” Oscar®-winning actress and screenwriter Emma Thompson returns to the role of the magical nanny who appears when she’s needed the most and wanted the least in the next chapter of the hilarious and heartwarming fable that has enchanted children around the world.
In the latest installment, Nanny McPhee appears at the door of a harried young mother, Mrs. Isabel Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal), who is trying to run the family farm while her husband is away at war. But once she’s arrived, Nanny McPhee discovers that Mrs. Green’s children are fighting a war of their own against two spoiled city cousins who have just moved in and refuse to leave.
Relying on everything from a flying motorcycle and a statue that comes to life to a tree-climbing piglet and a baby elephant who turns up in the oddest places, Nanny McPhee uses her magic to teach her mischievous charges five new lessons.

1. Review by Caydon Stanley
I saw Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang yesterday and it was even better than the first movie. It had more tricks and laughs and most important, lessons to be learnt. Little children tended to jump at the loud and sudden sounds but that was forgotten quickly as the movie carries you into the next exciting scene. There was lots of mud and getting dirty which the city cousins hated. All’swell that ends well. I give it a 5* rating.
2. Review by Deolinda Da Silva
Everyone loves Nanny McPhee. Children look at this movie and see boundaries. Moms like me, say “I need Nanny McPhee”. I came out of the movie, saying “Nanny McPhee, we need you!”. Yes, it was somewhat predictable, but Emma Thompson is still amazing in her role as the strict governess who reigns with her “wooden” rod. Good for a laugh and fun to watch the kids reaction throughout.

We found this movie to resonate old worlde charm with a touch of magic and mystique.Its every day humour highlights the enduring principles portrayed and the elements of fantasy make the audience feel part of the characters’ world!
5. Review by 9 yr old Rachel Edelstein
I saw Nanny McPhee last night. It was a really funny movie and I got a lot of laughs out of it! As Nanny McPhee says, “when you need me but do not want me I must stay, but when you want me but no longer need me then I must go” . Therefore this is a new generation of the same family who need her help. One of the parts I thought was hilarious was when Miss Topsy and Miss Turvy threatened to “stuff” Phil, the kids’ uncle, if he didn’t sell the farm. Ew! I couldn’t help myself from packing out laughing!!!
