This movie was very entertaining. Funny, serious and am supposedly thinking that this goes on in real life.

Cute story based on a novel that was written by two former nannies. Overall, I enjoyed the acting and the themes of the story....some parts were pretty funny, too.

More a peek into and critique of the Upper East Side NYC world and problems of the idle trophy wives who whine if they get divorced and receive only a million dollar settlement. Difficult to empathize with the plot, although the husband does a nicely chilling job of a Jekyll/Hyde personality. Scarlett Johanssen does her best with a difficult role in pretending to be far less than she is.

Very funny. But wouldn’t recommend it for kids. But I also didn’t read the book.

I could not get into the book, but this is one of my favorite mindless movies.

Based on the book "The Nanny Diaries" by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus.

The bonus interview with the authors is even more interesting than the film.
I wish that I had watched it first !

I'd thought that the script was all made-up and steriotyped fiction,.. but it's actually been synthesized from years of experience and intelligent, but sympathetic, observation !!

I had to skip a few chapters of the movie near the end due to the disk skipping.

Comedy-drama about a disheartened young college grad who takes up work as a nanny for a rich New York family and learns about the oddness and pettiness within that wealthy sub-culture and the neglect of its privileged children. All while trying to hide her job from her proud working mother and her attraction to a handsome, friendly neighbour from her demanding employer. Good fun with a serious note, presented by the main character as an anthropological study. Kind of reminiscent of Bridget Jones's Diary, but focused more on finding one's path than on romance.

I much preferred the book to the movie.
