Movie Night – Nanny McPhee Returns

I wasn’t very excited about seeing this movie as the previews showed it was the same formula as the first, but I did like the first so I put my criticism of the movie on the shelf.

Summary: Nanny McPhee comes to the aid of a woman and her children who are hounded by a greedy relative and two bratty cousins. It had all the wonderment and funny moments that made the first one so enjoyable, but it wasn’t until near the end that it was ruined.

In order for a movie to be a success, it has to ‘suspend belief’, which simply means, whatever is going happening on the screen, it must be believable, no matter how outrageous. Pigs flying? Not a problem, A baby elephant walking into a room without being seen, sneaking between the two adults with its trunk and taking things off the table without the adults seeing, and walking out? Problem.

And at that point, my belief in the movie was shattered. Whoever suggested the elephant, was way off on this one, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this one thing turned at a lot of people off the movie as well.
