He is hired by a rich professor (Austin Pendleton) to supervise his children, but the wrestler finds that the kids are more than he bargained for. An evil scientist (David Johansen, aka Buster Poindexter) decides to kidnap the professor's children as a blackmail scheme to gain control of a microchip capable of taking over the world.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Hogan] doesn't take himself too seriously either, which could prove his downfall - that and excruciating movies like this."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"In its cynical blending of children, superstar, guns and comedy, Kindergarten Cop was execrable, but it was slick. Mr. Nanny isn't slick, it's sticky."
‑ Jane Horwitz, Washington Post
"When the lasting image of Mr. Nanny is Hulk Hogan in a tutu, it's not a pleasant thought."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"A silly kiddie flick that retreads territory better covered by Mr. Mom, Home Alone and any number of clones."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"No one goes to see a Hulk Hogan movie for cutting-edge moviemaking, and Mr. Nanny will be no exception."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Variety
"Mr. Nanny is of little interest to any audience other than pre-teens."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Hogan gave better performances in the ring"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"The plot in Mr. Nanny is flimsy, mostly tenuous excuses for making Hogan kiss a doll or sing a lullaby or dress in purple leotards and pink tutu while whomping on the bad guys."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"One of the most monstrously agonizing motion pictures to come along this year. By comparison, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot is actually watchable."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"It's too back that wrestling icon Hulk Hogan didn't know how to apply a choke hold to this lethargic and lightweight romp. An unintentional and embarrassing misstep"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"The cinematic equivalent of garden shears in the eyeballs."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
