Consensus: Emma Thompson's second labor of love with the Nanny McPhee character actually improves on the first, delivering charming family fare with an excellent cast.

A delightful family movie, filled with frolicking farm animals, flying motorcycles and life lessons worth remembering.

The child actors are so funny that even the stalest jokes seem fresh.

The nursery rhyme names, lashings of ginger beer and a motorbike and sidecar trip to London ... would have liked it will have the killjoys claiming the film is seasoned to American taste but I found it utterly charming.

Cute. Nowhere near as good as the first.

She may not be as charming and polished as Mary Poppins, but Nanny McPhee is every bit as needed and loved by those in her charge, even if they don't know… More

Not as good as the first one. And how did she get hideous again? They should have left the movie at part one instead of making a boring sequel to it.
