Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang

Family . Comedy . Fantasy

Nanny McPhee appears at the door of a harried young mother, Mrs. Isabel Green, who is trying to run the family farm while her husband is away at war. But once she’s arrived, Nanny McPhee discovers that the children are fighting a war of their own against two spoiled city cousins who have just moved in. Relying on everything from a flying motorcycle and a statue that comes to life to a tree-climbing piglet and a baby elephant, Nanny uses her magic to teach her mischievous charges five new lessons.

More Info:
  • Keith Uhlich

    Thompson's imagination-she's also the screenwriter-knows no bounds, and she does a brilliant job of connecting the fantastical elements to the sobering realities of life during wartime.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Glenn Whipp

    The animals are impossibly adorable, but never threaten to upset the film's delicate balance between magic and a more sobering reality. It's a fairy tale in the best tradition.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    At its best, Nanny McPhee Returns has the playful surrealism of "Babe," if "Babe" had been directed by Terry Gilliam.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Has a lighter spirit than its predecessor, but it arrives at the same warm and touching place.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Ultimately, the performances carry the film.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Sweet, sentimental, silly and star-studded, Nanny McPhee Returns is one of the best children's movies of the year.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Charles Williams

    Weighty issues such as war and divorce are mentioned, but the serious themes pass quickly. The lighthearted story always takes precedent over the special effects, but a scene involving swimming piglets will have kids flashing a sea of smiles.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    James Newton Howard's music picks up its comic cues perhaps a bit too swiftly and loudly, but little of this detracts from the movie's many pleasures.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The results of her work are predictable yet pleasantly played out.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Pam Grady

    This comic fantasy will delight kids and parents alike.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Thompson, who also wrote the script, has skittery, baffling fun enjoining her plummy guest actors (including Ralph Fiennes, Rhys Ifans, and Maggie Smith) to play broad Brit types.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The end result, while entertaining, is the kind of unruly mess you can't imagine the indomitable Nanny McPhee tolerating.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    It can take a miracle to create a movie that's fun for kids and their parents. Luckily, Nanny McPhee has a little magic up her sleeve.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    With flying pigs and magical nannying, this will charm children - but it could have been a little more charming for adults.

    Empire Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Nanny McPhee, the homely yet exemplary governess, is back. Why? Hard to say, but one thing is certain: Writer-star Emma Thompson didn't do it for the kids.

    NPR Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Too much of the contrasting comedy in Nanny McPhee Returns is shrill, laden with routine computer-generated effects and pounded into dust by James Newton Howard's shut-up-already musical score.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Pigs fly and perform a Busby Berkeley-style water ballet. Maggie Gyllenhaal sports a posh British accent. Everybody steps in dung repeatedly. These are the high points of Nanny McPhee Returns.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    The initial close-up of Thompson - all sourly snaggletoothed and begoggled - is as funny as anything in the original. And just that one quick glimpse would have been perfect.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    She could stand to learn a lesson herself, from another magical governess -- you know, the one about the spoon full of sugar.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    For American children, Nanny McPhee Returns may seem something like a foreign film, but the movie has enough spoonfuls of sugar to make the Britishisms go down.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    Neither the dangers of the plot - a dissolute uncle who wants to sell the farm, a father missing in action - nor the forbidding Nanny McPhee herself are as fearsome as they were the first time around.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    On balance, more dignity is lost than gained.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    McPhee's latest saga neither conjures the humanistic heart of "Babe" nor addresses father-son separation issues with the sobriety of "The Water Horse." Instead, it's merely a compendium of photocopied elements, cartoonish special effects, and easy-bake happily-ever-afters.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This children's entertainment-grownups beware!-is preoccupied by squishy stuff that includes mud and poop, as well as by syrup that oozes from cabinet drawers.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    This dour, hyperactive family film is joyless, overly busy and starchy.
