  • A struggling mother receives some much-needed assistance tending to the family farm and raising a group of spirited children while her military husband is fighting overseas in this sequel to the whimsical 2005 fantasy comedy NANNY MCPHEE. Mrs. Isabel Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal) lives in a scenic valley with her two daughters and one son. They each understand the importance of working together as a family, and things are going remarkably smoothly for the rural quartet until a pair of spoiled cousins arrive for an extended stay, effectively turning the quaint little farm into a virtual zoo. As the situation quickly getting out of hand, Nannie McPhee (Emma Thompson) suddenly appears on her doorstep claiming that she can bring a much-needed sense of order to the out-of-control household. In time the mysterious helper does just that, using powerful magic to teach her young charges the importance of getting along, and gradually winning their trust in the process. But when the piglets escape from their sty, the contentious kids must work together to recover the family farm's most valued assets, or risk losing everything their father worked so hard to build before he went off to fight in the war. Rhys Ifans and Maggie Smith co-star.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Thompson may have slyly didactic intentions but she never forgets to entertain....The film weaves its spell..."
    Sight and Sound

    "Thompson, who also wrote the script, has skittery, baffling fun enjoining her plummy guest actors to play broad Brit types." -- Grade: B-
    Entertainment Weekly

    4.5 stars out of 5 -- "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."

    "Emma Thompson, who wrote and produced NANNY MCPHEE RETURNS is ideal as the mysterious nanny dispatched by the military on urgent child-rearing missions."
    USA Today
