This English movie covers ground thats so well trod that it looks like Melanie Griffiths face. A vicar (Rowan Atkinson)whose wife (Kristin Scott Thomas) is leaving him, whose daughter is slutting around and whose son is being bulliedis oblivious to the disintegration of his family. Then, a magical nanny (Maggie Smith) appears and begins to make everything right. So right, in fact, that Kristin Scott Thomas has to utter the line, My sons rid of his bullies; my husbands become a comedian, and my nymphomaniac daughters discovered cookery. Whats going on? Well, not enough that its worth you making an expository speech with no one present. The one twist in this film is that it takes a very casual attitude toward murder. That would make sense in a black comedy, but since there are no laughs in this film, I have to assume that its not a comedy; its a heartwarming family film. So I guess it introduces a new genre: the black, heartwarming family film which posits murder as a reasonably viable option for keeping a family together. Now, if it was only entertaining, itd be great. Also starring Patrick Swayze as a parody of Patrick Swayze.
