A fresh brood of troublesome brats get the tough love treatment from Nanny McPhee in the second outing of Emma Thompson's rich creation. Things aren't good down on the farm - flustered mom Maggie Gyllenhaal is trying to hold it together for her three precocious kids. Her soldier husband is at the front and her posh niece and nephew make it plain they're not happy to be there after being evacuated from war-torn London. As the chorus of pots and pans keep saying: "You need Nanny McPhee". It's a superior kids' film, happily devoid of sentimentality and touching on real issues amid the mayhem.
