Click here for the reviews.


  1. Mary Poppins of course! I liked Nanny McPhee. ( I hated Nanny Diaries I feel like she's a whiny nanny who can find a better job with respectful parents). I know I will have new favorites once the HELP comes out!

  2. Mary Poppins!

  3. Suzanne: Love this question :)Of course Mary Poppins, and then there's Alice from the Brady Bunch(I know it's not a movie but that's what I grew up watching). I'm reading The Help now and Aibileen is my favorite. And who can forget Mr. French from Family Affair 🙂 The Natural Nanny Mary Poppins! although i can sympathize with the Nanny Diaries haha Katie: Mary Poppins, she's always been a role model for me. Stephanie: Mary Poppins but do you remember Whoopie Goldberg in Corrina Corrina and Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire? Taylor Augustine Other than Mary Poppins (I like the book better, anyway), Molly Gunn in Uptown Girls. It could be that I just love Brittany Murphy, but I like the way she handles all the situations she encounters in that crazy job. Some of her interactions with the parents are spot on. Tara: I adore the movie Mary Poppins, but I usually say that I do her job with actual skills, not magic tricks. 🙂 I loved the nanny depicted in Harriet the Spy (played by Rosie O'Donnell). Diana: The sound of Music! of coarse! Sarah: Mary Poppins and Frouline Maria! Both played by Julie Andrews! 😀 Diana: I think singing and dancing is the most fun when youre a Nanny, There little eyes sparkle when you sing them a song 🙂
