The Nanny Diaries

In case you have a soft spot for chick flicks, I would recommend you skip The Nanny Diaries. They tried for magical (as in modern day Mary Poppins without the carpetbag) and failed. It's only redeeming quality was in the narrative presentation as an anthropological field guide. I had never read the book but it's my understanding that it was written as such. Nonetheless, Scarlett Johansson such a talented actress, like movie stars back in the '40s sultry and strong ought to have picked a better role to engage in for this summer film viewing. I imagine playing Annie the Nanny will do nothing for her career; I only hope that it paid well or at the very least enough to increase her rate quota per motion picture.
