I Can’t Wait: Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang

Chick 1 says:nannympheebigbang2

Loved, loved, loved Nanny McPhee!  The perfect blend of whimsy, humor, naughty children, and romance.    Emma Thompson adapted the screenplay from a children’s book and also starred. 

She returns as producer, writer, and star for Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang.  The sequel also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Maggie Smith (2 good Maggies), Ralph Fiennes, and Rhys Ifans.  Great cast but I can’t decide from the trailer how this one is shaping up.  Of course, I wasn’t sure about the the first one and it’s one of my favorites.

Review: Stranger than Fiction

In honor of April 15th, I’m posting this review of Stranger than Fiction.  I’ve not viewed it recently but I own it & it’s one of my favorites.  If you’ve already completed your mad dash to the post office, swing by the video store & pick up a copy.  Or come by my apartment & borrow mine.  I’ll be watching Lost.   Sshhh.  No talking.
