Plot Summary: "The Nanny Diaries" tells the story of the emotional and often humorous journey of Annie Braddock (Johansson), a young woman from a working-class neighborhood in New Jersey, struggling to understand her place in the world. Fresh out of college, she gets tremendous pressure from her nurse mother to find a respectable position in the business world although Annie would prefer to trade in her blackberry for an anthropologist's field diary. Through a serendipitous meeting, Annie ends up in the elite and ritualistic culture of Manhattan's Upper East Side -- as remote from Annie's suburban New Jersey upbringing as life in an Amazon tribal village. Choosing to duck out of real life, Annie accepts the position as a nanny for a wealthy family, referred to as simply "the X's." She quickly learns that life is not very rosy on the other side of the tax bracket, as she must cater to the every whim of Mrs. X (Linney) and her precocious son Grayer, while attempting to avoid the formidable Mr. X (Giamatti). Life becomes even more complicated when Annie falls for a gorgeous Park Avenue Hottie (Evans), and she's forced to explore her identity as never before

EN 5 Second Review: If you read the book, this is one movie that will piss you off, if not, you can put it aside anyway. It's that rare chick flick that even chicks won't like.

The unfaithful film adaptation so undermines the novel's spiky social satire that it constitutes some kind of aesthetic crime
Colin Covert: Minneapolis Star Tribune
The film dumbs down the story while cutesifying it. Scarlett Johansson plays Annie, a gawky Jersey girl just out of college and torn between careers in anthropology and finance...more

An irresistible guilty pleasure
Josh Larsen: Sun Publications
If you've ever rushed your kids from preschool to swimming lessons while a granola bar in the car serves as lunch for everyone along the way, this will be an irresistible guilty pleasure...more

It sounds like the ultimate chick flick with crossover potential -- Scarlett Johansson learning a lot about life and a little about love in a film based on a cornerstone of chick lit -- but not even chicks will get much out of The Nanny Diaries
Bill Goodykoontz: Arizona Republic
The Nanny Diaries aims to be many things at once - comedy, cultural critique, sharp object aimed at the puffed-up balloon that is Upper East Side family life - but winds up falling flat on all counts...more
