The 2005 movie did well in theaters, and a sequel, ''Nanny [=McPhee=] and the Big Bang'' (called ''Nanny [=McPhee=] Returns'' in the United States for undisclosed reasons), premiered in 2010. MaggieGyllenhaal plays a beleaguered housewife juggling a farm and three children, while awaiting her husband's return from the war. With the added pressure of her brother-in-law wanting her to sell off the farm (to pay off his own gambling debts), and two upper-class cousins staying over, Nanny [=McPhee=] is needed once again. The trailer can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVOzEmywwMM here]].

* BigBrotherInstinct: As rotten as the Brown children can be, they do care about each other. For example, when Aggie's rattle was snatched away, one of her sisters comforted her and Simon demanded that Selma give it back. Also, during the kitchen scene, the other children were worried about Aggie being flung into a pot of boiling water.

* TyrantTakesTheHelm: Selma Quickly. Amusingly she says, "There are going to be changes around here.", a line made famous by Imelda Staunton as Professor Umbridge in ''Film/HarryPotter'''s own TyrantTakesTheHelm story arc while Imelda Staunton herself is playing the cook in this film. (And Emma Thompson's (Nanny [=McPhee=]) character, Professor Trelawney, was a victim of those changes.)

Cedric Brown is a hard-working widower who can't spend much time with his seven children, so he leaves them in the care of nannies. However, the children are very naughty and have managed, with pride, to scare the past seventeen nannies away. Running out of options, Mr. Brown listens to a mysterious voice's advice to call for a "Nanny [=McPhee=]". Nanny [=McPhee=] (Creator/EmmaThompson) turns out to be a hag-like woman with a crooked cane and a habit of [[StealthHiBye appearing out of nowhere]] (though she does mention she did knock). But there's a secret to her care-taking -- she has [[MagicalNanny magic powers]], which she uses to teach the children some important lessons.
