* BaitAndSwitch: In the sequel, when Celia refuses to go out to help catching piglets in the mud, at first it seems to her (and us) that Nanny McPhee's going to force her to go outside with magic...then she just holds up a pair of wellingtons.

** In the sequel. One of the city kids deliberately takes a jar of jam the farm kids had created by saving their sugar rations for months, and wanted to have the first taste with their DisappearedDad. And it breaks. They go justifiably postal.

The 2005 movie did well in theaters, and a sequel, ''Nanny [=McPhee=] and the Big Bang'' (called ''Nanny [=McPhee=] Returns'' in the United States), 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]].

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Half of the madness that the Brown children cause in the first film probably wouldn't have happened if Cedric had just been honest with them about the financial troubles. He admits as much after Mrs. Quickly agrees to marry him.

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=] 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.
