YMMV / The Nanny Diaries

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Annie is dressed as Betsy Ross in a red, white and blue dress for the Fourth of July and Harvard Hottie comes along and teases her. Harvard being played by Scarlett's future The Avengers co-star Chris Evans who plays Captain America and spends most of that film in a costume in the colors of the American flag! More specifically, Chris Evans, dressed in black, telling Scarlett Johansson in red, white, and blue that "it's very patriotic". The situation is reversed in The Avengers.
  • Moment of Awesome: Annie's "The Reason You Suck" Speech delivered to Mr. and Mrs. X via the nannycam which Mrs. X thinks Annie doesn't know about - until she plays the most recent recording at a meeting of other privileged nanny-employers and finds the "parting gift" Annie left her before she was fired.
  • Jerkass Woobie : Chalk it up to Laura Linney 's acting. You can't help but feel bad for the poor woman, as she tries desperately to hold onto her Jerk Ass husband, and fall apart during Annie's speech.
