[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nanny.jpeg]]

Added DiffLines:

* CoolBigSis: Annie eventually becomes this to Grayer.


Added DiffLines:

* LoveAtFirstSight: Annie is immediately smitten when she meets "Harvard Hottie".
* MeetCute: Annie meets her love interest, Hayden, when she's bending over ''and'' has her GoofyPrintUnderwear panties exposed. It doesn't get much more embarrassing than that.
* NiceGuy: "Harvard Hottie" (or Hayden, as his real name turns out to be), is an overall decent guy and something of a CoolBigBro to Grayer.


Added DiffLines:

* ParentalNeglect: [[spoiler: Turns out that Grayer's parents are incredibly absent in his life, which culminates into his uncontrollable attitude.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ShipperOnDeck: Lynette ''totally'' encourages Annie to go out with Harvard Hottie, and damn the expense.
* SpoiledBrat: Subverted with Grayer who is initially quite the handful for Annie. However, it's later revealed that he's really a [[SpoiledSweet sweet]] kid who has severe ParentalIssues.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler: After getting a well-deserved TheReasonYouSuckSpeech from Annie, Mrs. X finally sees the error of her ways, leaves Mr. X, and finally starts to spend quality time with her son, something that greatly improves both of their lives. She even expresses personal gratitude to Annie for making it possible.]]


* ShoutOut: To MaryPoppins, several times. Obviously with the umbrella flight, less so with Annie's ringtone, the {{leitmotif}}s of Annie and Grayer, and the trip to Central Park.

Added DiffLines:

* PantsPullingPrank: At one point Annie challenges Grayer to a race, only for him to respond by pantsing her in order to get a head-start. See GoofyPrintUnderwear above.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: The movie ends on a happy note with most of the cast making an effort to improve themselves. The book, on the other hand, is followed by a sequel that depicts the X family stuck in a perpetual cycle of misery.

* ThoseTwoActors: Scarlett and Chris appeared together before (''Film/ThePerfectScore'') and they would do so again (''Film/TheAvengers'', ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''), though by 2010, they would both be firmly seated in the MarvelCinematicUniverse, as the BlackWidow and the [[Film/FantasticFour Human Torch]] (this was before he was CaptainAmerica) respectively.
