En español | Bill's take: Thompson (who also cowrote the screenplay) reprises the snaggletoothed nanny who magically makes everything right for a troubled family—this time a British mother (Gyllenhaal), her three children, and their two spoiled cousins—as they struggle to run their farm while Dad's off fighting World War II.
Meanwhile, the sublime Maggie Smith threatens to steal the movie with her small, delightful turn as a scatterbrained shopkeeper. The sequel promises the original's enchanting, unapologetic determination to convey equal helpings of humor, fantasy, and McPhee-ish tough love.
