Nanny McPhee

Emma Thompson stars as in the title role of “Nanny McPhee”, a peculiar governess with a magical flare. When widower Cedric Brown finds himself at his wits end with his seven mischievous, rambunctious children, it’s up to Nanny McPhee to bring peace to the home by having everyone learn her five lessons. While watching this family friendly flick, try to find these movie mistakes!

· After Nanny McPhee has put the children to bed, they’re wondering how she knew their names. There is a back view of Simon sitting in the shadows when he says “it doesn’t matter…”. It cuts to a front view of him when he finishes saying “we’re getting rid of her tomorrow”. Notice how his mouth doesn’t start moving until after he begins talking and doesn’t stop moving until a few moments after he’s finished speaking.

· Nanny McPhee walks up on Evangeline reading her book. Evangeline hands the book to Nanny McPhee and in the close-up view of her (when Evangeline mentions she hasn’t finished it yet), the fabric bookmark is pulled a couple inches outside the top of the book. The scene cuts to Evangeline when she mentions the stepmother and then back to Nanny McPhee and the bookmark is now pulled further out of the book and folded at the top.

· When Nanny McPhee is telling Cedric that Lesson Three is complete, the left side view of Cedric sitting at his desk shows him picking up a pen in his right hand. When it cuts to a close-up of him, it shows him picking up the pen again.

· Mrs. Quickly arrives at the home. When she’s about to sit in the chair, Cedric notices one of the children with an arrow. He quickly grabs the pillow from the chair to “make it comfy”. The pillow he picks up from the chair is the brownish/rust colored pillow that’s always been in the chair throughout the movie. But in the close-ups of the chair (as he’s fighting to get the arrow), there’s a bright yellow pillow in the seat. But the pillow he puts back in the chair is the original brown colored one. Later in the scene, when the children put a tarantula spider on Mrs. Quickly’s head, Cedric jumps to get it off. As he jumps towards her, his outstretched arms and hands are at her neck and shoulders. It cuts to a back view and his hands are now at her waist.

“Nanny McPhee” (2005) stars Emma Thompson, Colin Firth, Kelly Macdonald, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Holly Gibbs, Angela Lansbury, Imelda Staunton and Celia Imrie. It runs 97 minutes and is rated PG for mild thematic elements, some rude humor and brief language.
