Contemporary fairy tale about a spoiled rock 'n' roll heiress (Brittany Murphy), who, after having her inheritance stolen, takes a job as a nanny for a precocious 8-year-old (Dakota Fanning), only to find out they are both in need of emotional healing. Seesawing awkwardly between light-hearted comedy and drama, the film, directed by Boaz Yakin, imparts a positive message about the importance of family, especially the effects parental neglect has on children's lives, but the inclusion of a lewd subplot adds an unnecessary sexual element to the story which proves its cotton-candy facade is grossly misleading. Several implied sexual encounters and dark emotional themes, as well as sporadic crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
