Nanny Diaries, The
Source: Catholic News Service
When a recent college graduate (Scarlett Johansson) turns her back on Wall Street only to be accidentally hired by a wealthy couple (Laura Linney and Paul Giamatti) as a nanny for their son (Nicholas Resse Art), she must conceal the situation from her ambitious mother (Donna Murphy) and, as the stress of her new job becomes overwhelming, can only rely on the support of two close friends (Alicia Keys and Nathan Corddry) and on the sympathy of the handsome preppy who lives upstairs (Chris Evans). Writer-directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini's adaptation of the best-selling novel aspires to be a comedy of manners, but is hobbled by a simplistic message (rich is bad, working class is good) and characters who are, with few exceptions, walking stick figures. One use of the f-word, some crude and crass language, occasional profanity, partially concealed sexual activity, sexual advances, implied adultery and premarital sex, brief gay references, brief female disrobing without nudity and implied divorce. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
