Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang \/\/TOP\\\\
Cyril and Celia arrive at the farm a day early, and quickly get on their cousins bad sides. When Isabel arrives home, the children are fighting. Nanny McPhee eventually shows up, claiming to be an "army nanny" who has been deployed to help Isabel. Using her magic, Nanny McPhee quickly brings the children under control.
Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang
Meanwhile, Miss Topsey and Miss Turvey arrive at the farm house, telling Phil they've decided not to remove his kidneys, but they've decided to stuff him instead. In the meantime, Mr Edelweiss has blown up after eating the putty, but Nanny McPhee bangs her stick and Edelweiss lets out an almighty burp which causes a wind which flattens the barley and blows Miss Topsey and Miss Turvey out of the house.
Nanny McPhee, who claims to be an army nanny in this film, wears medals on the left side of her chest. She has seven in total. When she leaves at the end of the film, she awards Isabel and the children with each one of the medals except for the basket-work medal, which disappears. She awards the medals to the following:
The main antagonist is Phillip Green, the brother of the late husband of Isabel Green. He is being forced be an unknown contract holder, who orders the two ladies to collect the family farm from Phil. When he proves unable to give them a farm that is claimed in an I.O.U., they threaten to take his kidneys. Before they are able to, however, Nanny McPhee disposes of the pair by banging her stick on the ground and blowing them away.
All of this is connected somehow with the decision that Cedric Brown makes to admit Nanny McPhee into his house in the first place. If a formidable and terrifying female, dressed in black and banging a lethal walking stick, should arrive at an American door all covered with warts, the residents would push the panic button on their security systems. Only in this world (based on the Nurse Matilda books by Christianna Brand) would such a creature be welcomed.
Emma Thompson stars as the mysterious nanny who appears when she's needed the most and wanted the least. She finds herself at a family farm where mayhem has broken out between some boisterous country children and their spoilt city cousins. Relying on everything from a flying motorcycle to a tree-climbing piglet, Nanny McPhee conjures up just the right formula to teach her charges five important lessons.
As to the objections that some parents may have about magic and such, I can say that this film is no Harry Potter. It is more like Mary Poppins-meets-Narnia. As for me, I chose to interpret the character of McPhee as a prophetic angel figure. She banged her staff on the ground (like Moses or Aaron), and she caused things to happen like the angels did in the Bible (people not being able to speak temporarily, or having a dislocated hip and so on). It has a more benevolent feeling to it, and the movie promotes family values and morals throughout; however, I will concede it names no source for the moral compass that is presented. 041b061a72
