Movie Review: The Nanny Diaries


A young girl out of college played by Hollywood’s It girl gets an opportunity at a high class job and enters a world she previously knew nothing about. Her boss is a self obsessed rich elitist miserable bitch with marital problems. The young woman takes on the seemingly impossible job, devoting all the hours of her day. Her loved ones are ignored as she needs to divert attention at the drop of a phone call to her controlling boss. She eventually earns the respect of the people she works with, and somehow becomes sympathetic to the plights of her very unsympathetic boss. But at the end of the day she needs to learn to put herself first. The movie I just described could easily be The Devil Wears Prada, but it isn’t. I’m talking about another popular book to film adaptation, The Nanny Diaries.

The Nanny Diaries

The Weinstein Company is moving the big screen adaptation of The Nanny Diaries (trailer) back FIVE MONTHS. The new Scarlett Johansson chick flick was scheduled to hit theaters on April 20th, but will now bow on September 7th 2007.

While a last minute release move is usually a bad sign, Harvey Weinstein claims the movie was made to push the film in awards contention. The movie will be released right at the beginning of “Oscar Season”, and the DVD release will coincide with the Golden Globes. The studio head also claimed that he didn’t want the film to get lost in the Summer of Sequels. I’ve seen the trailer, and I’m not buying the “awards season” excuse. Something smells fishy.

The Nanny Diaries was helmed by Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman (American Splendor) and co-stars Laura Linney, Paul Giamatti, Chris Evans and Alicia Keys.
