NANNY MCPHEE RE­TURNS

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

In this se­quel to the mod­er­ately suc­cess­ful 2005 fea­ture, Nanny McPhee (Emma Thomp­son) helps out an­other fam­ily with her spe­cial Mary Pop­pins­esque blend of magic and whimsy. This time, she’s aid­ing a sin­gle mother (Mag­gie Gyl­len­haal) who is over­whelmed when her chil­dren’s un­ruly cousins ar­rive. The more in­ter­est­ing as­pect of this fran­chise is that usu­ally it’s men who are made ugly for comic roles — beau­ti­ful women don’t of­ten get that treat­ment. Go Emma! Rated PG. 109 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Not re­viewed)
