This is an above average Christmas film to make you feel happy and full of the joy of the season. It tells the story of Ally (Vaugier), an advertising executive who loses her job just weeks before Christmas. Unable to pay the bills and mortgage she asks her friend, Tina (Thompson) for a lending hand, as her sister works for a top Advertising Agency. Unfortunately, there's some confusion in what positions she's applying for and instead of getting a job in the company Ally is hired to Nanny the bosses kids.
One of the saving graces of the film is that the kids are not nasty. So many of these types of film have the children being shown that it's better to be nice than naughty, so as to avoid Santa's naughty list. So what we have is a heartwarming tale of a family pulled apart by ambition and career finding their way back to the right track and getting their priorities straight.
The acting, on the whole, is pretty decent, though there are a few moments where Cain does a good job of hamming it up. I'm not too sure if this is intentional, though, for me, the film would have been stronger if his character had been straight and not over the top - as the comedic value was lost to the film.
Overall, this is a nice Christmas film that I would recommend to all who love this time of year. It's also a nice family drama and romance, so if you enjoy them then grab a hot chocolate and put your feet up this winter and enjoy.
