Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang!

Well, I was going to post this ages ago but it ended up being posted today. Sorry guys.

Nanny McPhee and the big bang was Awesome! We all watched it and thought it was great. The next day Daddy and Braedon bought it from Kmart!

Spoiler do not read if you don't want to spoil anything!


On a farm in Britain during World War II, Mrs. Green is driven to her wits end by her hectic life. Between trying to keep the family farm up and running and her job in the village shop, aided by the elderly and slightly mad Mrs. Docherty. She also has three boisterous children to look after, Norman, Megsie and Vincent. All of this she has to do while her husband is away at war. So when her children's two spoiled cousins,
Cyril and Celia are sent to live on their farm and another war is being fought between the two sets of children, she is in need of a little magic. She hears a mysterious voice telling her that she needs Nanny McPhee and to her astonishment, Nanny McPhee appeared on her door step one stormy night.

Nanny McPhee arrives to take matters into her own hands. At first, the children do not listen and carry on fighting, but after a bang of Nanny McPhee's stick, they soon realize that they cannot go on fighting, and the two eventually learn to tolerate each other. For instance, Megsie gives Celia some of her best clothing when the ones she brings are ruined, which had made her resort to wearing their mother's wedding dress. Meanwhile, Mrs. Green's brother in law,

Uncle Phil has gambled away the farm and is being chased down by two

hit women. He desperately attempts to make Mrs. Green sell her half of the farm, using many mean and spiteful schemes to make Mrs. Green have no choice but to sell the farm. His plans include digging a hole so that the family piglets can escape. Mrs. Green takes all the children on a picnic during which an ARP Warden, Mr. Docherty warns them all about bombs and how he imagines a pilot might accidentally release his bomb in the remote area in which the family lives. At the end of the picnic Uncle Phil delivers a telegram saying that Mr. Green has been 'killed in action' in the war. Mrs Green believes the telegram, along with everybody else. But Norman says that he can "feel it in his bones" that his father is not dead. He tells this to Cyril, who at first says it is just because he is upset, but then agrees to support and help Norman to determine the truth. So the two boys decide to ask Nanny McPhee to take them to London to the war office where Cyril and Celia's father works.

They travel to London with Norman and Cyril ask Cyril's father Lord Grey (Ralph Fiennes), who is very important in the War Office, what has happened to Mr Green. At first he scoffs at Norman when he tells him about his disbelief of his father's death, but after Cyril angrily informs his father that he knows that his parents are getting a divorce, Lord Grey goes to check what has happened. While he is gone, Cyril tells Norman that he and Celia have been sent away because their parents will be splitting up, and Norman asks where Cyril and Celia will live. When Cyril replies "with Mum I suppose, not that it makes much difference, she only ever really sees us when she wants to show us off", Norman tells Cyril that he and Celia are welcome to go and live on the farm with the Greens. Cyril's father returns and tells Norman that his father is not listed as K.I.A, but M.I.A and that there is no record of a telegram ever having been sent to Mrs Green.

The boys then leave and Norman works out that the telegram brought to his mother by Uncle Phil was in fact a fraud, the meanest of all Uncle Phil's attempts to get Mrs Green to sell the farm. While the boys were at the War Office, Megsie, Celia and Vincent were trying to stop Mrs Green from signing the papers and selling the farm, Just as Mrs Green is about to sign the papers, a huge bomb is dropped, but does not explode and is sticking out of the barley field. When Nanny McPhee returns with Norman and Cyril, the children go out to watch Mr. Docherty dismantle the bomb, but he falls from the ladder and faints, and Megsie takes over. She succeeds with the help of the other children and Nanny McPhee's putty eating bird, Mr. Edelweiss. Nanny McPhee then helps to harvest the barley, with a little magic, and she and Mrs. Docherty, who seems to be familiar with her, watch the family celebrate. During their conversation, it is revealed that Mrs. Docherty is, in fact, baby Aggie from the first film; Mrs. Docherty says to Mr. Docherty "Nanny McPhee hates 'goodbyes', I remember from when I was young' and she then holds the rattle she had as a baby seen in the first film. 'Nanny McPhee lives by a rule 'when they need her but do not want her, Nanny McPhee must stay. But when they want her but no longer need her, Nanny McPhee must go.' As Nanny McPhee walks away from the now happy family, the children and Mrs. Green chase after her, determined to prove they still need her. However they discover that they in fact do not, as they round a bend to see that their father is descending from the hill, passing Nanny McPhee along the way. Mr. Green in army uniform and with an injured arm, runs to the arms of his children and wife and rejoices in the discovering that after leaving three children to go to war, he has returned to find five.

My fav charcters are:
