If the title character is back, you can be sure Emma Thompson is playing the role again, and it should come as little mystery that the sequel's plot sounds a lot like the premise of the television series "Supernanny."
The literally magical McPhee is summoned to help a woman ( Maggie Gyllenhaal) tend to her children while her husband is away on military duty. Maggie Smith, Ralph Fiennes and Rhys Ifans also appear. DVD extras: seven "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by director Susanna White; deleted scenes. *** (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
