Along Came a Nanny (2014)

October 12, 2014 2 Comments

Each time Hallmark debuts one of their many – and charming,
originals we have come to expect a kind of consistency from said production.
Some of those things include the assurance that the film will be
family-friendly and certainly a happy ending will ensue or sometimes it’s
merely enjoying the frequency of seeing familiar faces in our favorite TV
films. The latest Sunday night premiere stars Cameron Mathison (My Gal Sunday) as Detective Mike Logan,
whose district is being plagued by robberies, specifically a well-to-do subdivision. Only
trouble is, there is very little the police can do without clues, but the mayor
is getting worried over seeing this case closed which puts pressure on Mike’s
captain – and there is only one elite group of people that might offer an in for the job: the nannies. This means Mike becomes a nanny and he
manages to snag a job taking care of siblings Ava and Lucas (Jena Skodje, Valin
Shinyei), and strikes a friendship up with the neighbor’s nanny, Jessie (Sarah

Who doesn’t love a fun mystery to solve – particularly one
that premieres on a Sunday night when staying in and cuddling under your
favorite blanket are the Sunday night plans you have in store? That is the picture perfect notion for
this cute and fluffy mystery, which is just what this title is made of. It’s
got a nice cast (many of whom you’ll be able to recognize from prior network
movies) and a story that evokes memories of movies like The Nanny Diaries or ABC Family’s Au Pair (there are plenty of nanny – ahem or is it “manny,” gags) and
this one is no less cute albeit a little tougher to take seriously. There is
more “silliness” to the sleuthing than I expected, however the premise is too
cute to dwell on the minor flubs that I may have had with the script. 

The cast is fun; in particular the scenes with
Mike and Jessie are entertaining since they

weren’t of the average “romance” relationship. He
tried to be charming and she was less receptive than usual towards him, which set up some
cutesy conversations in true Hallmark format. Also a reason to be grateful is
the lack of a traditional “break up” of the romance and the addition of the fun
banter between Mike and his co-workers, especially when a certain picture of
Mike in a Tiara is used as a joke in the office – and of course, if that makes
this sound like something you’d enjoy watching, tune into the premiere tonight.

Along Came a Nanny premieres
on Hallmark Movie Channel tonight, October 12th. Watch the preview video!
