ALONG CAME A NANNY (2014)

October 12, 2014 2 Comments

Each time Hallmark debuts one of their many, originals we have come to expect a kind of consistency of them. Some of those things include the assurance that the film will be family-friendly and certainly a happy ending. Or sometimes it’s merely enjoying the frequency of seeing familiar faces in our favorite TV films.

Along Came a Nanny (2014) Hallmark TV Film Review

The latest premiere stars Cameron Mathison (My Gal Sunday) as Detective Mike Logan, whose district is plagued by robberies, specifically a well-to-do subdivision. Only trouble is, there is very little the police can do without clues. The mayor is getting worried which puts pressure on Mike’s captain. Turns out, there is only one elite group of people that might offer an in for the job; the nannies. This means Mike becomes a nanny! 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 Lancaster).

Who doesn’t love a fun mystery to solve; particularly one that premieres on a Sunday night when staying in is the only plan. That’s the picture perfect notion for this cute and fluffy mystery, which is just like its title suggests. It’s got a nice cast (many of whom you’ll recognize from prior network movies). Plus 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). This one is no less cute albeit a little tougher to take seriously. There is more “silliness” to the sleuthing than I expect, however the premise is too cute to dwell on the minor flubs.

The cast is fun; in particular the scenes with Mike and Jessie are entertaining since they weren’t of the average “romance” relationship. He tries to be charming and she’s less receptive than usual towards him. This 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. All in all, this is really quite a fun little movie. Like anything you see from Hallmark.
