The Nanny Express is Hallmark Channel’s newest original movie. Yet again, another great family movie to watch on a Saturday night. I’m looking forward to this one because I love Vanessa Marcil. I miss her as Brenda on General Hospital. However, many of you may know her better from Las Vegas; whatever the case she is an actress I enjoy watching.
The hallmarkchannel.com site says this about The Nanny Express,
By the time Kate Hewitt (Vanessa Marcil) walks through the front door of widower David Chandler (Brennan Elliott), he is a desperate man. His two children, nine-year-old Ben (Uriah Shelton) and teenager Emily (Natalie Dreyfuss), have already succeeded in chasing a string of six terrorized nannies out of the very same entryway. But Kate, who is caring for an ailing father (Dean Stockwell) and finishing up a teaching degree, needs this job and she resolves to stand up to whatever tricks and pranks the Chandler kids can dish out—and to help them cope with the death of their mother.
As Kate slowly wins over young Ben, dad David finds himself falling for the spunky nanny as well. The feeling is mutual, but a bitter Emily is determined not to let Kate into her life—or her father’s. Emily doesn’t realize that Kate understands exactly what she’s going through because Kate lost her own mother as a teenager. Somehow, Kate must find a way to reach the angry and isolated teen since Emily’s happiness—and Kate’s as well—depends on it.
The Nanny Express also stars Stacy Keach, most recently appearing as warden Henry Pope on Prison Break, Dean Stockwell, who most recently appeared as Brother Cavil in numerous episodes of Battlestar Galactica, and Brennan Elliott, most recently starring as Ben Saunders in the sci-fi series The 4400.
