The end of summer is usually the time when studios take a dump on the unknowing public, expelling all of the garbage heaps that have been either delayed due to creative problems or held up because they stink! The Nanny Diaries, an adaptation of the popular novel by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, has been delayed for quite some time, and—wouldn’t you know it—it’s getting released at the end of the summer. It’s currently being smacked around by a majority of critics, who save their best barbs for this time of year. Here’s the kicker … it’s actually pretty good, in large part due to the excellent cast (including Scarlett Johansson in the lead) assembled by directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (who made the excellent American Splendor). While this picture didn’t blow me away, I was mildly entertained the entire time. That’s pretty good for a late-summer cinematic dump.
