Storyline

Jack always lands on his feet. He lands on his feet when he marries the beautiful Sarah. He lands on his feet when he buys a luxurious new house. However, when Sarah goes into labor, he takes a tumble down the stairs and lands on his head. When he comes around he discovers he is the proud father of a baby girl, but deficient in the spouse department to the tune of 1. He hires the help of a novice nanny, but at the end of the day, it's Jack who's left holding the baby. Written by Tim McSmythurs <Tim.McSmythurs@swindon.ericsson.se>

Very sweet
3 March 2004 | by RachelLoneSee all my reviews

Jack (Richard E Grant) and Sarah (Imogen Stubbs) are parents-to-be and they are thrilled. They are so happy. Jack has a successful career and a fine house. All this change when Sarah dies while giving birth to their first child. Jack is now a widower and a single parent. He has so much work load and he can't just take his baby girl to work everyday, so now he's desperately looking for a nanny.

When asked what the baby's name is, Jack decides to name her after her late mother- Sarah. One day, at a restaurant, he meets Amy (Samantha Mathis), a young waitress from the States. Seeing how loving she is when taking care of Sarah, Jack soon hires Amy as Sarah's nanny. But Amy is inexperienced regarding baby care and because of the fact that she's an American, Jack's family members and friend William (Ian McKellan)don't get along with her. Things get even more intense when Jack's mother, Margaret (Judi Dench) realises that they two fall for each other...

This film is about two love encounters (not one, but two!!) that take place in the least expected situations. It is hear-warming, entertaining, sweet and touching. If you've got tired of heavy action and special effects, why not give this one a go?
