Chicago Sun-Times - 01/02/2004
"[T]he balance between Murphy's childlike guilelessness and Fanning's precocious maturity is uncanny."

Product Description:

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning star in this charming romp about a young woman and a young girl who are thrust together against the odds but ultimately teach each other something about life and love. Murphy is Molly Gunn, a rock and roll princess whose father was a famous music legend. She lives wildly off her inheritance--until the man in charge of her money takes off with it. With bankruptcy staring her in the face, she is forced to do something she never dreamed of--get a job. So she becomes a nanny--for precocious Ray Schleine (Fanning), an eight-year-old who acts more mature than she does but doesn't have much fun in life.

Boaz Yakin's comedy is filmed throughout New York City--including in Coney Island, Williamsburg, Henri Bendel's, and Central Park--and it takes advantage of that setting like few recent films. The streets of the city are another character as Molly and Ray slowly begin to develop a relationship that neither one ever dreamed would happen. The movie features support from Heather Locklear as Ray's very busy record executive mom, Donald Faison as Molly's party-loving music friend, and Jesse Spencer as Molly's musician boyfriend, who did all his own singing on the film and whose work appears on the soundtrack album.
