"After being released from a mental institution, a typical borderline psychopath poses as a nanny in an attempt to form a perfect life with a handsom man. But she becomes dangerously jealous as her delusional dreams begin to crumble. Her escalating erratic behavior turns violent as she wrecks havoc on the household. Lots of action and suspense and a very intense plot. If you're into thillers like "Fatal Attraction", "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle", "Hush", etc. Then you should definatly see this one."
Wonderful schlocky entertainment!

"This is one of best best "bad" movies I have ever seen. Bruce Boxleitner is as wooden as a cigar-store Indian, while Tracy Nelson's screen-chewing performance as a psycho nanny rivals anything Sir Laurence Olivier ever committed to celluloid. Dana Barron also stands out, actually because she's a very good young actress with a great career ahead of her (if there's any justice in the world). Seriously, this film is so awful and cliched and gross that it's impossible not to love. Everyone seems to be having a good time revelling in the muck; you should too!"

I LOVE Tracey Nelson, although she's not a big Hollywood name. The Perfect Nanny is one of my favorite movies featuring Nelson, and is well worth a watch. The acting is good and overall, it's a good story, although somewhat violent.
The plot thickens when Nelson's unfaithful, controlling husband tries to "re-enter" her life, causing her to go somewhat "amok," and eventually she murders him to get the man of "her dreams," a doctor whom she housekeeps for and doubles as nanny for his two children.
If you like Nelson, and a plot that is interesting, The Perfect Nanny is for you."
