Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
The film is about Marlo, a mother of three, including a newborn. Marlo's brother gives her a night nanny as a gift. Hesitant with the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully.
When Marlo asks Tully what she'll do tonight and Tully replies 'The same thing I do every night: try to take over the world!' she's paraphrasing the catchphrase from Pinky and the Brain. See more »
Early in the film, an elderly woman looks disapprovingly at the main character ordering a decaf coffee (after telling her that caffeine is bad for the fetus). In fact, caffeine is bad primarily because it raises blood pressure without providing any nutrients to the fetus. This is not the case with decaf coffee. The blood pressure change associated with decaf coffee is not statistically significant and puts the baby at no risk of harm. Theoretically, if a pregnant mother drank dozens of cups of decaf coffee it *might* increase her blood pressure but it is very unlikely (not to mention very difficult to actually achieve that level of consumption).

If I had a dream that didn't come true, I could at least be pissed off at the world. Instead I'm just pissed off at myself.

A heartwarming movie about a struggling mother of two, who is also pregnant with her third child. The boy is "quirky" and needs special attention which doesn't make matter easier. When the third baby is born it gets even harder for her. Luckily much needed help arrives in the form of Tully, seemingly a young hip version of Mary Poppins, who helps her with the kids and also to find herself again. The movie is funny, weird and moving. Charlize Theron and Mackenzie Davies are both good in it. Glad I saw it and would definitely recommend!
