Mr. Nanny is a 1993 comedy-action film directed by Michael Gottlieb and starring wrestler-turned-actor Hulk Hogan. Hogan stars as Sean Armstrong, a former wrestler who reluctantly takes a job as a bodyguard to protect two precocious children from their father's enemies. Sherman Hemsley and Afa Anoai co-star as the children's father and the head of a criminal organization respectively.

The film begins with Sean Armstrong enjoying a day on the beach with his girlfriend, but his peaceful day is interrupted when he receives a phone call from his old teammate, Burt Wilson (David Johansen). Burt is now working as a bodyguard for a wealthy family, and he offers Sean a job with the family as well. Sean initially turns down the opportunity, stating that he's retired from wrestling and wants to move on with his life.

However, Sean changes his mind when he learns that the family in question includes two young children, Alex (Mason Gamble) and Kate (Madeline Zima), who are in danger due to their father's involvement with criminals. Sean sees the opportunity to use his skills to protect the children and takes the job.

The children are initially resistant to Sean's presence, but he quickly wins them over with his humor and charisma. However, things take a turn for the worse when the children's father, Stuart (Sherman Hemsley), disappears and it becomes clear that he's been kidnapped by the criminal organization led by Thanatos (Afa Anoai). Thanatos wants to use Stuart to gain access to a valuable computer chip that he's developed.

Sean is forced to use all of his wrestling skills in order to protect the children from Thanatos' henchmen, who are determined to get their hands on the chip. Along the way, Sean forms a close bond with Alex and Kate, becoming a father figure to them in the absence of their own father.

As the film progresses, Sean's relationship with the children grows stronger, while his clashes with Thanatos become more intense. Despite his reservations about returning to his wrestling career, Sean realizes that he's the only one who can stop Thanatos and save the children.

Along with its comedic moments, Mr. Nanny also features action-packed scenes that showcase Hogan's wrestling skills. The film is a fun and entertaining family movie that combines humor, action, and heartwarming moments to create a memorable experience for viewers.
