The Perfect Nanny is a 2001 thriller movie directed by Robert Malenfant and starred by Tracy Nelson, Bruce Boxleitner, and Dana Barron. The film tells the story of a young couple, Melissa and Dan (played by Nelson and Boxleitner), who hires a nanny named Debbie (played by Barron) to take care of their young daughter, Sally. However, as Sally grows more and more attached to Debbie, Melissa begins to suspect that something is off about the new nanny.

At first, things seem to be going well with Debbie. She's great with children and Sally takes an instant liking to her. Melissa, who works from home as a writer, is happy to have an extra pair of hands around the house, and Dan is pleased that Sally is so comfortable with Debbie. However, as time passes, Melissa becomes increasingly worried about Debbie's behavior. For one thing, Debbie seems to be spending more and more time with Sally, to the point where it's interfering with Melissa's work. For another, Melissa begins to notice strange things happening around the house, such as missing jewelry and strange noises in the middle of the night.

Despite Melissa's concerns, Dan is skeptical. He sees Debbie as a good nanny who is simply doing her job well. Melissa, on the other hand, can't shake the feeling that something is not right. She starts doing some digging into Debbie's past and discovers some troubling information. As Melissa's investigation continues, she uncovers more and more disturbing facts about Debbie's past, including a history of violence and mental illness.

The tension between Melissa and Debbie escalates, as Melissa struggles to protect her family from the nanny's increasingly erratic behavior. The situation comes to a head when Sally suddenly falls ill, and Melissa realizes that Debbie may be responsible. In a race against time, Melissa must try to save her daughter and stop Debbie before it's too late.

Overall, The Perfect Nanny is a gripping thriller that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The film's strong performances and tense atmosphere create a sense of unease that builds steadily throughout the story. Tracy Nelson's portrayal of Melissa is especially noteworthy, as she convincingly portrays the character's fear and desperation as she tries to protect her family. Dana Barron also delivers a chilling performance as the disturbed nanny, lending an air of authenticity to the character's mental illness. Overall, The Perfect Nanny is a must-watch for fans of suspenseful thrillers.

The Perfect Nanny is a 2005 tv movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.9.
