The Nanny Diaries

I haven't seen this movie yet but it's one of those that I can't wait to see when it comes out on December 4th. I've been eyeing this movie since they were shooting in NYC, mostly checking out the cute pictures but staying away from spoilers. The main reason is Alicia Keys, but I like Scarlett Johannsen as well. The trailer looks like a cross between Uptown Girls, Mean Girls and Dennis the Menace.

Has anyone seen this yet? The promo website is hella funny, they have a whole section for nannies to vent called the Nanny Confessional. Looks like something we will definitely be checking out this weekend.

The Nanny Diaries” tells the story of the emotional and often humorous
journey of Annie Braddock (Johansson), a young woman from a working-class
neighborhood in New Jersey, struggling to understand her place in the world.
Fresh out of college, she gets tremendous pressure from her nurse mother to find
a respectable position in the business world although Annie would prefer to
trade in her blackberry for an anthropologist's field diary. Through a
serendipitous meeting, Annie ends up in the elite and ritualistic culture of
Manhattan's Upper East Side -- as remote from Annie's suburban New Jersey
upbringing as life in an Amazon tribal village. Choosing to duck out of real
life, Annie accepts the position as a nanny for a wealthy family, referred to as
simply "the X's." She quickly learns that life is not very rosy on the other
side of the tax bracket, as she must cater to the every whim of Mrs. X (Linney)
and her precocious son Grayer, while attempting to avoid the formidable Mr. X
(Giamatti). Life becomes even more complicated when Annie falls for a gorgeous
neighbor of the X’s (Evans) who she nicknames Harvard Hottie, and is forced to
explore what she wants to do with her life.

Sounds like a movie up my alley. Please let me know if you've seen it and what you thought.
