Our Score
Youngsters who like their prehistoric monsters to rampage around theme parks aren't going to be particularly impressed by this offering from Disney, in which a top-secret formula is hidden by aristocrat Derek Nimmo inside the skeleton of a dinosaur at the Natural History Museum in London. There's not even a sniff of a velociraptor, but there is Peter Ustinov as a Chinese agent and Helen Hayes leading a gang of nannies that even Mary Poppins would be hard-pressed to join. A couple of kung fu fights, a very silly car chase and some wildly over-the-top acting help liven things up.

Summary

Chinese secret agents try to get their hands on a stolen microfilm hidden in a dinosaur skeleton in London's Natural History Museum - but a group of indomitable nannies comes up with a plan to stop them getting hold of it by stealing the prehistoric remains. Disney family comedy, starring Peter Ustinov, Derek Nimmo, Joan Sims and Helen Hayes.
