In the TV movie Manny Dearest, the protagonist is single mom Karen Clark. She hires Alex Stanley (Mitch Ryan) as “a manny” (a male nanny) to watch her two young sons Max and Rex. The problem is Alex is a lunatic and is willing to kill people in order to get what he wants (their family). Don’t worry, Karen fends him off…and with an aluminum baseball bat!
