Goofy Canadian screwup Bob Tree goes trough the yellow pages alphabetically to pick jobs, applies and messes them up every time. In the B's, he arrived at butler and takes a wacky crash-course with the somewhat odd Mr. Butler. Bob gets hired, but really more as babysitter cum housekeeper for Jacques, his fuzzy lover Anne Jamieson and, most of all, her spoiled-rotten kids Bates and Tess, terrible handfuls which his unorthodox methods may at least take by surprise.

Bob says that it would be "inappropriate" for him to be dating Ann Jamieson (Brooke Shields) while simultaneously working as her butler. He is quite correct. According to the International Institute of Modern Butlers code of ethics, a proper butler must, "Strive to maintain appropriate relationships and boundaries in all aspects of service." See more »
Bob says that he is leaving for a yearlong cruise "first thing Saturday", but his apartment shows no signs of packing or preparations for storage. If he's going to be gone for a year there would be no reason to keep his apartment. See more »
This is Tom Green at his best! The only thing wrong with this film is there wasn't enough of it! I loved this movie, and frankly, I am amazed at Tom Green's ability to render such pathos. I loved his manic humor in earlier films, but this was simply superb work on his part as an actor. Brooke Shields has never been so charming, and I just loved her in this movie. She was perfectly cast for this film. Unfortunately, Tom Green spends far too much time behind the camera instead of in front of it these days, and we are losing a national treasure because of that. He now has a special place on my list of favorite actors - that I will go to the movies to see anything he is in. Tom, please star in some more movies! I will throw down ten bucks to see any movie you are in, just because you are in it!
