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 somewhat pervert queer 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.

They hit it off pretty good. Of course mom played by Brooke Shields is a working mom caught up in working and forgetting about here kids. After some good deeds covered up and hidden away from mom. Gets Bob fired for the millionth time. However Bob knows everybody because of his million jobs that he has held. After he gets canned by ignorant mom. Bob hangs in here though and lands a Job on a Butler cruise ship. After mom finally wakes up and realizes that the man she has seeking after has been under her nose the whole time. In the end love triumphs and all ends happily with the turkey blowing up. All in all it was cute and funny and worth watching. Some good laughs and good moral stories to be taught and told.
