Storyline

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. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The scene where Mr. Butler is showing his students how to help the master dress is quite realistic. Prime Minister Winston Churchill, for example, had a butler help him dress almost every day of his life. See more »

Goofs

When Anne "has a date with Bob", Jaques calls her. In the first shot the radio clock in the bedroom of Jaques shows "2:33". Then it shows "2:39". In the third shot it shows "2:34". The last possible look at the clock you can read "2:37". See more »

Quotes

Bates Jamieson: Why do you call me 'Master'?
Bob Tree: I'm studying to be a butler.
Bates Jamieson: Hmm. I don't like it. 'Master Bates' just feels... wrong.
Bob Tree: Indeed.

Fun fun fun...
9 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at Cannes... a week of serious meetings and rubbish dinners and I laughed and laughed at this light hearted break from the reality(?) of the festival.

The little bit of anti-French humour was hilarious.. Especially as I watched this film in Cannes.

While the movie is reminiscent of Doubtfire, it is much less sappy and way more slapstick. Tom Green is decidedly more normal – while being as strange and funny as ever – than we have seen in his teen flicks.

Shields is, as always, stunning and beautiful and, also as usual, combines her graceful beauty with physical comedy and well delivered (punch) lines.

The children in this movie were very well cast, they make the movie in a number of ways that can't be discussed without a spoiler warning! Go out, rent this movie, order a pizza and enjoy.
