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 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.

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

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 »

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.

Excuse me Master Rascall...
10 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got a call from my Grandma who asked me to come down to her house and watch a Tom Green movie with her. After I hang up, I'm sitting there thinking, "Tom Green, as in 'Freddy Got Fingered?!'" And so me, my Dad and Brother go down to her house to investigate and we end up watching this hilarious little kid's movie with Tom Green, yeah, TOM GREEN.

The movie is about a guy who needs a job, badly, because he's going through the yellow pages of the phone book, starting with the 'A' section, then the 'B' section, finally when he gets to the end of the 'Bs' he comes to 'Butlering,' and decides, "Okay I'll try that." So he gets into butler training, then is hired by a family to be their butler, and hilarity ensues.

I usually don't watch newer kid's movies, I feel old (I'm 18) and like to stick to the old ones (Home Alone, The Nightmare Before Christmas, etc...), but this was a genuine classic on a stick. I laughed and the movie really teaches a lot of good morals, too. I felt Tom Green was not being himself yet still being very funny, which in the end, turned out to be a good thing. It was like when Arnold Schwartzennager did kid's movies, we all liked them, we just don't admit it.

There's really nothing offensive in the movie that won't go over children's head's e.g. Rocky & Bullwinkle or Pee Wee's Playhouse. I don't think that there's a single bad word in the whole movie and if my Grandma liked it, then it's definitely suitable for the whole fun filled family, trust me on that one.

All in all, the movie gets a 9/10. Tom Green should do more like this, it may not suit him, but it's good for him. Not saying that the dirty Tom Green isn't funny, he's hilarious, but this Tom Green just goes to show that there's more to comedy than poop jokes.
