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.

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 »
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 »

A co-worker and I were surprised that it was a good movie (I work at Blockbuster)!!!! You can find this movie (at Blockbuster) in the kids section! I would let children watch this. There are no obscenities and such....but a part where "Bob" is baby-sitting the two kids and calls "Bates" Master Bates, but just calls him Bates. That's the only thing in there, but I didn't see any reason not to let kids watch this movie! The ending is positive. I hope Tom Green can do more appropriate movies such as this! His others (that I've seen: "Freddie Got Fingered" & "Road Trip") were disgusting! Brooke Shields is a good actress as well. I recommend that you see this movie because you'll enjoy the storyline and content.
