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 gets out of the motorcycle's sidecar, the retaining line (which pulls her skirt off) can be seen attached to the undercarriage of the cycle. See more »

Quotes

Bob Tree: I'm studying to be a butler.
Bates Jamieson: Hmm. I don't like it. 'Master Bates' just feels... wrong.

I was surprised
15 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was expecting a very crude movie. Our kids wanted to see it, but we have a rule that any thing rated above a G has to be watched by my husband and I first. I was surprised it was a good family movie. It was by no means Oscar quality but it was a movie that my husband and I had fun watching and so did our 7 children. I plan on adding it to our families movie library. I'm a big Brook fan and was happy to see her in something again. It did have some small off color moments. However, it was much better then most movies that are out right now. I would definitely recommend it to any Family. It's not very often we find a movie that my husband and I really like and so do all the children.
