Did You Know?

Bob says that it would be "inappropriate" for him to be dating Ann Jamieson (Brooke Shields) while simultaneously working as her butler. He is quite correct. According to the International Institute of Modern Butlers code of ethics, a proper butler must, "Strive to maintain appropriate relationships and boundaries in all aspects of service."See more »
Continuity: 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 »
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.

Oddly Charming...for Tom Green, 16 July 2009
Author: terrencepatrix from United States

I randomly came across this movie on one of the premium channels at about 1:30am. The only reason I stopped scrolling through the channel guide was the name Tom Green. Everyone pretty much knows this name. This man wanted people to notice him, he wanted to become famous. Well he did...and what was he most known for...famous for? Being an idiot.

I was a teenager during Tom Green's earlier years, and remember when he first premiered on MTV. He was an idiot, and to be honest I didn't care for his show. It was just gross shock humor and...being weird. I was more of a Jackass fan I guess. Freddy Got Fingered...I actually liked a bit more since it had somewhat of a plot, and the supporting cast worked off of Tom Green's capabilities at the time quite well. Still...stupid movie.

This movie on the other hand...was actually kind of charming. I didn't feel like smacking Tom Green in the face. He's humorous without being a moron. Almost, dare I say...endearing. Almost.

The basic plot is a man (Tom Green) has not as of yet found his purpose in life. He's resorted to simply trying every job there is in alphabetical order. Well he's failed his way through 'A'...and almost all of 'B', the last job in 'B' being "Butler". He takes a 5 day butler training course and is hired on by Brooke Shields (who is still smoking hot btw), who is a anal business woman with too much on her plate, to help manage her household and 2 children.

Although I'm an adult, not a very good one but an adult regardless, I thought this movie was interesting enough to sit and watch all the way through. It's totally child friendly, the plot is meaningful (kind of) without being too deep, so children will get it's, albeit weak, message. Tom Green plays his character straight, amusing without being too weird, he's goofy, but still comical. No antics that he's known for, so hardcore Tom Green fans will hate this. I'd personally like to see a medium between the two. A crazy Tom Green who can act without being a complete idiot. I'd probably watch that.

I gave it a 6/10 because it's a good movie. A watchable movie. Not exactly something I would spend money on though.
