While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
When a young man agrees to housesit for his boss, he thinks it'll be the perfect opportunity to get close to the woman he desperately has a crush on - his boss's daughter. But he doesn't plan on the long line of other houseguests that try to keep him from his mission. And he also has to deal with the daughter's older brother, who's on the run from local drug dealers.

Tom Stansfield (Ashton Kutcher) works in a publisher and has a very tough boss, Jack Taylor (Terence Stamp). He aims to have the chance to work in the Creation Department of the company. Tom is `Mr. Nice Guy', never being upset and helping his colleagues, and has a crush on Lisa Taylor (Tara Reid), the daughter of Jack. When Jack has to travel to Singapore, Lisa is in charge to housesit her father's house. However, she has a party in the evening and invites Tom to go to her place. Tom misunderstands the invitation of Lisa, thinking it was for a date with her, but when he arrives at the house, Jack is waiting for him with lots of recommendations and procedures to be followed. Jack has obsession for a neat house and his pride and joy is an owl. I believe it is no spoiler to say the everything goes wrong with Tom along the night, with the owl escaping and the most weird visitors arriving in and destroying the house. Although being very silly and full of clichés, sort of `Risky Business' and `Meet the Parents' together, this movie is also very funny. Using lots of scatological and black humor, it is almost impossible not laughing in many situations. Forgettable, but I liked it. Further, the DVD is full of extras. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): `A Filha do Chefe' (`The Boss's Daughter')
