Tom Stansfield (Ashton Kutcher) is a researcher at a publishing house in Chicago but he wants to be creative. He has a crush on Lisa Taylor (Tara Reid) who is the daughter of his domineering boss Jack Taylor (Terence Stamp). Jack fires his secretary Audrey Bennett (Molly Shannon) blaming it on Tom. Lisa is housesitting for her dad but she wants to go to a party. Lisa asks Tom to housesit so that she can attend her party. Tom assumes that it's a date. Jack has crazy requirements for his owl. Then the irresponsible brother Red (Andy Richter) returns hiding from drug dealer T.J. (Michael Madsen). Audrey comes by to ask for her job back but she brings her annoying boyfriend Spike (Tyler Labine). Spike drives off and Tom reluctantly lets Audrey stay. Lisa's boyfriend Hans cheated on her and she comes home early.
Everybody is annoying in this movie and Ashton Kutcher is the welcome mat for them to walk all over on. The screwball slapstick is annoying. Everything and everyone annoyed me in this movie. This is a David Zucker film but it needs to get the characters right before the slapstick comedy could actually work.
