After a lethal American attack robot, RS1, is unleashed onto the mean streets of Hong Kong, Asia's funkiest crime-fighting team, the Gen-Y Cops, find themselves on the wrong side of the law... See full summary »
When two American brothers, Graham and Allen Granville, learn that they have inherited a chateau in France, they cannot believe their luck. However, when they arrive, the brothers find themselves completely ill-equipped to communicate with the chateau's staff (even with the help of a pocket dictionary). With no hope of paying off the chateau's enormous debt, the pair are forced to sell the chateau, leaving a bewildered staff resorting to desperate and hilarious measures to keep their home. Through a series of comedic misunderstandings, the film's stars not only uncover they're not as distant from the staff as they might think, they also discover something about the importance of family.

I think this a very well-acted movie that has some very funny moments.
Unfortunately, I don't believe that it holds together and in the end, you are left wondering if it really made any sense.
I watched in on TV which may be the reason I enjoyed it more than the other commenter. This is not a big screen vehicle. This is really a small film that can be enjoyed as an alternative to watching the sitcoms.
I think that Paul Rudd does a great job playing the neurotic, try-to-be-nice-all-the-time, new age nerd. Romany Malco does a very solid job as a no-nonsense businessman, who tries to play it cool, but deep down is a sweet guy.
It is a pleasant film. A movie that seems to have more potential than it ultimately delivers.
