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.

Amazingly, "The Chateau" provides raw humor and entertainment to the very end. Director Jesse Peretz manages to get the best performance EVER out of Paul Rudd (Clueless, Cider House Rules, Romeo & Juliet). Paul Rudd (Graham Granville) and newcomer Romany Malco (Alan 'Rex' Granville) play brothers in a hilarious fish out of water scenario in which they are brought together by an unexpected inheritance of a French Chateau.
"The Chateau" is far from formulaic. Romany Malco's versatility not only provides a good dose of hilarity to the film but his character is both intimidating and sexy at the same time. He is truly a unique talent that deserves to be attached to such a film. Paul Rudd manages to flub the French language in such a way that makes his terrible rendition of the French language painfully funny! This is the best performance I have ever seen from Paul Rudd and I hope to see many more.
I found this film both entertaining and inspiring.
