Alex graduates as valedictorian in glorious rascally style, but during the stunt one last time chases a babysitting au pair, now for Sara. So his stepmother Jenny must do it herself again on Oliver's tropical surprise vacation, with some help from Katie, who is allowed to bring along her study buddy Ariana, to Alexa's taste when they arrive in a Puertorican villa managed by Nigel's brother Rupert. While the girls swoon over local rental bikes entrepreneur Danny, jealous Katie sabotages Alex's buddy romance with Ari, which proves more painful for all of them then dodging the clueless bodyguards. Oliver meanwhile can't escape from the threat posed to his company's future, a water motor, a legacy for Alex incompatible with the heir's artistic ambitions, posed by executive rival Walter Hausen at board level.

Thanks for writing in. I'm the creator of the Au Pair "trilogy" and writer of all three films. People often ask me what happened to this third movie, why it fell so short of the first two. I've held my tongue for quite a while now, but I think these queries and comments deserve an explanation. Whereas Au Pair and Au Pair II were shot from my and Cheryl's script, this third time out, after I had written a truly fun, lovely sequel that properly caught up with the Caldwells and flowed from the previous two plot-lines (and prompted the director and stars of the first two to return), an unwise, unscrupulous executive at the network opted to rewrite the script herself, just prior to production. She did this without telling me, our stars or our director -- and, I discovered, without ever having even watched the first two films! She then hacked the budget and shooting schedule way down as "an experiment" till AP3 became just a difficult and ludicrous exercise for all involved. Scant bits of my plot, my scenes and dialogue remain thanks to our stars' and director's insistence, but virtually everything cogent, fun and heartfelt was mindlessly butchered out. I'm still saddled with the writing credit, which is how it goes I suppose. The truly difficult part for me is that the many, many fans of the first two Au Pairs were shorted. That exec is now gone from the network -- and so, I'm afraid, is the chance for a correct and satisfying conclusion to these widely beloved films.
