Storyline

Goofy Canadian screwup Bob Tree goes trough the yellow pages alphabetically to pick jobs, applies and messes them up every time. In the B's, he arrived at butler and takes a wacky crash-course with the somewhat odd Mr. Butler. Bob gets hired, but really more as babysitter cum housekeeper for Jacques, his fuzzy lover Anne Jamieson and, most of all, her spoiled-rotten kids Bates and Tess, terrible handfuls which his unorthodox methods may at least take by surprise. Written by KGF Vissers

Much to our surprise...we love this movie!!!
15 January 2006 | by jandcand4See all my reviews

Knowing that Tom Green was in this movie, we automatically thought that this would definitely be a sorry, vulgar, non-family movie. We were shocked to be wrong on all counts. There were some questionable parts, but overall it gets 12 thumbs up from our family! Tom Green was great & our kids just love this movie! We just got the DVD, and we've already watched it 3 times. I am still in shock that Tom Green was in a good movie and did a great job acting! I recommend "Bob the Butler" to all! People need to see this, just to be in total disbelief that Tom Green can actually act. Parents just need to preview it first, so they will know when to hit the mute button, or forward on a couple of occasions. :O)
