Elderly aristocrats Lord Charles and Lady Diana Foxley give their staff - butler Benson and cook Margaret - a one week vacation while the Foxleys visit friends as they have rented out their historic mansion for that week to a multinational corporation. As they are proud people, what no one but the Foxleys are aware of is that they are doing so only because they are in dire financial straits, and desperately need the money to retain their outwardly lavish lifestyle.

i saw this movie this morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. While it was not the most intelligent movie ever made, I feel that the previous critique was a bit harsh. This movie was fun, no more no less. Admittedly the actors won't win any awards for their performances but in my opinion they pulled it off. The story was quit shady but at least it wasn't boring and repetitive. I also very much so enjoyed the music. To many movies play the safe road, stealing plots that have been used over and over. This plot was totally new to me and i applaud the movie for that. Silverstone was also as cute as ever. I feel that this movie is completely suffice for something to watch when there isn't anything else on.
