Storyline

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. But when the agency through which they hired the temporary cook and butler for the renters goes bankrupt leaving them with no temporary staff, Lady Diana believes the only way they can get away with this rental plan without incurring a costly penalty or to advertise their financial problems is to act as "Benson" and "Margaret" themselves, much against stuffy Lord Charles' wishes and despite they not knowing how to be domestics. What the Foxleys are unaware of is that the multinational corporation is a front for Global ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

When James is driving Nat away from the estate, a vehicle can be seen passing on the left side of the vehicle headed in the opposite direction. Since the setting is supposed to be England, James' vehicle would have been in the left lane and opposing traffic would be on the right. See more »

Cute formula movie
7 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

Lord Charles and Lady Diana Foxley have a spectacular house in England, and servants Benson and Margaret. But they can't afford to continue their magnificent lifestyle unless they make some changes.

Benson and Margaret are given time off, and Charles and Diana pose as Benson and Margaret as they rent out the house. An American rock band known as Global Heresy need some quiet time away from the spotlight, and this house will do nicely. The kids act pretty much the way one would expect at first, expecting the servants to do everything for them and bossing them around like they are entitled to whatever they want.

When the kids play their loud music, Charles cannot believe this is what passes for music (I agree with Charles, and unlike the stuffy aristocrat, I never changed my mind about this; nevertheless, the kids have talent). Diana is willing to be hip, though. Eventually, the kids treat them like human beings and even help them do their jobs better.

A couple of dramas are going on in the meantime. Natalie is the band's new bassist after Ben disappeared mysteriously, and she is trying too hard to make a contribution. Some band members just wish she would leave things alone, but others like what she adds to the group, particularly in the area of songwriting.

The band's management want to control the music, while the kids think their new contract will allow them to. But the people in charge don't believe the kids' vision of their music is what will make the most money. James, the man in charge of keeping the band happy, is working undercover to sabotage the band's efforts.

There is actually a third drama: Charles' nerdy but attractive niece shows up to work on a science project and is discovered skinny-dipping. She and her uncle don't get along, but one of the band members seems to have a crush.

Peter O'Toole and Joan Plowright both give fine performances. Plowright especially stands out because her character is so caring. No, this is not the sort of movie either would be known for. But I don't imagine most of us who like this sort of movie would be easily persuaded to see their best work. The other actors are good, for this sort of movie. Alicia Silverstone is different from some of the other characters I've seen her play, but still talented.

If anything, the movie was too short. I would have like to see more story development.

One gag that never worked for me: the evil paperboy. However, when Charles finally got his revenge ... see, the kids didn't know what was actually going on.

It's formula, but I like the formula.
