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 »

Quotes

Lord Foxley: Benson, do you hate me with every fiber of your body?

Fun, with the right mixture of laughs and great music ...
19 May 2003 | by kechara420See all my reviews

This film is not Academy Award material, but then, it's not supposed to be. What it IS, is a delightful story about interesting, funny characters who end up being more human and dimensional than you think they will be.

Peter O'Toole and Joan Plowright steal many scenes at Lord and Lady Foxley, while Keram Malicki-Sanchez shines as the band's conflicted guitarist, Flit. Sanchez is an extremely talented musician and songwriter in his own right, and he gives Flit life with his seemingly boundless energy and expressive features. (His eyes alone speak volumes!)

I highly recommend this film to anyone who wants to relax and watch a bit of lighthearted fun.
