Summary

Bob Tree is an extremely clumsy and accident-prone guy, incapable of holding down a job. Bob has the best intentions with the worst luck, but he will not accept this as his destiny and decides to enroll in Butler School in an effort to refine his inept ways. Anne Smythe, a single mom with two kids, is spinning out of control trying to balance a high maintenance French boyfriend, a stressful job and unruly, bratty, pre-pubescent kids. A desperate Anne, in dire need of assistance, stumbles across one of Bob's old babysitting flyers and calls. Much to their delight, the kids find Bob to be a real pushover and convince their Mom to hire him fulltime. Anne is pleased when she learns Bob has attended Butler School and assumes she has found a trained professional to look after the kids, cook and clean. After fooling Anne into believing Bob is the calm, collected individual she's needed, hi-jinks ensue. One catastrophe after another, finally gets Bob fired, but not before ! he helps the kids through multiple crises! Ultimately realizing this, Anne begs Bob to rejoin the family and quickly their romance blossoms.

Movie Reviews

I have to say I (like a lot of people) was expecting a crude barely watchable abomination of a movie.  My only reason for watching it was Genevieve Buechner. I was very pleasantly surprised to find it was not only a very family friendly movie but still funny. Tom Green really showed he can do more than crude humor and some of parts were even rather touching. All in all its safe for the kids to watch with only some minor cursing (damn, anal) while still being funny enough for parents to enjoy it. Also for the curious Conchita Campbell fans her speaking part is cut from the DVD version but she is seen in two parts thou only very briefly. *glares at the editor who cut her part*
