Tom Stansfield (Kutcher), a researcher at a publishing company, is asked to house-sit for his Control Freak boss Jack Taylor (Stamp), who also happens to be the father of his Love Interest Lisa (Reid). Naturally, everything that can go wrong does, and Hilarity Ensues.
This film provides examples of:
- Bad Boss: Good lord, Jack. All his employees are scared shitless of him, and he is known to fire people for little to no reason.
- George Jetson Job Security: Jack fires two employees right at the beginning for petty reasons, such as making a bad cup of coffee.
- Mistaken for Gay: Near the beginning, a suitcase mix-up occurs, leading to a gay porn magazine falling out right as Tom is talking to Lisa.
