Spoof-meister Zucker should have let this one stay on the shelf where someone had wisely left it. Instead, Kutcher and Reid are at the center of a gaggle of tasteless and largely unfunny mishaps and gags. Tom (Kutcher) is a clueless schlub who works for Jack (Stamp), a tough-as-nails publishing exec. Wanting to further his career and get in good with Jack's party-hearty but pretty daughter Lisa (Reid), Tom takes a job house-sitting for his cantankerous, and very particular, boss. You can just smell the comic possibilities. Unfortunately, that's not the odor emanating here, despite a solid supporting cast, which includes a typically pneumatic appearance from Dimension Films icon Electra. The whirlwind of destructive disaster, and Kutcher's deer-in-the-headlights routine runs as thin as Electra's t-shirts.

this movie is pretty funny, and Ashton Kutcher is hilarious! Tom works as a researcher at a publishing company, and wants to move to the creative department but his demanding and intimidating boss, Jack Taylor makes him lose his nerve after just spending five minutes with him. Tom is also attracted to his daughter, Lisa, whom her father also controls. When she tells Tom that her father is making her house-sit on the night of a party she wants to attend, he tells her that she should stand up for herself. Lisa says that she will and he asks him to come to their house. He thinks that she likes him but in reality she wants him to fill in for her. Tom reluctantly agrees, but when Taylor's black sheep son, Red and Taylor's secretary whom he just fired show up at the house things start to unravel. Eventually some other people show up and Lisa who came home, sees how Ted feels about her but doubts his sincerity. And Tom is scrambling to make things right.
