Bob the Butler begins as Bob Tree (Tom Green) has just bungled his way out of yet another job. He’s an extremely clumsy and accident prone guy, with an odd combination of best intentions and bad luck. Refusing to accept this as his destiny, Bob decides to enroll in Butler School in an effort to refine his inept ways. Anne Smythe (Brooke Shields), a single mom with two kids, is spinning out of control trying to balance a high maintenance boyfriend, a stressful job and unruly, bratty 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 needs, hi-jinks ensue in this US-Canada-England co-production.
